Campus Visit Notes for Evergreen State College
The information session really helped me understand the programs at Evergreen and registration for next year. If you're interested in how the credits work, this is helpful. Our campus tour guide... I forgot his name but he was really funny. We toured A dorm( the biggest freshman dorm), the longhouse, the CAB, the library, Photoland(really cool!) and a few classroom buildings. The facilities are kind of old but are being updated but it's what you would expect from a public college. If you've viewed the college from Google maps it seems huge but its not as overwhelming as it seems. The freshman dorms consist of singles and doubles which is really nice if you've ever seen the ridiculous housing at other state schools. If you're not into dorming there are a lot of inexpensive and nice options for living off campus, a lot of students rent houses with groups of people. The class visit I took was awesome it focused on cultural studies and marketing. I really recommend class visits if you're seriously considering Evergreen. my program host was eager to answer any questions I had. The class I visited was small and students seemed genuinely excited for it to start. Based on the students I met, students seemed really academically curious. The professor treated the students with respect and was very friendly.
Hotel/Lodging Recommendations or Comments:
I had never been to Seattle, so I stayed there and drove into Olympia which takes a little over an hour.
