Here’s what Evergreen State College is doing to boost its reputation and enrollment

Evergreen State College’s graduation is held in Red Square on the campus Friday, June 15, 2018.  The college is anticipating a big drop in enrollment this fall, the delayed result of last year’s protests on campus. Classes are over for the year, but Evergreen has an exuberant and unorthodox graduation ceremony where students don’t have to wear caps and gowns.

The Evergreen State College says it is being more aggressive in marketing, alumni relations and outreach to lawmakers, a spokeswoman said.
