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.

Local Area: I LOVE Olympia!! The atmosphere is great and everyone is friendly. There are so many things to to outdoors in Olympia and in the National Parks surrounding the area. Downtown is fantastic with lots of dining and shopping options (lots of thrift stores and coffee shops).

4 College Junior

Local Area: For a small city, Olympia has a lot of great things to do and plenty of cultural events. Plus, being less than 2 hours from Seattle and Portland makes getting to see bigger shows very doable.

Local Area: Olympia is right on the sound. Its gorgeous. You can see the Olympics across the sound on a good day. They are only a short drive away. The scenery around Evergreen is beautiful its right in the middle of a forest. If you like the outdoors its a great place. There isn't a whole lot to do in Olympia itself. Don't expect much of a nightlife beyond the handful of bars in the downtown area.

5 College Junior

Local Area: There are so many things to do here at Evergreen. We are in the middle of everything we are in between Seattle and Portland. The possibilities become endless because there are so many things to do, but if you want to stay in town their are plenty of things that will keep you busy. We are close to the mall only a short bus ride away. We are also very close to downtown with a plethora or shops to intrigue you. Olympia is sort of a college town and most of the coffee shops and restaurants close later in the evening so you can be out late studying or hanging out with friends.
