Dear Evergreen Community,

Acts of violence and hatred such as the murder of Jewish worshippers at a Pittsburgh synagogue last Saturday, the murder of two black victims at a grocery store in Kentucky last Wednesday and the lethal pipe bombs sent to 14 prominent democrats over the last week have left our country reeling.

Return to Evergreen--Friends and Family Weekend

Check back in early 2019 for the dates of our next annual Return to Evergreen event. 

MPA Women Making Waves at Return to Evergreen

Return to Evergreen Women Making Waves

I recently attended Return to Evergreen on October 20 - 21, a weekend event where alumni, current students, and community members gathered for a variety of workshops, talks and social activities. As a part of this event, the Women Making Waves panel included two graduates from the Master of Public Administration program, including panel organizer and moderator Diana Arens (‘93, MPA ‘15), and Malika Lamont (‘15). As a current MPA student, it was fascinating to hear about current work of program graduates.

Let's Keep This Short

Fostering a community that appreciates film and gives aspiring filmmakers the opportunity to bring their creative visions to life.

India: Dance and Culture

This club focuses on the history and dance culture of Odissi! Odissi is one of the oldest dance forms in the world, dating back over 2000 years. This dance and its history used to be taught at Evergreen until Spring 2017 when it was cut by the administration, but the students from the program are still passionate about continuing to learn its history. Along with Odissi, this club will reflect on the culture of India including history, religion, literature, films, music, languages (Hindi, Sanskrit,) and the importance of teaching and preserving history.

Sailing Club

The Evergreen Sailing Club is focused on maritime education. Any Evergreen State College community member interested in learning sailing basics, maritime history, and cruising techniques are eligible for instruction on Pleiades, a 59 foot tradition gaff-rigged schooner.

The Evolution of a Thesis Topic

Ah, the master’s thesis. When I first began the Graduate Program on the Environment, I met fellow students in my cohort who already knew exactly what they wanted to research for their thesis. Some had worked in a certain field for a while and developed a research question that way. Others were passionate about a specific subject and knew their thesis would focus on one aspect of that. They talked of collecting data “in the field” and doing lab work. Of harmful algal blooms and mycorrhizal fungi. Not my thing. But that’s the beauty of the MES degree.
