Evergreen named “Best Buy” college for 2019

Evergreen is Fiske 2019 Best Buy College

The 2019 Fiske Guide to Colleges recently named Evergreen a “best buy” for the upcoming year. It was one of just 19 schools designated as such.

In the guide, Fiske highlights some of the unique aspects of Evergreen that make it such a special place. “Evergreen remains one of the best choices for students who see traditional academic structures as too restrictive,” it states. “Freed from requirements and grades, Greeners delight in exploring the connections between disparate disciplines at their own pace.”

Analyzing the readings will provoke critical thinking skills and thoughtful articulation of our findings. Individual writing projects will highlight your skills as a writer, as will peer workshops.

This course explores the relationship between historical narratives, our own histories, and how cartography (mapping) can be an integral element to telling a story.  With a focus on writing, cartography, and indigenous culture in North America, students will create a mapped story generated from their own life, a period in history, a place, or an event of their choosing. It is intended to create discourse around the indigenous memoir and braided-essay as historical narrative in relationship to self, community, culture, and worldview.
