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.

5 College Freshman

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

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I applied for financial aid with my FAFSA and with scholarships....I got money easily and it worked out really well.

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'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.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: It feels like Evergreen doesn't care about providing good food for students and many of their options are damaging to student health and not very well prepared. The greenery is the worst offender - some days having terrible service and a dirty environment that would warrant a health inspection.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is alright, it's not the best amenities and many things are outdated. The housing office doesn't really care about the student and will not get involved in situations that result in roommates having a disagreement.

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.
