3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: School's been okay so far

1 College Junior

Overall Experience: It is difficult to encapsulate why I hate evergreen. Maybe it is because of the hypocrisy--the trendy, liberal school who does nothing for their students. Teachers are often apathetic or view their class as their therapy, opening up about their entire life stories. With the no grading system it is incredibly difficult to receive an objective evaluation. In the end one of my professors told me that they just did not like me as a person. There are very few accommodations to make life bearable for dorm students. Vital facilities, like a bathroom fan/vent, were left broken for an entire quarter. One time my heat broke in the middle of a cold snap and was not fixed for three days. I did not realize that the issue was the heat and thought I was dying.

Health & Safety: So far this year we've heard of two sexual assault cases. There are some Minor theft cases that happen, but mostly get solved very quickly. The police in Evergreen work very hard to protect students and the campus.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: There is no real fan support or pride for Evergreen sports. We rarely hear about the Sports teams here in Evergreen. The Athletic facility needs renovations in their sauna rooms, weight rooms, and cardio room.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It really depends, the rent is more expensive but there's more freedom. It is better than being stuck in a concrete building.

Party Scene: People at college parties here in Evergreen are mixed. Either you have students who are playing games and chilling out, or you got students in the A Dorm getting drunk and smoking weed.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Way better than anything Evergreen can provide, the off-campus dining is really nice.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I rarely eat on campus, as there is so little vegetarian food and it is extremely expensive.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is very near by, practically on campus, and with very reasonable rates.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There are almost always parties going on, and some variety in who attends.

Off-Campus Dining: Downtown Olympia is covered in restaurants. Eating out can get expensive but there are a variety of great places.

2 College Sophomore

Administration: Rules regarding drugs use are very lax and then rarely enforced. Drinking is allowed in some on campus housing, which makes it difficult to regulate who is drinking. Weed is very prolific. My RA seems very disinterested in us, even allowing students to babysit dogs in their rooms.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I was originally offered no financial aid, but then received a full scholarship.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is not awful, though there are very few amenities for the price. The dorms are very poorly designed and generally not very clean. It is very convenient to class, however, which I appreciate.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The program style means you can get stuck with really awesome or not so awesome professors for a whole quarter. I've found that the programs I've been in so far to be really engaging.

Guys & Girls: People are really free to express themselves on campus. This leads to some really awesome and genuine connections.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are some really awesome places on campus to eat...the Flaming Eggplant is great but it's not on the meal plan so you have to pay outside of that (which is fine). The Greenery is pretty bad..but it's nice that it's a buffet and they usually have enough vegan options to get by.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: Almost no one goes to games...it's really like athletics hardly exist on campus.

1 College Freshman

Athletics: Evergreen does not care about athletics. The gyms are terrible and the only sports they play are soccer and basketball and only every now and then. There is no school spirit.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The off campus housing is good and has lots of options. You have to be careful of some areas but everything in Olympia is within close proximity of the school so it's a good place to find options.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Dining is good out here, kind of pricey and not that diverse but at the same time there are enough to places to hang out and eat without feeling like there's nothing there for you.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The school feels very hands off and lots of accidents happen with drugs and alcohol around campus.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Scholarships were alright but I felt that they could have worked on more on getting better financial aid options.

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: Party scene is not great unless you either want to get high or do hard drugs with people you know nothing about.
