Evergreen is a really pleasant idea. Like communism. Works on paper, but people's natural inclination towards laziness takes over. If you're very self motivated, and have a pretty clear academic goal from the get-go (which you won't if you're 18). Otherwise you can just make stuff up on your papers, do interpretive dance in lieu of actual research or analysis, or just fly to south America on your parent's dime and turn in your travel blog for credit. You'll probably get it. That sounds like a ludicrous claim but those are 3 separate examples I know of that happened. And you know what? your professors will never say anything rude about you on your eval, and you can be all gushy about them on theirs, and everyone feels great.

On an administrative level, it's just another bureaucratic state school. you'll run into the same red-tape bull that you would at any other state school.
