By the Numbers
What do you get when you combine compassion, conviction and serious smarts?
Solve Hard Problems
The Goshen Core is a unique set of courses for all students to help begin to see and create connections between different disciplines and investigate complex problems. With it, all full-time, first-year students receive an iPad to explore, learn and dream.
Get Personal Attention
With a student/faculty ratio of 10:1 and 93% of classes having fewer than 25 students, you’ll call most of your professors by their first name and gain connections that will result in lifelong mentors and friends.
Be a Global Citizen
80% of students study abroad, typically in our top-ranked and unique semester-long program, Study-Service Term. 28% are students of color (which includes international students from 36 countries, who are 9% of the student body).
