3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: It really depends what kind of group you are involved in. I try to steer clear of the party scene since I'm focusing on school.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I'm not a huge sports fan, but I know evergreen is big on their athletics.

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Seeing as there is no Greek life here I can't really rate it. What I can say is that this school is even better because it doesn't have a stupid green system.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Being a transfer, the process was quick and painless. I really was pleasantly suprised with evergreens admissions.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Financial aid at evergreen is similar to many colleges in the area

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Academics at evergreen are great.

5 College Sophomore

Administration: Evergreen can be very lenient when t comes to students taking a stand on subjects they believe in.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Olympia has a wide range of restaurants and food stores to shop at or dine in. There's definitely a little something for everyone here.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Evergreen does support students in findig off campus housing in their price range. However some places are up to the students to retrieve. For example some of the apartmers that are further off campus.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Evergreen state college really cares about their students and likes to create a safe environment for all kinds of people from all sorts of different backgrounds.

4 College Junior

Academics: The academics vary greatly by professor, level, and class. If you research your class, your professors and whats required of you before hand, you can get a very good idea of what your quarter will look like.

3 College Junior

Local Area: Olympia WA is a very progress, forward thinking city. Most people are very open minded and welcoming towards students. There's not a lot of places to shop, but if you like needless throwing away money Seattle is close by. Needless to say, fashion is in the eye of the beholder in Olympia. Creativity is typically valued higher than designer names. There are many cultural events.

Campus Quality: The facilities are great--I have everything I need here from the gym (I love going to the sauna!) to the expansive woods where you can just explore.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: I LOVE Olympia!! The atmosphere is great and everyone is friendly. There are so many things to to outdoors in Olympia and in the National Parks surrounding the area. Downtown is fantastic with lots of dining and shopping options (lots of thrift stores and coffee shops).

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are lots of affordable options for off-campus housing. Most people move off campus during their first or second year because it's cheaper than living on campus.

College Freshman

Greek Life: We don't have any frats or sororities and most students see this as a positive aspect of the school.

3 College Freshman

Administration: It's pretty easy to "get away" with things on campus, but the security is still there and they will catch you if you're being dumb.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are lots of job and internship postings online, although it's pretty hard to find a job in Olympia. There are always people on campus recruiting and there are SO many internships that I think Evergreen really prepares you for! Most of these are geared toward upperclassman, but that's a given.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't really attend parties but people seem to enjoy themselves and they are pretty safe.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Campus housing is very expensive, but as far as I can tell the dorms are nice compared to other colleges. The proximity to everything on campus is great, the rooms are spacious (for dorms) and there are good options. You have to buy your own toilet paper for your suites, but it promotes an independent and "adult" atmosphere that's kind of nice. I also really like that there are thermostats in the room to control heating!

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Crime seems to be less of a problem on this campus. Although there have been sexual assaults this year, they were announced clearly to the students. The campus is well lit and police officers are available to escort you anywhere on campus.
