I graduated from Evergreen State College and landed a job at the Smithsonian Institution for ten years. It was an incredible experience, which resulted in two trips to Africa. As an adult learner, I knew what I wanted from the experience and got much, much more than I expected. The difference between my experience and that of those who have written negative reviews here? I attended the Tacoma Campus where Drs Maxine Mimms and W. Joye Hardiman stressed living and learning through your passions and then create the life and profession you desire. Works for me! I will be forever grateful to these two women and my Evergreen State College experience.

I graduated from Evergreen, I'm an average guy who returned to school to learn how to be a more thoughtful, skillful, and intelligent individual and find meaningful work after. Suffice to say, I've found all of these things. Evergreen is a place where students legitimately own their educations- they design their degree paths themselves.Our alums have gone on to run non-profits, found humanitarian organizations, work as surgeons, statesmen and Oscar-winning filmmakers. My personal opinion is that if you can't cobble together something for yourself at Evergreen- if you can't do the work at an institution designed to humanize education, then there may be little hope until you reassess your priorities.

I love my school. Great education, and extremely friendly environment. Generally, if you are a negative person, you won't like any school. If you have an open mind and a good attitude, you will have the best four years of your life here.

People of color please avoid Evergreen State College. My experience has been this school is undiverse, unprofessional, painfully racist, draining, stressful, uninspiring, boring. For the money you pay and experience you get I would not recommend this school especially if you are a person of color. Our all White staff and student body makes takes this school to a point where it's not funny it's just offensive. I look forward to graduating and moving somewhere with more people of color. One thing about Olympia and Evergreen is that it is very small. You will see the same people everyday around here without much change. This can be hard to deal with when there is an extreme lack of diversity as it is. Coming here as a person of color I thought I would find a warm, tolerant environment with Evergreen's unique grading structure. Overtime I have found the classes you take are all pretty much exactly the same structure only with different themes and course material. The problem with Evergreen can largely be traced back to the Seminar and unusually dense homework to be what pre-occupies 80% of my time here. The teachers here are all very scatterbrained and make up for our ungraded structure by overloading their students with text work. You will find most of your time here at Evergreen not spending time on what you want but rather running from a to b to keep up with class, printing papers and studying for seminar. This might sound fine to you but after a year of listening to other students recite text out loud class after class without much variation in this structure you will find yourself bored and unchallenged. Many of the older students here take ILCs (independent learning contracts) because the classes at Evergreen are so repetitive and wasteful that by the time your a senior you've really had enough. Seminar, a time in which we are supposedly to share ideas and thoughts is taken up by hearing mostly the same "smarter" White peers in the class and teacher go back and forth about text material. Expect most of your time at Evergreen not be spent with health and spiritual grown but rather making up for Evergreen's ungraded structure by being over assigned text for the next seminar. And with classes that have contained 2 or less people of color often I don't feel welcome to participate but rather more inclined to "explain" my race to people. This structure is not made for people of color. It is made for educated White people and I would greatly fault this school for seeing more people of color here drop out in frustration than succeed. Coping as a person of color with an all White school can be hard as the staff here is very ignorant, biased and passive aggressive. I often find myself dealing with moody micro-agressions or having people brush me off as a person of color almost every day in a way I've never personally experienced within my education. The amount of discrimination here and lack of representation will begin to effect your education and mental wellbeing in a negative way. Understand Evergreen is very racist school that is unwilling to take the steps necessary to diversify its staff and student population. This school is not for everyone. If you are White and trying to find yourself, if you have a quirky personality, if you are White and you identify as transgender, if you are gay/lesbian, an eco-major or hippie you will fit in. But if you are not used to a huge lack of diversity you if you are a person of color you will feel unrepresented, unwelcome and might not benefit from the full Evergreen experience. I would urge you to not attend this school and look elsewhere. Evergreen is a small school with many flaws. The problem here is there is a lack of will to change so under this progressive liberal veil is a very conservative, white dominate structure that in some ways is actually more constricting that a traditional graded college. It should really be said Evergreen is not a place for people of color.

I really do not think that this is a great school. I have a friend who graduated from this school, and his salary is only 10,000 dollars a year. Seriously, you won't get a good job from this school!

Evergreen is an amazing school. The open and rich academic possibilities of The Evergreen State College allowed me to explore subjects that I liked and had interest in. I found my voice as a writer, my passion for the visual arts, and was also able to deepen my understanding of contemporary social injustices so as to better direct my life's work in aiding the community at large. To top it off the athletics program allowed me to return to the turf, make memories and friendships that will last a lifetime, while also keeping in shape. I could go on and on, but I wont. I loved my experience at Evergreen and I do recommend this school to everyone who is looking for direction but is burnt out on traditional schooling.

I go to this school. I'm sitting in my dorm, right now. I'm telling you from personal experience that this is what I think about Evergreen, and it's my opinion that you may or may not agree with. Moving on. School wise, you get great resources, friendly staff, great classes, and a wide variety of options to choose from in terms of what you want to learn. I really enjoy studying here, and I think that if you live off campus and have your own agenda outside the school, it's remarkable. You'll be sure to find success and a path in education that you'll love and learn from. You won't be disappointed if you know where to look and what you want to do. HOWEVER, the populace of Evergreen is pretty... hippie. Not to say that's a bad thing, but if you're not into that lifestyle, you're not going make many friends. You're going find people who aren't, but it's hard. The weed and substance culture is absurd here as well. It's hard to avoid and most of the time you won't. It's not just some of the populace either. Either you're smoking, or you're drinking. That's pretty much how it goes. Also, if your views challenge the liberal agenda, good luck not getting pounced on by every student under the age of 21 in a 5 mile radius. Also, our mascot is a penis clam. Not even joking. The populace doesn't take itself very seriously either, so don't expect to find many students who live on campus to honestly take the school super seriously either. The running joke is that we're what happens with the movie Accepted comes to life. Also, the organization of the administration is a little questionable. In short, Evergreen is a great little school that treats each student as an individual and a success. You'll find great resources to latch onto and even better classes and professors to help you achieve your goal. Just be aware that this school is a breeding ground for hipsters. So if you're not as into that as I am, it might not be the fit for you.
