I've grown a lot as an academic student and as a person going to Evergreen. It has helped me find my passion.

Evergreen is a great place to earn an education. It is easier than most places here to realize that you get out of the experience what you put in. If you are willing to push yourself and really invest yourself, you get a lot out of it. The interdisciplinary nature of the classes make each experience well rounded and deep.

What I liked about that school was everyone was different, no one was the same. It made me feel like I could be myself and no one judged me for being me. I could say what makes my school unique to other school is that it's very open minded to a lot of things that some schools don't have. In that school it doesn't matter if you're bi,lesbian, gay,straight, Trans, what matters to them is that you do what makes you happy and pick the course that best suits you. If I were to choose my schools again I would choose this one, this school has the biggest effect on me, and it made me more open minded to things that I wasn't open minded to.
