I feel content with my way of life at Goshen College. I didn't think I would be attending this college at first because it's so close to home. I was actually supposed to attend Valparaiso University, but due to some financial issues, Goshen College was able to welcome me in. My academic advisor makes me excited for my Major, and in general there is so many possibilities academically. I like knowing I am safe on campus and can join a lot of activities without fearing judgment.
Ironically, it isn't really FULL of Mennonites. I'm not going to lie to you, there are definitely some, but not as you might be thinking, packed with them. The student body is well diverse, and with varying intellectual inputs in various areas. I tend to be the student that just goes with the ebb and flow of the whole atmosphere, as I found myself to fit into the span of things. As my first year is starting to progress into it's later stages, I notice that it's slowly starting to challenge me as I thought it would right off of the bat. Overall, if you like a diversity of cultures, opportunities, and people-- added in with a great learning environment with tons of caring professors, GC might be a good fit for you.
It is a diverse and respectful environment. There is a lot of inclusion and discovery of other cultures.
A safe place to express yourself in many different ways and be who you are unashamedly while pursuing your academic goals and aspirations. The staff is friendly, involved, and cares about your wellbeing. Everyone is genuinely happy that you’re there.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Goshen College is 62%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
I would say that it's about finding what you love and going with it. Find the atmosphere in which you would be most comfortable for a college campus and you may be in the right place. As to the experience, I recommend choosing your major based on the classes you would like to take. It is good on your resume just to have a degree; it is not necessarily pertinant what it is in as long as you can show you followed through the four years to complete what you set out to do. Another word of advice is not to spend all of your time in your room studying. Yes, it is important; turn in all your work on time and make sure to have plenty of time to complete it, but do not isolate yourself. From college, you are going to remember the times you spent growing closer to your friends and having times of bonding.
Goshen College is a small libral Chrisitan college that focus on five main core values: Christ-Centerd, Passionate Learners, Servant Leaders, Compassionate Peacemakers, and Global Citizens.
Liberal, hippie, commie, peace-lovin', Bush-bashing, pot-smoking, GLBT-friendly, dirty, smelly democrats.
College can be a lonely place and it takes time to settle in.
Although 45% of the students are other than Mennonite, its assumed most people are mennonite and as a result the non-mennonites feel excluded and are assumed to agree with the masses.
It's a small campus which allows you to be able to concetrate on your academics and not get too ditrtacted, while also allowing you to have fun on and off campus.
Everything! All the people are nice professors, students, and administration. They want you to do well and to be successful.
A person who isn't academically ready for the strong educational committment.
The Goshen student body sums up to about 1000 total kids. At times this is pretty frustrating. Knowing almost everyone gets old pretty quick if you don't feel like you're connecting well. The city is also a issue. Small town cops are awfully fussy over the littlest things and it's easy to rack up fees from both the college and police.
I don't brag about my school, really. Except for the lack of homework I have.
Someone interested in the arts and simply learning about the world. It's a liberal arts education, providing a well rounded introduction on multiple subjects. The students at this school tend to be interested in art in one form or another whether it's drawing and decorating or just decorating creatively.
