"Baltimore is a great place to live because it has everything you can ask for—from a place to increase your knowledge to a place where you can enjoy the sights and relax."

Melvin's Story

Hometown: Rockville, MD

A first-year student, Melvin likes Goucher’s secluded, suburban campus in Towson. He also appreciates the many resources the Baltimore area has to offer. “If I want an internship in my major or a part-time job, the opportunities are boundless.” Recently, Melvin gained some teaching experience in the field, working with students at Boys’ Latin, a private school in Baltimore.

“Baltimore is a great place to live because it has everything you can ask for—from a place to increase your knowledge to a place where you can enjoy the sights and relax.” A perfect spot to relax is the Inner Harbor. It has special memories for Melvin; it’s where he had his high school prom. When he wants to see a movie, he goes to the AMC Loews White Marsh 16 where the workers are always nice and happy to see you.
