Return to Evergreen Draws Hundreds to Campus

Nearly 300 alumni, students, faculty, staff and community members dove into academic topics ranging from Zombie-Based Learning: Teaching through the Apocalypse, to Fun with Haiku, they also took tours of the Organic Farm and Longhouse, and had a chance to connect with old and new friends at this year’s Return to Evergreen event October 19. Many stayed on for an evening beer garden and concert with seven bands, most including alumni members.

Also featured were alumni basketball games (against this year’s teams), a dedication of the recently renamed Costantino Recreation Center, and a range of other activities. Check out the photos and keep your eye out for future opportunities to Return to Evergreen.
