Thanks to all the offices and individuals who helped make our commencement activities happen. The transformation of the campus embodies the work of many. Along with new student orientation, graduation is one of the “bookends” of the student experience at Evergreen and probably the most likely to be remembered. It remains a real team effort, resulting in a terrific celebration for our graduates, their family and friends and the entire campus.

Sometimes we’re very successful doing these things, and sometimes we’re not. I imagine all of us in Student Affairs can relate to the highs and lows that come with our daily work.

Managing narrative academic records for posting credit and processing official transcripts isn’t easy with over 60,000 files at an average 50 pages each file. It just got easier as of last April when the final paper evaluation was scanned ending 40 years of managing paper academic records. It all began five years ago when Registration and Records staff began imaging all active students’ files with the goal of a more paperless process. Read the rest of this entry »

In 2010-11 some basic building blocks were established in key areas including operations plans, student employment, program offerings, and implementation of an advisory board. The 2010 Student Voice Survey indicated mind/body offerings, outdoor pursuits and a ropes course were significant areas of interest for expansion. Yoga, Tai Chi and Stretch/De-stress classes have become our core course offerings as a result. The outdoor pursuit demand has been responded to in the rebuilding of The Outdoor Program.
