I’m always inspired by what our community is up to and trust you will be, too. Please share widely!

Warmly,

Johnny's Jubilance

Graduating student Johnny Ridenour (BAS '14) chimes in about what brought him to Goddard:

"When I finally got it together to return to school after 20+ years off, I thought of Goddard. My Dad did the same thing when he looked for a way to fit graduate school into a busy family life in the late 1970s. He found Goddard’s low-residency program. He was thrilled to have folks like Raymond Carver as advisors.

“Rouse Me Like a Life" by Desmond Peeples (IBA '14)

 

"Goddard! Shivers up my spine like fingertips, the name does rouse me like a life. The place has given me no less than life, in fact – and a life of the kind I thought was out of the question.

"I came to Goddard in 2010 at a younger age than many these days, at eighteen or nineteen. I had been looking for and failing to find an institution of higher education that would, for reasons both political and pragmatic, trust me enough to give me a degree while staying out of my hair for four years.

"Why I Love Goddard!" Juanita Martin (BA HAS '14)

 

BA in Health Arts & Sciences student Juanita Martin, entering her Level 8 semester, on what makes Goddard College special:

"I landed at Goddard at the ripe age of 51 with more college experience than a graduating PhD student, but I had not completed any one degree.  I had credits in various fields, from business management to fashion design to holistic healing.

The Power of Indigenous Documentaries

A highlight for me of the Spring 2013 Port Townsend Undergraduate residency was our guest presenter Tracy Rector (photographed above by David Conklin.) Tracy is Executive Director and Co-Founder of Longhouse Media whose mission “is to catalyze indigenous people and communities to use media as a tool for self-expression, cultural preservation, and social change.”
