How did Evergreen prepare you for your professional life

The Collaborative Arts Consortium with Sid White and others provided an understanding of visual design as a means of communication, especially the functionality of word and image working together. The computer lab gave me skills and confidence in computer technology (no small thing these days). The general atmosphere of idealism, the emphasis on integrating ethics in all we do, and the power of sharing ideas and working collaboratively are deeply embedded in my life.
