Evergreen helped prepare me for my professional life in the following way

I owe just about everything to my Evergreen experience.  Evergreen was where I first touched a computer in 1982.  Evergreen was where I started my first business (Wilderness Paddling School). 

The collaborative environment and focus on original thought was the perfect preparation for a world that has moved from a hierarchal approach to the flat, fast, collaborative world we have become.

People don’t appreciate how powerful simple things like calling a professor by her first name is in creating a mindset that all ideas are valued and everyone can make a contribution.
