What Students Are Saying

3.41 Average Rating
I love attending The Evergreen State College because of the top quality education, student-supportive learning environment, and tailoring of educational experience based on my individual needs. Professors get to know you and celebrate your growth each quarter with an in-depth evaluation. The campus is also environmentally friendly, green and beautiful!

Evergreen pushes students beyond just learning to know and into learning to understand and apply their knowledge. Because it is a state college, Evergreen State is a great value for your money. If location is what you're looking for, Evergreen's campus is located in beautiful Western Washington and has often been mistaken for a national forest.
