Learn on Your Terms and Your Schedule at The Evergreen State College

Not every student gets on the path to college directly after high school. In Thurston County, according to the Thurston Regional Planning Council, about 50,000 residents have some college, but no degree, while an additional 20,000 have an associate’s degree and would like to finish their bachelor’s.  If you’re one of those people, that degree could be closer (and cheaper) than you think. At The Evergreen State College’s Evening and Weekend Studies program, faculty and staff work hard to help you succeed all the way to graduation.

No Evergreen Basketball for 2021 Season

Olympia, WA – The Evergreen State College announced November 23 it will not compete in basketball for the 2021 season because of safety concerns related to COVID-19.

“After talking with our coaches, campus COVID-19 leaders, senior leadership, the Cascade Collegiate Conference commissioner, and the other college presidents of conference schools, it’s clear that in the case of our men’s and women’s basketball teams, returning to play now or in January is unrealistic,” said President George Bridges. “Keeping our students and community safe is a top priority."
