Evergreen State College Reviews

696 reviews
All Categories
Generally friendly students and faculty, with learning tools and exploring new interests and skills being easy access and highly encouraged. Class set up as 16 credit programs where you can study 4 subjects brought together with an over arching theme, combined with the fact you're with the same group of 40-50 students create a interesting and personable experience with learning. However, classes are not set up to help students build advance skills nor prepare them for real world careers, politically ideologies lean center left to extreme left, which makes it troublesome when having in class debates, and the administration and staff don't exactly seem to care for the success of the students.

The one reason why I gave Evergreen State College a four star is because of the independence to design my major. I get to craft my own curriculum while exploring myself and with others. However, if you read through other parts of the review, I note there are a ton of students that are snobby, entitled, and lacks social skills, or somewhat came from the hippies or postmodernist background. it is because of these reasons that the school has started to went downhill ever since the protest from last year, with the administration's people-pleasing attitudes. They started to fund the diversity and inclusion department when such money should go to study abroad, STEM, and the humanities. When it comes to the professors and students, I found there are two divided camps: the first ones are the serious minded who sets high expectations and give. The other camp is the social justice warrior with lousy identity politics with no common sense and show signs of mental disorders.
The Evergreen State College is a different kind of academic setting that, for those who apply themselves, allows for broader learning opportunities then most formal colleges. Evergreens programs are usually interdisciplinary meaning you would learn, and be accredited for, a few subjects in one course or program. This creates well rounded graduates who succeed in post graduate schools and in the workforce.
