This is a liberal college, everyone here is laid back, friendly, interested in climate change, sustainability, and ecology. It is ok to have your own opinion, everyone is treated fairly and no one is made to feel left out or strange. There is something for everyone here.

The typical Evergreen, or "Greener", is generally interested in all things natural. This love of nature manifests itself in numerous ways on campus. Prominent examples include the student run organic cafe, "The Flaming Eggplant", and the student led organic farm which both reside on the Evergreen campus. In addition to the average Greeners love of nature many Greeners participate in social activism. Many Greeners participate in social functions ranging from Olympia community forums on public smoking to petitioning the Washington legislator to cap college tuition. Overall the ideal student for Evergreen would be one who both likes to get involved with the outdoors and one who likes to get involved in community events.

The typical Evergreen student strives to not only better themselves but to better the world that surrounds them. An Evergreen "Greener" is someone who looks inside of themselves to better understand how they can contribute to a brighter future. We often engage our fellow students in debates so as to better understand others perspectives as well as to become aware of issues faced by different groups of people. Sustainability, environmental awareness, the drive to learn in a completely non traditional academic setting, and the will to use a college degree to better your community instead of just yourself is the type of student that would be a perfect match for Evergreen State.
