Return to Evergreen

A Three-day Celebration of Evergreen’s Past, Present and Future

Friday, May 18 – Sunday, May 20

Calling all Greeners and friends! Return to Evergreen is the college’s special 40th anniversary celebration—a chance to reconnect with the Evergreen experience, rekindle old friendships, make memorable new connections and join in the fun. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity will feature accomplished alumni in a variety of fields alongside faculty members past and present. Teams will present seminars, fishbowl seminars and panel discussions around big ideas: innovation, creativity, sustainability, social justice and more. We will tour the Organic Farmdance on Red Square, hold a wine tasting and share good times, good company and much more as we mark a milestone in our history and move into our next exciting chapter.
