Amy - 06/25/2022

I am in my second semester and living every second of it. Professors are always available and there to answer any questions I have. I have learned so much . I have successfully kept a 4.0 GPA and love the classes I have taken. Sometimes challenging but I always have free access to on campus or online tutors at all time.


Goodwin College is a commuter school with a very diverse population of students and faculty. Although this isn't the "typical" college environment, the education is excellent. The RN and BSN programs are outstanding. The RN program has connections with several large hospitals and offers well-rounded clinical experiences. The courses prepare students to pass the NCLEX boards to become registered nurses.


Goodwin College is the first college I ever attended. I left to go to a four year school in Massachusetts and ended up coming back, because the education was so much better here. The staff has been helpful and I look forward to continuing my learning here.


Pretty good college

  14. What is your overall opinion of this school?

    The best thing about Goodwin College is the staff, everyone I have met with and have been advised by is so helpful and mindful of what plan works best for me. They do not treat me like every other student, I am treated like an individual that matters and has unique needs. Compared to the other schools that I have attended, Goodwin has gone above and beyond any experience I have had in the past. The school size is just right, the campus is beautiful and modern. Classrooms are technologically advanced and up to date, which is hard to find in most schools. The most common complaint among people who look into Goodwin, not so much the students that attend the school, is the pricing. Yes, the prices are more than a community college, but they offer so many payment options and scholarships to the students so the price is manageable.
