The Evergreen State College is a public institution situated in Olympia, Washington. It is a member of the Council of Public Liberal Arts Colleges. At Evergreen there is no formal major program and undergraduates create their degree programs themselves, and instead of issuing grades, professors write narrative evaluations of the students’ work. The school offers its students access to high-grade equipment such as nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopes, studio cameras, and 3D printers.
Evergreen is a unique educational experience. Each student is responsible for their own education in a meaningful way; you can't get by just taking notes and passing tests here. Come here if you want your perspective on life challenged and ultimately changed.

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.
