#facesofevergreen: "I don't know what I would be doing if I hadn't come to Evergreen. I'm the first person in my family to go to college; so there really wasn't a lot of structure as to what this experience was supposed to be like. So, I didn't know what it could turn into. But I'm really happy with what it has turned into. Lot of work, though. Always a lot of work." — Joshua Trottier, class of ‘18
#evergreenTacoma students are holding a #mockcourt session today on the subject of #firstamendment rights for employees of the #NFL. They’ve been working towards today all quarter long.
#facesofevergreen: “I’m planning on going into astrophysics or planetary geology. So, it's the study of exothermic planets and things that are outside of our solar system. I've been following gravitational waves and things like that. So, really anything with space is my interest, and the physics of what makes everything tick." — Jamie Terry, class of ‘21

#facesofevergreen: "It wasn't always obvious to me that mathematics was what I wanted to focus in; but as I saw growth, I knew that this was the right direction because I looked forward to coming to class, and was just excited to learn the subject. It's so challenging. There's nothing harder that I've  ever tried to accomplish for myself." — Wu Ibanez, class of ‘18

#facesofevergreen: "I'm working on a group project right now. One of the people in my group is an international student from Japan; so we're going to look at how the Japanese government approaches homelessness, versus how the American government does. One seems to be more successful than the other, so we're going to look at why that is. See if there's any lessons to be learned." -- David Green, MPA program class of '19.
U.S. News & World Report ranked Evergreen number one for innovation AND number one for undergraduate teaching among regional universities in the West.
#facesofevergreen: “Every class I've taken has had an independent creative project, and that has been immensely helpful to me. I wrote a piece fall 2016 in one of my programs and then I submitted it to publication as part of my project, and it got accepted. So, I'm a published writer; and I don't know if I would have been able to do that at another school if I didn't have time to just write.” — Chloe Marina Manchester, class of '18
