What Students Are Saying

Similar to what I said above, your education here is highly dependent on your dedication. In general there are easy and more difficult classes, but if you're looking to just stroll through so you can a degree in the end you're going to have a bad time.

Evergreen pushes you beyond memory and into application. Even though there are no grades, that does not mean that a lot will not be asked of you in completing your coursework.
Suzanne from Burlington, WA
This a very hands-off kind of school, it is a school that allows you to choose your own path versus most non-liberal colleges that have a path already designed for you. But do keep in mind that in order to meet the requirements, you need to make sure to keep on top of the work you choose or you may find yourself struggling. If you choose to be in class, the work load can get very heavy at times but the professors are great at helping you get through it.
Andrea from Lacey, WA
This is really up to you. You receive the amount of credit you earn. Put in half the effort earn half the credit.
Marcella from Graham, WA
Depending on the professors, you can sail your way to an easy degree or trudge your way through heaps of hard work. The sciences at Evergreen are serious business.
Ursula from Olympia, WA
Challenging, but rewarding. You will read a lot, critically analyze and discuss material, and explore many different angles on subjects.
Olygirl
Very rigorous but not obscenely difficult. The rigor depends on you.
