Freshman students gain a solid foundation of knowledge and skills in these programs, designed especially to prepare them for advanced studies in a wide range of subject areas. Plus, freshmen have the opportunity to work with a wide mix of students - in age, experience, and stages of learning. Core programs introduce you to Evergreen's interdisciplinary studies approach; you'll learn how to write more effectively, read more carefully, analyze arguments, reason both quantitatively and mathematically, work cooperatively in small groups and use campus resources such as the library. In addition, freshmen can explore all-level programs, which enroll a mix of freshmen through seniors, and some programs for sophomores and above may admit a particularly well-qualified freshman. Academic Advising can assist you if you are interested in one of these more advanced programs. Learn more...
