4 College Senior

Diversity: This is a totally diverse school and that's what is attractive to me about it.

Nightlife: I don't party and it is a 10 minute bus ride from campus so it is excellent as far a convenience goes because it takes effort to get to the party scene. I am here to learn, not to party.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: It feels safe on my campus and there hasn't been any issues I know of but that's not to say things haven't gone on that I just haven't heard about.

5 College Senior

Greek Life: I am not aware of fraternities and sororities on the Evergreen campus actually. As far as Greek and non-Greek that type of thing isn't an issue here.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Our mascot is a Geoduck which pretty much says it all. My classmates are soccer players and they are dedicated so if you want you can figure out how to get involved in some kind of sport.

3 College Senior

Academics: Too much work in too short of a time, good curriculum, facilities are good except no windows in lecture halls where you can spend 16 hours a week. Internships and job opportunities are there if you research them and talk to the right people. The advisers are very helpful.

3 College Senior

Academics: You get a whole cross section of people here just like anywhere, some teachers suck and some are really good. I like my community college teachers attitudes a lot better. Registration is easy and went smooth for me at least. You get to know the quiet spots to study if you are stuck on campus. I live close by so I study at home. If the curriculum doesn't work for you at Evergreen you can make up your own with as much guidance as you need or want so there are few limitations if you apply yourself.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: My classmates don't complain so I guess things are ok.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: I really don't pay much attention to others I am focused on my studies.

3 College Senior

Facilities: The architects that designed the lecture halls were asleep at the wheel in these areas, no windows all concrete.

5 College Senior

Scholarships: I was helped by the folks in financial aid whenever I asked. They were awesome

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I live off campus therefore do not know what the dorms or housing are really like. So sorry

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Olympia is a city, but feels like a town there are all the amenities, and things that a city would have, but it still feels small. small enough that you have a good chance of seeing your friends downtown.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The greenery is the main dining hall, thats where meal plan money is used, flex dollars can be used that the pod market, which is like a convenience store, bagel bros, wandering burrito, the pizza place, and the coffee place. the is also the flaming eggplant which is a student run place that only takes cash but is the best tasting, and most vegan/vegetarian option place on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: there are a few places to eat, the gym is nice, and the pool is usually busy, the main part of campus at red square is always busy and nice to hang out when its sunny. also the computer center and library are great and have free printing.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: I think the way the school is run academically really sets it apart. A big part of learning at evergreen is self motivation and using all the recourses provided. Its is also in the middle of the forest and close to town (the capitol of Washington) which is usually hard to get both.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: it all depends on the program you sign up for and the professors you get.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I like the way it works, with programs ranging from 4-16 credits for 1-3 quarters. there are also independent learning contracts.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I lived on campus my first year. It is great for making friends and meeting people, and its super convenient. its easy to get the room you want. there are singles-triples, most singles are in suites with 5-6 rooms.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Evergreen doesn't have majors, but you can have an emphasis. There are a lot of options so this type of program lets you learn what you really want to learn.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I haven't had an internship yet, but there is a lot of opportunity for them. Some are paid and credited. I plan to have one in my senior year. The internships have also helped many people start their careers

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far my favorite part is I get to choose what I want to study, my first year I studied environmental, animal, and computer science.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: I think there is mostly sexual orientation diversity, with some economic and religious

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: there are many options like living in houses with other students, co-housing, and apartments. Prices are fairly low

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Strictness: The officers around campus are diligent and kind, they aren't forceful or intruding at all.
