With campus along the shores of Puget Sound, The Evergreen State College is a public liberal arts institution in Washington’s state capital of Olympia. Evergreen offers Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees without formal majors and students, also known as “Greeners,” create personalized degree programs from over 60 fields of study, also offering its students access to high-grade equipment such as nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopes, studio cameras, and 3D printers. In addition, Evergreen does not issue letter grades and its professors instead write narrative evaluations of students’ work. For a break from academia, the Evergreen campus features hiking trails, an organic farm, and a beach.
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.
