Evergreen is a school dedicated to learning, acceptance and solidarity. There is an aspect of controversy that is embraced at Evergreen, as evinced by the mascot, a geoduck clam. If you come with a positive attitude, you'll likely be very happy here.

    Education is what you make of it. You get out what you put in. The motto is enter to learn, depart to serve.

    The Evergreen State College (TESC) attracts a diverse group of people that challenges ones perspective of self and society. TESC's curriculum embraces different learning styles through seminar discussion, lectures, hands-on activities and multi-media. Being evaluated with discussion rather than assigned a number or letter is the best!

    I am extremely fortunate to be attending TESC. With the way they structure their curriculum I have been able to learn in more detail and depth than I have at other colleges I have attended. TESC does not use a GPA and uses an evaluation essay and meeting with faculty at the end of each quarter to gage progress.

    Evergreen has amazing programs and helpful teachers. You just have to make sure to be on top of registration or you might lose your spot. I am transferring because I was not able to make any friends.

    This beautiful campus located in one of the many inlets of the Puget Sound, the Evergreen State College's secluded location in the corner of the United States cultivates alternative thinking and awareness. Evergreen's unique learning style attracts individuals from all different kinds of backgrounds; your bound to meet someone you never thought you could calmly approach. One of the strongest points of Evergreen is its emphasis on a learning community; you are given the chance to immerse yourself in your education alongside others who may have a different background but are at the same level as you thus deepening your learning.

    You can't summarize this college in just three sentences. This school is unlike any traditional style college; to quote it's website: its new and different, dynamic and relevant. The best things about this school; there are no grades, all classes are interdisciplinary, its student-centered, and the sense of unity and collaboration is unmistakable.
