Evergreen State College Reviews
Evergreen allows individuals to have the freedom to design their own education and build independence. My only judgement I wish it provided more programs and classes. However, It’s interdisciplinary learning system allows students to learn in depth. But you have to work for it. Instructors and faculty work hard to help you achieve your goals. People here are passionate, diverse, and yes, eccentric. One sterotype about this college is that it’s just a punch dumb hippies and stoners. Yes there are the occasional drum circles in the hallways and the friendly neighborhood stoner named Kyle or Elijah or Shaggy but otherwise there are a lot less than I had expected. If you’re the kind of person who likes to challenge yourself and broaden your knowledge then Evergreen is the place for you. Especially if your interested in topics such as environmental science, visual arts, and social justice. I had my doubts at first about this college but I was pleasantly surprised and you will be too.
The Evergreen State College boasts an all-inclusive environment, difference in academics, and a community-based way of learning. As a trans, disabled, queer socialist student, I can assuredly say that this school is hypocritical in this arena. It's difficult to be anything other than a cisgender, hetersexual, white, liberal at this college. While there is a notable difference in academics, it's not exactly notably good or bad. Since you take one course (usually) per quarter, they expect your life to revolve around academics. Professors here are not as understanding as you'd like them to be. This all being said, it is (unfortunately) the most understanding and progressive 4-year in the Pacific Northwest. I am enjoying my time aside from the obvious blunders I've outlined here. And, of course, I have white privilege and cannot speak on the non-white experience at Evergreen.
The staff and teachers make an effort to connect with students like I've never experienced anywhere else. The education style is alternative, hands-on, and experience/discussion based. Perfect for students with different educational backgrounds and needs. Freedom to intersect interests and majors with the opportunity for independent study boundlessly expands the educational experience. Not to mention the campus is beyond stunning with over 700 acres of undeveloped land, including beaches and forests.
