We’re Dubbed “Most For Your Money”

In a summer laden with accolades from the likes of U.S. News & World Report, Outside, and Elle Girl, Evergreen has garnered yet another. It rates among a dozen “Hot Schools for 2004,” according to Newsweek. The college is the magazine’s pick for “most for your money.”

“With states increasingly focusing resources on small liberal-arts colleges in their systems, Evergreen has become a contender for those who might head off to pricey private schools. It has a private school’s size (4,080), curriculum and educational chops,”says authors Mary Carmichael and Karen Springen.

Evergreen President Thomas L. “Les” Purce credits the hard work and dedication of the college’s faculty and staff for the high profile it enjoys. “The people who work here are richly talented. Our focus on being a student-centered enterprise extends throughout our organization. The Evergreen emphasis on teaching and learning really makes the difference.”
