Dear Prospective Student Athlete,

        The Goucher College Swim Team is affiliated with the Landmark Conference, and has affirmed a shared focus on institutional excellence that emphasizes our academic mission and a belief that athletic competition is an important component of the undergraduate experience.

        The Landmark Conference brings together eight excellent colleges and universities to compete in athletics, but we also strive to find ways to build relationships beyond the pool and create new opportunities for our student-athletes in academic arenas. Both the men’s and women’s squads are comprised of young, talented athletes who are motivated to win conference meets and to send qualifying individuals to the NCAA’s Swimming Championships. A summary of the achievements and activities of the men’s and women’s swim teams, as well as a list of top times for each event can be found by following the swimming links on the Goucher athletics website. By establishing yourself as a student-athlete, you have also demonstrated that you can contribute to our team goal.

        Goucher College is located in Baltimore, Maryland, about 8 miles from downtown Baltimore and just one hour from Washington, D.C.. Firmly committed to excellence in liberal arts and sciences education, Goucher is a small college of about 1,400 undergraduates and 400 students in graduate and continuing studies programs. The students come from over 40 states and 20 foreign countries. Class sizes are kept small, as evidenced by a student-faculty ratio of 9 to 1. There are a variety of majors to choose from such as business, pre-med, communications, pre-law, political science, and education to name a few.

        The continued development and success of the swimming program begins with student-athletes like you. I would like to speak to you further about the swim team and the role you would play as a member. Please take the time to fill out your contact and background information in the swimming prospective athlete questionnaire and submit it as soon as possible. Once we have received this, you will receive more information from the admissions office and further information from the swim team.
