The Evergreen State College in Olympia is among nearly 300 schools featured in the Fiske Guide to Colleges 2015.

Compiled by New York Times education editor Edward B. Fiske, the publication is a resource for college-bound students and their families.

Evergreen was one of four Puget Sound area colleges featured in the guide. The others were the University of Puget Sound, Seattle University and the University of Washington.

“There’s no mistaking Evergreen for a typical public college,” the guide states. “Never mind the way-out garb favored by its students; Evergreen’s interdisciplinary, team-taught curriculum is unique.”
