SHHHHHHH

Quiet hours will begin on Monday, April 28th, with all four levels of the library stacks designated as quiet spaces.  Loud and unnecessary noise will not be tolerated in any part of the library, including the Information Commons. Group work must be confined to the group study rooms, the living room areas of the Forum, the DAC (ATH322), and the library classroom (ATH326).  

Point out a early bird college student, and we’ll eat our hats. 

No, not really, don’t take that seriously. We know you exist.  But, still, really, seriously?

Ever fly over Goucher? The campus is super recognizable, partially due to the copper topped auditorium shown here.

A Mid-Century Modern Dormitory complex at Goucher College in Towson, Maryland. Construction and concept overseen by Otto Kraushaar. 1966.

Design features some great post and beam architecture, along with breezeways that are uncommon for architecture of this style in the north east.

Stimson sounds so fancy. 

He was probably the most secure human being I’ve ever met… There are so many of us that walk around with insecurities and what people think about us, and Matthew just didn’t care. He was playful, he was energetic, he had the greatest sense of humor. He was just an amazing human being. Tomorrow, our campus will probably be decked out in Hawaiian shirts because he brought Hawaiian Shirt Wednesday to Goucher with him from Texas. That’s just the type of kid he was. He was playful and energetic and confident, but yet just one of the smartest people you will ever meet.

Slightly puzzled Bmore didn’t make the list (since we do make so man similar ones), but an FYI if you wanna try someplace new after graduation…

This theory is probably somewhat true? Yes?

I’m pretty sure there’s a magical wizard who goes around at night opening up all the flower blossoms on the trees at Goucher College

It makes the most sense out of anything today. Or ever.
