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.”
