STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

I LOVE THE LEARNING ATMOSPHERE.

I was interested in the Interdisciplinary class approach that evergreen took. It was also out in the state I was from and close to my family. They have a multicultural counseling program that I found interesting as well.


Course Curriculum - 

I absolutely loved how interdisciplinary classes work. They were able to relate the different subject matters to each other and create actual links between skills. I thought this helped a lot with our learn and understanding.
