How Did Evergreen Help You in Your Career?
The MIT course was a demanding educational challenge that pushed my thinking in new directions and made me more reflective. I learned that I had much to learn and in so doing I opened the door to new ways of seeing and ultimately to the exciting world of daily discovery. I've taken that approach into the classroom and it continually inspires me to stay current and flexible. An Evergreen education teaches autonomy while simultaneously supporting the spirit of the quest and the good old fashioned work ethic that built this country. I am a Greener and proud of it!
