Goucher Vagabonds

The 2013 Goucher Vagabonds team just wrapped up their two-week trek along the east coast between Northern Virginia and Maine. Along the way they met with incoming first-year students at send-off parties, interviewed alumnae/i about life post-Goucher, and made stops at several alumnae/i regional events. Read posts from this year’s journey right here and check out more photos and video on the Vagabonds facebook page at www.facebook.com/gouchervagabonds.

2015 Jewell Robinson Dinner Honors Four Remarkable Alumnae/i

The Alumnae & Alumni of Goucher College (AAGC) and Goucher’s Division of Student Affairs recently hosted the Ninth Annual Jewell Robinson Dinner on Friday, February 6. This year the event was larger than ever before, attracting more than 115 alumnae/i, students and guests.

Named in honor of the first African American student admitted to Goucher College, the annual event brings together members and friends of Goucher’s African American community in the spirit of celebration, reflection, and fellowship. The program for the evening included dinner, cocktails, and speeches from President Bowen and Jewell Robinson, herself, who shared words that were both timely and poignant.

This year also marked the inaugural presentation of the Marguerite Barland ’60 Merit Awards, named after the first African American graduate of Goucher. Congratulations to this year’s honorees: Pauline Anita Bigby ’70, Maxine Bigby Cunningham ’70, Minnie Waters Shorter ’73, and Percy Moore ’95. These individuals exemplify Goucher’s community principles, and through their professional and private lives, have significantly contributed to the diversity of our campus community.
