How did Evergreen prepare you for your professional life?

Evergreen fostered the ability to critically think, analyze, synthesize and make decisions based on a set of criteria. The experience also taught me to be a strong self-evaluator. Finally, Evergreen was just the jumping off point in my education and career; the term life-long learner was introduced during my experience there.
