Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

The Evergreen State College is unique because they don't give out grades. Instead they do evaluations about your work in each program. Also, there isn't individual classes. There are programs that study a few different subjects but is all combined into one.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would tell myself that even though Evergreen is different from all other colleges, I still need to make sure to do all my homework and go to class on time. I also would tell myself to try and work hard at making friends because even though it isn't easy for me and I would rather not do it, I will have a better time at college if I do.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

There isn't anything that I wish I had known before I came to Evergreen. I researched the school and talked to a few people, and decided that it was the best fit for me.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would tell myself to calm down and to be less materialistic. You don't need to have so many clothes, and you shouldn't own anything you don't absolutely love or need. People are more down to earth in Washington, in a few months you won't even be wearing make-up! So slow down, take some long walks and explore your interests, instead of worrying about your social life at home.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

That I can be as weird as I want, the weirder the better!

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who is conservative or who likes to do things by the books, or who gets annoyed by people who don't like to do things traditionally (or gets annoyed by the hippie type). Also someone who likes to party a LOT wouldn't find any frat type parties here. People who have an aversion to marijuana.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Decide on you major sooner and accept financial aid. Don't waste so much time working and moving and transfering community colleges. Also, break up with your boyfriend he doesn't want you to succeed in school and will make getting your education difficult.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

Too much of an emphasis in useless knowledge and theory. I want more real life knowledge when it comes to business.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The advice that I would give myself would be that my ambission in my life as well as the overall attutide that I have will strongly determine what will happen in school. If I make no attempt to pass, then chances are that I will not. However, if I take the time to go to class, be on time, turn in assignments and be motivated to do the things which I need to do to complete the class then I will be able to pass with flying colors. I know that now, as I sit among those who do not want to be there in class or do anything the teachers say that it is up to them the outcome of their grades no one elses. I have the determination now that I did not have then and only through a life of hard learning in these last few years was I able to see that.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would simply tell myself to slow down and look at the big picture and get involved more. My senior year was extremely difficult for me because I missed a few weeks of school due my Diabetes and it was a struggle to pass and graduate. I believe my biggest downfall was that I did not spend as much time as I should have on reaching out to get scholarships and financial aid because if I got accepted to JMU I was going to get a scholarship to be the manager for their football team, but because of my absence my grades suffered as a result and did not get in. So once I graduated I started taking classes at the community college and just was able to get the money to pay for that because I only work part time as a waitress and my parents have their own expenses and my medical expenses they are not able to help me right now. Although it has been really hard it will be rewarding knowing I was able to graduate because of me and my efforts to get me there and it not just handed to me.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

A community that places a high focus on acceptance of race, religion, politics, and culture while striving to remain cultrally and evnviromentlly sustainable.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

You are very interested in History, continue to take American history in College because Evergreen will also cover the culture and philosopical norms of the time period the history course covers. You will leave feeling very educated on the politics, films, literature, and cultral norms of the place and time period you are studying. Also it is in your best interest to participate in student government, it is the best way to learn about the procedures of joining clubs, theater, or creating clubs on and off campus.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Liberal art and science students who are interested in sustainability, as well as those who want to create sustainable and moral businesses should consider Evergreen State College.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I had the chance to go back and talk to myself as a high school senior, I would wind up looking at myself and telling me that I should have had more faith in myself and explored my options. Not to just think that oh well I'm not gonna be able to afford anything other than community college. I could at least apply to a few different schools and seen what they have to offer, because I am smart enough and I deserve a great education.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

Pretty much everything about my school is unique compared to my other choices. The curriculum is largely interdisciplinary and allows students a considerable degree of independence in their studies. These features, along with the college's reputation have drawn a far more interesting student body than your avergae run-of-the-mill school.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Okay, if this is the criterion on which this scholarship is based, I doubt I stand a chance. In truth, the advice I would give myself as a high school senior is far too personal to submit here. So here goes nothing.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

I'd have to say that the most frustrating thing about my school is the inefficient and ineffective registration system.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Go somewhere, make the right choice to invest time, energy, and money where you're genuinely valued and wanted. Get state residency. Travel more and do more internships.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The tuition is steadily increasing, I hear rumour of budget cuts further escalating and talk of Evergreen becoming privatized which is really disturbing in thought to me, since it's such an accessible, eco-friendly, sociopolitical liberal place where many visionary thinkers begin networking and creating their own projects... privatized, really? I'm also afraid of the liberal arts, expressive arts as well being further pared down... Overall, I want Evergreen to maintain the integrity of student-teacher collaboration, utilizing and emphasizing student voice and responsibility with narrative evaluations and freedom in pursuing Independent Learning Contracts and Internships....

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would tell myself to stick to my studies and do well in my classes. When I got out of high school, I did not want to go straight to college and I didn't do well in my classes because I didn't apply myself. If I could redo it all over I would stick to it and do things right.
