The classes are all smashed together so you are able to learn while connecting everything together. The teachers are there to help you no matter what. They give you a evaluation that you are able to use on your resume. They accept the most genuine students they are all very nice and willing to help you.

This school takes the anxiety and stress out of school and lets you get on with the business of learning. we have no tests, no grades and no majors. we have evaluations and we do projects and papers. Lots of writing and reading, thinking and learning. Almost all our programs are taught by multiple professors so you get different angles on any given subject.You compete against yourself, not others, there is no grade curve!

One of the top reasons is it's non-traditional educational setting. All classes are review based and classes are picked as part of programs. For the most part, the education experience is highly individualized for each person. Students do not have majors, but they do have areas of emphasis. Another great reason to go to Evergreen is that college community is very open-minded and nature loving (basically hippies and social activist). Last but least is it's location. The Evergreen State College is located in the middle of a forest and next the beach. It's close to down-town Olympia. Overall, a very beautiful place to be live and explore.

The first reason someone should attend Evergreen is because of the location. Evergreen State is located in the Olympic peninsula of Washington and is nestled between vast forests and ocean inlets. This close proximity to nature allows for classes to be more than just sitting in a room while a teacher lectures. The second reason someone should attend Evergreen State is because they will receive an education experience that is unlike any other college. Evergreens professors not only teach you the material, but make sure you are as passionate about it as they are. Education at Evergreen does not just take place in a classroom, and most classes require field trips as well as hands on volunteering. For example my maritime history class will be going on a sailing expedition so all of the students can actually draw from experience to better relate to the material. The last reason someone should attend Evergreen State is because no matter your background, creed, race, religion, or sexual/gender orientation YOU WILL be welcomed with open arms. The liberal atmosphere at Evergreen State allows for a thriving atmosphere of acceptance and safety. College is a time of self development and acceptance of oneself, but that is impossible if it is within an environment that excludes people for their differences. At Evergreen State you will never feel unwelcome, and soon will discover you have a whole "Greener" family that supports you.

  1. You can create your own path of study. You can combine disciplines, choose what you like and leave what you don't, and make up your own classes if you have the ambition.

  2. Evergreen State College has great programs in computer science, biology, and environmental studies, alongside a diverse and in depth variety in the humanities.

  3. No grades! Students receive written evaluations from their faculty each quarter that details their work in the program. Careful though. You can still loose credit.
