Fall 2019 New Student Orientation

Orientation Week kicks off with Welcome Day where you’ll move-in and spruce up your new home for the academic year.

At Evergreen, small is really, really big

Commencement is among the most energizing and happiest moments in an academic year. We celebrate our students’ years of challenging work and significant accomplishments.

This year was especially wonderful. Greeted by faculty as they marched to their seats, the view of students from the stage was inspiring. There were smiling faces, laughter, and an abundant desire to enjoy every moment of the ceremony. For many, commencement represented the culmination of their formal academic training. For all, it represented the beginning of a new chapter in their lives.
