Thank you to all who attended Return to Evergreen over the weekend of November 3-5, 2017!
Return to Evergreen, our premier annual alumni event, gathered Evergreen alumni and friends from every graduating class for a day of fascinating experiences and great people. This year we celebrated 50 years since Evergreen’s founding during this incredible weekend of immersive and interactive events, sessions, workshops, happenings and parties.
Close to 650 people participated in Return to Evergreen events this year!
Featured New Events:
Edmond Lapine ’08 was one of thirty-six people who died in a warehouse fire in Oakland, CA last year. Proceeds funded a scholarship in his name. The night featured Selector Dub Narcotic, Tender Forever, and Alex R. Puckett with DJ Spin’nkre.
A panel of distinguished members of Evergreen Tacoma’s campus – faculty, students and community members – discuss how to serve Tacoma’s diverse community while participants feast in a seminar-style brunch event.
We offered a unique event this year: a venture to the Olympic National Forest to learn with Evergreen faculty, Longhouse staff, and Quinault tribe members about Indigenous communities, public land and climate change. The excursion was completed with a locally-caught salmon lunch.
