2 College Freshman

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Not that many people go to sporting events.

College Freshman

Athletics: I don't tend to follow the athletics at school. I know our teams all do really well (with the exception of football).

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: The only sport that gets any attention is our crappy football team. The gym on campus is small, overcrowded, and not very clean. I rarely workout in there and usually avoid it in general. Another big downfall of on-campus life.

A large percentage of the University’s population is involved in some kind of sport, whether it's varsity, club, or intramural. There are also physical education classes, such as advanced conditioning, aerobics, yoga, dance, and speed walking. A recent addition to varsity athletics has been the Logger Nation Fan Club that works to bring students together to support one another in athletic endeavors. Logger Nation promotes participation and awareness of varsity athletics. Perhaps in the future its borders will broaden to other recreational sports teams as well.

The University believes that participating in athletics is part of the educational experience of becoming a well-rounded student. The coaches for the most part are extremely talented and aim to teach athletes much more than just skills for the game. They work to teach lifelong lessons of community, bonding, and understanding. Education always comes first in athletics, as coaches realize how rigorous courses are and do their best to work with schedule conflicts. On the reverse, most teachers are very accepting and supportive of varsity sports and will not contest to leaving early or missing class for games.

School Spirit
While students here may not be bustling with school spirit in the form of athletic cheers and clothing, people are very proud of University of Puget Sound. Almost everybody has a high degree of respect for the institution overall, but real appreciation and loyalty is seen within departments, teams, and other clubs or social groups.
Getting Tickets
Most sporting events do not require tickets. When they do, they can be purchased at the gate.
Best Place to Take a Walk
