Set up the pieces and join us for a game!
Chibi Chibi Con Committee
As a club, our goal is to create a convention that everyone can enjoy, and have fun along the way. We are a con that has sprung up from a previous Evergreen convention. We are smaller, thus chibi, and hope to remain only as large as we can handle.

Cooper Point Journal
Cooper Point Journal organization members commit their efforts to two primary purposes: compiling submissions from students at large to create a newspaper that focuses on and reflects the student citizens of The Evergreen State College and examines how matters, particularly within the college, affect and involve students. The newspaper - also named Cooper Point Journal - serves as a medium for informing and entertaining students and as a forum for the ideas and opinions of students and others. The learning laboratory aspect of the CPJ organization manifests itself by developing and maintaining effective and responsible managing of operations and finances of an endeavor (newspaper) organization, as well as dealing with such life challenges as organizing efforts to develop and maintain an inclusive organization, establishing a group culture of inclusive and responsible decision making, personal and collective accountability, leadership that focuses of fulfilling organization goals and objectives by fostering an environment of consensus and cooperation rather than focusing on the decision-making authority and responsibilities of leadership, confronting injustice and discrimination.
Ev. Astronomical Society

Mondays, 7 - 8 pm | CAB 301

Giant Clam Improv Collective
Giant Clam Improv Collective’s mission is to create a safer, braver space for Greeners to collaborate with one another in the style of improvisation!
Improv is a ritual and experiment that allows us to connect with our sense of play, activate flow states, commit to the moment and liberate our truest potentials. This work is only successful if we support each other, our work is not possible without the collective.
As a collective, we strive to work together to make Giant Clam possible; there are opportunities to pitch in on ideas and leadership if desired, or to just show up occasionally and participate. Our practices make space to meet new people, laugh about ridiculous scenarios, be serious as needed, propose ideas, and create on the spot! Giant Clam is open to all; those who have done theater or improv, those who haven’t, and those who create across all mediums.
Improv is about the process, not the final result, therefore this club focuses on having fun rather than the technicalities of “being good at improv”. If being a part of a fun-loving community of collaborating artists sounds like a good time to you, then Giant Clam Improv Collective is right up your alley!
Giant Robot Appreciation Society (GRAS)
GRAS is one of the longest running student clubs here on campus. Come meet and talk about anime with fellow weebs, and argue about which Miyazaki Film is the best. We hope to make anime easier to understand for Evergreen, as well as make a safe space for nerding out about Evangelion.
Wednesdays, 5 - 7 pm | Student Activities at the Big Wooden Table

Justice Involved Student Group
Evergreen Justice Involved Student Group, working together to build stronger campus communities in Washington state that are equitable to all, regardless of status, race, gender, sex or ability. We advocate and support those marginalized by an unjust, criminal justice system!
Slightly West is Evergreen’s own student-run and published literary journal. As a periodical, we publish student work annually in a collected volume, making space for writers and artists from diverse disciplinary and cultural backgrounds. In our jury process, our goal is to select the best creative writing, personal essays, photography, comics, drawings, sheet music or any black-and-white reproducible art that our inspiring student body has to offer. Once selected, students will be published in our journal with full copyright ownership of their work belonging to them.
Every week we get outside and play casual, low-stakes frisbee. Everyone gets to play with us, whether you’ve played ultimate for years or have never played a sport at all. Our highest priority is having a place for people to exercise and show that you don’t have to be good at something to enjoy it. Come try it out. We’d love to have you!
We are Evergreen's premier student public interest activism group and have been since the early 1980s. We work to protect the environment and public health, fight hunger on campus and in our community, make college more affordable and promote civic engagement.
