experience. I am from the east coast and looked
at many colleges. Evergreen by far offered the most
interesting curriculum I could find -surprisingly in a public school
setting vs private school. It feels like a private
school without the pretentious and pricey element.
My course program
made so much more sense than a traditional school where
my friends go-they are sitting in lecture halls with 100-200+
students and their professors have no idea who they are
and who don't care who they are. They are also
taking courses that they have no interest in but are
required to take to get their degree-it seems degrading, like
taking the same useles classes you have to when
you are in high school. There's no way I was
going to do that for another four years. I am
choosing my own major, my own coure of study, etc.
My professors really do care about who I am as
an individual. That may sound hokey but it is true.
It is refreshing to have a professor want to
know what makes you tick. There is a more
diversified group of people than I have seen at other
campuses. It was real easy for me to meet
people I could relate to. It is easy to
speak out in class and let my opinion known-though most
people tend to be liberal minded, I can voice my
middle of the road thoughts without getting hassled.
The other students are all cool, not at all stuck
up and they aren't out to screw you either.
Everyone kind of works together. Great music scene in
and around Olympia. Nice that Seattle and Portland aren't
too far away either. Nothing like waking up to
Mt. Ranier every day. The weather is NOT an
issue. Get over it. The school is not
for everyone. But it is for those who want
something more out of life than they did in high
school or a traditional college. This became real clear
to me when I go back home and visit my
friends at their colleges. Their schools are like an extension
of high school ( I can do that because of
the trimesters). It never feels that way here.
Also the trimester set up makes time fly. My
four years here will be over sooner than I thought.
More schools should teach the way Evergreen does. I couldn't imagine being in another type of learning environment.
