Evergreen State College ‘Office of Spirituality & Meaning Making’ Offers Daily Tarot Card Reading
“Despite plummeting enrollment and budget woes”
Nothing against tarot cards, but is this really the right place? The person who runs this office makes over $50K per year.
The College Fix reports:
Evergreen State College (yes, that one) rolls out daily tarot card reading
Evergreen State College, one of the most “woke” campuses in the nation, continues to live up to its name.
Despite plummeting enrollment and budget woes, the Washington-based college manages to maintain an office called the “Office of Spirituality & Meaning Making.”
The person who runs that office — who makes about $53,000 annually plus benefits — now offers daily tarot card readings on the student activities Instagram page (pictured).
The news was first reported by Benjamin Boyce, an alumnus of Evergreen and one of its most vocal critics, who has made a series of videos about the campus, which does not shy away from its far-left progressive reputation.
It made national headlines in 2017 after it came to light that college leaders had asked white people to stay off campus for a day.
Over the last weekend, Boyce tweeted a copy of an email announcing the tarot readings, noting that “Evergreen State College (whose enrollment has tanked to 50% pre-protest) has hired someone to run a ‘Office of Spirituality & Meaning Making.’ Their job includes a daily Tarot reading.”

I don’t know how further they can degrade my degree—but I’m sure they’ve more up their sleeve. pic.twitter.com/62c7X0r6C7

Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
So, no Bible readings?
Likely not. But, if ESC is like most colleges were in my day, there are plenty of places offering them, or other spiritual refuge. Wesleyans, Newman Centers, etc.
That being said: $50K of tax money for this sort of thing is out of line.
Any whining about budget shortfalls and program cuts should fall on deaf ears after this.
Didn’t know Snake Oil Salesman was a major there.
Good to know.
Wow, I could be the Dean of Meaning? (better: Dean of Mean). But sorry, they put too low a price on meaning at that salary …
The news media like to accuse conservatives of being “anti-science.” The truth is that liberals are actually more likely to question scientific principles when they conflict with their leftist ideals. For example many leftists believe that scientific truth varies according to a person’s identity and culture.
Many also believe that:
GMO foods are evil and dangerous.
Gluten, sugar, preservatives, etc are evil and dangerous.
Foods labeled “organic” and “natural” are more healthful.
Nuclear power is evil and dangerous.
“Chemicals,” pesticides, and plastics are evil and dangerous.
Hydropower is evil and not renewable.
Hurricanes and tornadoes confirm global warming.
There are no differences in races or sexes.
Sexes are not determined by chromosomes, but are merely a social construct.
Men who decide to identify as women don’t have an unfair advantage in sports.
There are many sexes, and they fall on a spectrum from male to female to other.
Evolutionary psychology is evil and wrong.
So Evergreen State’s Office of Tarot Cards is less of a problem than many other leftist beliefs.
“Office of Meaning Making?” Is white Ebonics a thing now?
Webonics. Catchy term.
And they, like most companies nowadays, will let their donors/customers/alumni/patrons know that the declines in enrollment/revenue are due to COVID. ¯_(ツ)_/¯
…and then continue to run their organization into the ground until they can apply for their bailout. If no bailout, ah well, at least they were righteous progressives.
