Evergreen is known for its green facilities and strides towards environmental-friendly buildings/initiatives. We recycle all around campus, and the newly remodeled Sem-II building has remarkable air flow. We may be stereotyped for being a bunch of "hippie Greeners", but there is quite a variety of social diversity found on the campus. For the most part, the entire campus is accepting and acknowledging of differences between each individual, and we embrace these differences as a vital part of each of us. Academically, we are incredibly unique. Our classes are called "programs", and a student usually only partakes in one program per quarter, for 16 credits, about 17 hours a week. Each program is (typically) co-taught and utilizes interdisciplinary education. My first quarter here I was taking a course taught by a Ph.D. psychologist and established writer, exploring our selves and our stories throughout literature, writing, and the social sciences. Let's just say... if you are an independently driven learner with a passion for learning new things, you'll fit in well at Evergreen!

Due to the fact I live off-campus, I unfortunately don't spend as much time on campus as I wish I could. From what I've experienced and seen, the Recreation Center is very nice, complete with a sauna, pool, workout equipment, and our sports areas (track, basketball court, gym, rock climbing wall). We even have a challenge course in the woods! Our library has a newly installed, beautiful stained glass mural, and makes for a quiet study and social space. Evergreen clubs come in all different kinds and studies, and my personal involvement as a member of the Evergreen Psychology Society has been nothing but positive. Clubs give students the chance to teach and learn together about their favorite areas of study/hobby.

When coming to Olympia, WA know two things--it rains everyday so you MUST like the rain and that it is a very small town with not a whole lot to do. If you like the outdoors this is a great place for you. Downtown is a little sleazy at night with a lot of homelessness and bums. There are a few bars, but those are not very well kept up. There is a Westfield Mall in the center of town, and other shopping style places. Good asian food and other more upscale restaurants. Skiing/snowboarding is relatively close, about 3 hours away. Most people who rent out homes don't like college students because Evergreen gets a bad reputation for smelly, obnoxious hippies...however that is not all of us!
