What is your overall opinion of this school?

The low-residency model of Goddard College is highly effective for individuals already proactive in the work force or their field of interest. Structurally, and with a strong faculty support system, Goddard generates independent, master's level students who end up with the self-awareness and tools to vocationally pursue their interests post-academia. For those students already involved in a community, job, and/or field that endorses independence, I recommend Goddard College as an outstanding academic pursuit.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

Goddard has a low-residency format where returning students spend 8 straight days on campus, while the rest of the semester is online. During this time, students work on their study plans for the semester, which brings us to another thing that makes Goddard unique. Unlike most colleges, Goddard does not have courses. Students design their own curriculum for the semester based on guidlines set by the college. This is documented in the study plan, which essentially functions as a syllabus.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

If you do better taking classes face-to-face rather than online, I would not recommend Goddard to you. Only 8 days during the semester are spent on-campus (9 daysfor new students). If you like urban environments or large campuses, I wouldn't recommend it. Plainfield has far fewer than 5000 people, and Goddard has a small campus. It also would not work well for those who want structured classes. Since Goddard does not have courses, responsibility is placed on the student to determine his/her studies for the semester, in the form of a study plan.
