The school tries to use as less paper as possible, so having a computer is very important for homework, but as far as for the classroom, not that important.

They only have a few varsity sports and only offered one that I played in high school. The gym is nice and big with decent equipment, and free to use if you're attending a class

They're not very strict on things. They may claim to be against underage drinking and illegal drug use, but they don't enforce them. They don't enforce visitation either, so that's awesome.

Health & Safety:
I never had to go to the health center, so I'm not sure about that place. The campus police are stationed close so I feel safe. The students don't like the police because of who knows what reason but I appreciate them and their station offers free food!

There's not a lot of racial diversity, most of the students are white with most of them are women. Most are vegans, little have religion and they celebrate acceptance and freedom of sexual orientation. Most are liberal or Progressive. It seems that a lot of people are on their parents dime and have no financial worries

They have stuff for them, but only one teacher for animation, therefore only one course of animation a quarter. I learned a lot in my first set of classes, then I found out that they don't teach you more in later classes, just expect you to do better. And they don't offer any internships for this
College Senior 2013-11-12T19:22:37Z
They have lots of interesting studies, professors and you can create your own classes in a sense. Workload is reasonable and fits well in the amount of credits you take. It's easier to manage the work since you're essentially taking one class. Animation is popular since the creators of The Simpsons went to this school

Cost for parking is fairly good. Spots fill up quickly, but there's a lot of space to park. The poor part is that it's like Disney parking, you could end up walking half a mile just to get to your class room. Fines are ridiculous, they'll fine you on just about anything. I've been fined because of an "expired day permit" however they forgot to change the times on the machines that feed them for daylight savings. My friend kept getting fined for "not having a parking permit", but he had a year pass on his windshield.

There's no program with this school, no pre reqs so you can jump right into a class that's geared towards your career. The school has a high acceptance rate but also a high drop out. Most important criteria for admission would probably make sure when you submit your letter, that it has been proof read.
College Senior 2013-11-12T18:57:50Z
They don't have many, if any at all. They have local job postings but typically none in my career focus. With external internships, you still have to pay the full tuition price, including any fees that goes to paying for a new building or activities, even though you yourself are not going to be on campus to utilize them. The process for setting up the forms to get credits from an internship is a long and painful process and almost not worth doing at all

This is a non traditional school. Classes are set up to combine topics into one course. So in a 16 credit course, the class would cover 4 credits in science, 4 credits in art, 4 in writing and 4 in some other. The course would have an overall theme or theory that you'll study and work around. And instead of have 4 classes and 4 different teachers, you now have 1 class and 2-3 teachers for the whole week. Nice set up, however, each course is unique and only happens once. So for me who wants to study animation and sees only one class offering this study, it'll be hard to get into because everyone else wants it as well. And when the class is full before my registration date, I'm SOL. I can't afford to take other courses that don't even come close to my career goals and this one course I want will not show up again ever. There is no prioritizing classes for those of that chosen career studies. On top of all that, the staff is partly the student body, who are mostly lazy pot smokers and seem to push responsibility to the side. The other staff are no better, website is confusing to the point they made their own blog just to help navigate it. In the class room, you have to be careful with what you say, if you say you disagree with someone, it could turn into a hate crime. The students may claim Coexistence, but if you have religion, especially if you're Christian or Jewish, then they automatically hate you. One Jewish student left the school because she was discriminated against, and another student was verbally accused of raping a girl (no police chargers were ever filed against this guy) and a group of students nearly lynched the guy for it. It's like going to school with a bunch spoiled 5 year olds who don't bathe

If you're vegan or vegetarian, there are lots of options for you. If you love meat or need that protein in your diet (like me), you have little choices. That being said, all the food they serve is poor in taste and are overpriced. The meal plans are bad as well. As a freshman, you are required to get one, they give you a certain amount of meals to use for the quarter. The amount they give is horrible, if you were to have two meals a day on this plan, you'll run out before the end of the quarter. Not very good if you don't have a job or parents backing you up.
College Senior 2013-11-12T18:24:11Z
there's food for everone's taste. plenty of vegan friendly options and plenty of fast food restaurants.

The people here are nicer to strangers than I'm used to.

This isn't a small town in the midwest (the worst) but it IS a small city in the northwest.
College Sophomore 2013-11-11T02:51:01Z
The class sizes can be small. the teachers are all unique and smart. The campus is beautiful and serene
College Sophomore 2013-11-11T02:49:59Z
It's rainy A LOT so that's kinda depressing. I went to the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis though so I'm grateful there's no snow.

Evergreen has a wide demographic of students. A lot of the younger students tend to drink, do drugs and party more, but I think that is pretty common. Each freshman class is different than the last, and they are the only ones who live on campus.
College Sophomore 2013-11-10T03:13:59Z
frats a sororities are against campus policy... and rightfully so most people on campus are in favor of this policy
College Sophomore 2013-11-10T03:12:18Z
I study political economy. This school is amazing for politics but it tends to be so far left that it won't even hear out the other side of debates which hurts in so many ways. The sciences are also very good here
College Sophomore 2013-11-10T03:12:17Z
School doesn't help with attaining internships except for ones with the state legislator but if you can attain a internship anywhere they would accept it. I will be TAing for one of my old proffessors next year for instance but it is because I pursued him for the opportunity
College Sophomore 2013-11-10T03:08:55Z
One of the best campuses when it comes down to letting their students doing what they want without much hassle.
College Sophomore 2013-11-10T03:07:56Z
It just rains here constantly and I really mean constantly
College Sophomore 2013-11-10T03:07:19Z
What student center? Everything else here is great, especially student activities.
College Sophomore 2013-11-10T03:05:33Z
Great diversity except almost 0 international students
Sorry, there are no reviews.
