"Gould has a relaxed, community environment. Students I didn't know at first would smile at me in the hallways and say hello, which made me feel much more comfortable here. Students at Gould really are nicer to each other."

"I chose Gould because the community seemed down to earth, and I felt like I would be intellectually challenged here."

- Isaiah ’20

"Gould affords me the opportunity to try new things, where I can fail without real consequences. There is an emphasis on developing the whole student, and that in itself should be a reason to attend."
