If you want to get to know a little more about Evergreen before Orientation and meet new students, faculty and staff of color in a relaxed casual atmosphere, then this informative, two-credit program is for you!

As a new student you probably have a lot of questions about your new environment...

  • Will I know anybody?
  • What will my dorm room be like?
  • What will seminar be like?
  • Will I be able to get a campus job?

"It gave me a real head start. I recommend this program to anyone who is a little apprehensive about moving to a new place with new people. First Peoples' orientation helped me to feel very welcome and comfortable when I first came to Evergreen. Everyone was so personable and caring, I met people who have become some of my best friends." - Miles Miller
