Overall Experience: Should be shut down and have its endowment transferred to a real state school (UW,WSU,CWU,WWU,EWU)

2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I've heard of police racially profiling people in Olympia and around evergreen to several of my friends.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: If you are looking for an interesting and alternative education in a beautiful rain forrest, this is a wonderful place. If you are looking for somewhere where you will usually feel safe as a person of color and/or member of the LGBTQ+ community, it may or may not be the most comfortable place. However, Evergreen is safer in comparison to some places, it is really up to the individual's comfort level. The food is absolutely disgusting and overpriced and if you live on campus you must purchase a meal plan.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are always hiring for RAD services, as well in the restaurants on campus. Evergreen is known for having a high percentage of it's students getting into their fields right out of college.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's exactly what'd you'd expect from on campus living.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It promotes such a liberal atmosphere that if you'd considered yourself a radical liberal (as many students do), you'd probably be attracted to it, but after attending you notice the lack of diversity in the student population. Many people come here thinking that since tradition schooling is working for them, and many students drop out or switch out. But the education is the most unfiltered from the moderate-liberal western world view point. Very interesting classes and discussions in class. The teachers are usually warm and welcoming and create a safe environment for their students.

1 College Junior

Overall Experience: I do not like this school and I wish that I would have taken the time to put more effort in finding another school to go to.

1 College Junior

Athletics: We do not have a Athletics at the Tacoma campus.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I rarely worry for my safety on campus, but every once in a while we get those emails from the school detailing attempted sexual assaults that happened, so it's always in the back of my mind.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Most of my professors have been great, though there are two who I feel weren't particularly accommodating or understanding of their students.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I don't really know much. I know of three people who graduated and almost immediately got hired in fields they were interested in, but they could be anomalies.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I've never personally lived on campus, but many of my friends have or still do and these answers are based on what they've told me of their experiences.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are things I love and things I really dislike about my school. Most of the professors are great, but some are either too serious or too laid back. It's also getting more difficult to find programs that fit my interests, and I know many of my friends feel the same.

1 College Student

Greek Life: Our Greek life is terrible because it doesn't exist.

3 College Student

Party Scene: I don't really know. But I hear people say that there's places to go but just not proper timing.

4 College Student

Party Scene: I've been to a few parties. The word that comes to mind is responsibility. People clean up after themselves, have designated drivers or places to sleep, etc. No one destroys property, shouts profanity, disturbs the neighbors intentionally, etc.

5 College Student

Academics: The diversity is wonderful - I read the academic catalogs religiously. I am always excited about future classes.

2 College Student

Diversity: As a minority, it's always a red flag when a school presents itself as liberal because that attracts two kinds of people - die hard liberals and "kill all liberals" kind of people. What ends up happening is all these white people fight about racial issues and never let minorities speak. All these straight and cis people are fighting about gender and sexuality while the minorities aren't given a turn to speak. Etc. etc.

Drug Safety: It's very easy to access drugs and alcohol here. However, I feel like the culture does not pressure you nor do they condone hard drugs. Still, many people here shouldn't be taking drugs due to medical and mental ailments.

3 College Student

Health & Safety: In terms of direct physical safety, no one actively threatens that. However, as a very liberal school, many minorities flock to this school. But also being an alternatively functioning school, many students who aren't necessarily active students due to their misbehavior or inability to be nice use micro-aggressions or blatant discrimination to harass many minorities and they then can feel unsafe - including me.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: I'm only a Freshman and taken two classes. But the teachers I've met were wonderful, reasonably accommodating, and taught their material with a passion that really encouraged a thriving learning environment not just within myself but others. However, I've met many teachers who also seem they're not especially enthusiastic about being at Evergreen.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: There are many jobs available on campus. However, the diversity in job opportunity is bland and off putting.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: The living spaces are adequate but nothing special stands out.

3 College Student

Athletics: The facilities are well funded and available for recreational and professional use. The environment is set up in a way that either person would feel welcome stepping into the area.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: The Evergreen State College is a public university that does not function like a traditional university. This difference in teaching method helps brilliant students who don't fit well into mainstream society's standardized testing get the education they need the way they can understand it. The college also offers many opportunities for students to explore their passions and pursuits.
