            1953-1957, Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)

            Proud to Be a Goucher GraduateYI attended Goucher from 1953-57. My degree was in Mathematics with a minor in Physics. I loved that the focus was always on "How to Think" rather than "What to Think" (and memorize). Because of the school's great reputation, I was recruited for my first job in computer programming for Westinghouse Atomic Power. And, I still have a successful computer business of my own.
