About This Place
Goucher's spread out, leafy campus north of downtown Towson is a mix of old and new. Founded as a Methodist women's college in 1885, Goucher is now non-denominational, open to both men and women and much larger than its original Charles Village home. The historic chapel from Goucher's past now sits only a few yards from the elegant glass Athenaeum, which opened in 2009. The liberal arts college attracts surprising speakers ranging across the spectrum from Arianna Huffington to Karl Rove. In 2005, Goucher became the first school to require students to participate in a study abroad program, offering students a $1,200 stipend to help them partake in the program.
