4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I've loved almost all of my professors, some need to retire.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: At least one organization is there every week tabling for a hiring organizations, Take a Logger to Work Day annually.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Students don't always take safety measures seriously, but the administration seems to. I've only heard of two sexual assaults, one of which happened before I arrived on campus, but I have heard of students stepping in tot prevent assaults.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: TP was great, super social, right in the middle of campus.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Joining a sorority was one of the best decisions I've made. Greek housing is generally pretty nice and the same price as the dorms, and dues aren't exorbitant. Overall, a great group of pretty involved/intelligent students.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Soccer, track, cross-country, volleyball, and basketball are all good, and football and basketball get the most student support.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: People have a lot of pride in being a Logger, the campus is beautiful, and the professors are awesome.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The campus is generally pretty safe. There are rarely any crimes that occur on or around campus, and the campus police is really great.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Campus housing are mixed. While it depends on which dorm the student lives in, most are renovated and have a great student atmosphere, others are somewhat rundown and have a negative vibe towards it from the students. The cost is average, though does require a meal plan purchase.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life also plays a key role in our university system. The atmosphere around Greek life is mostly positive, and most set standards on their involvement and other activities with the university.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletics department on campus does have a large involvement in the university. There is definitely a lot of school spirit and student involvement.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The University of Puget Sound is overall a great place to attend school. The outdoor vibe of the university makes it unique. Greenery is everywhere. Diverse students also make up the population of the university, with a plethora of extra-curricualrs and clubs for students to join and participate in. The professors are very approachable with the student's well-being and understanding of the topics being their top priority. Classes are small so there is a lot of one-on-one time with the professor. The neighborhood surrounding the university is also very good with everything mostly in walking distance and a lot of activities to be done in the area. If given the chance to do it all over, I would choose this school again without any doubts.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I've enjoyed the small class sizes and the learning shared among classmates.

3 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: There is an escort service on campus, as well as direct lines to security placed strategically around campus. Situations posing a threat to students is sent via text and/or e-mail.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Most graduates of my program find jobs within a year of graduating. The required internship, however, is difficult to find without a lot of school support.

Athletics: There are a lot of areas around campus to participate in even casual games of baseball and frisbee. I'll frequently see sports games played on the green as I walk to classes on nice days.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: As a small graduate program, one gets to know classmates and professors well, and they are a great resource. I chose this school because of the opportunity to get dual certified as a school and mental health counselor. I've mostly been pleased, but finding an internship has been challenging; staffing is too limited to provide much assistance in this arena.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So good relly fun yay huzzah loving it and life goal !!

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have been to a few talks on what to do in possible bad situations. The school offers a Green Dot education program, which has been helpful and is talked about frequently. I feel relatively safe on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have really found my passion and hopefully it will lead me to where I want to go in life. I would not have been able to do that without the professors that I have had the opportunity to work with. I also learn better in smaller class sizes. University of Puget Sound has been a great growing experience for me.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I think that getting a degree University of Puget sound has a certain level of respect that will be recognized by jobs in the future. This school is hard and there is a lot of work.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

There are days when it will be raining and you will have piles of homework and a to-do list the length of shopping receipt, and you will ask yourself how you got tricked into attending this school. But then there will be moments when you will have a completely unique experience that will make up for all the dreary days put together. You may find yourself on Orcas Island with the sailing team or shaking your hips during the school-wide luau or snowshoeing on Mount Ranier or watching street performers at Pike Place or volunteering at Project Homeless Connect. You may find yourself talking to a local entrepreneur or handpicking blueberries or riding the ferry to the Tipi camp on Vashon Island, and that is when you will know that you made the right choice.

Sometimes students wonder what it would be like to attend a larger state school, but the community that comes with a smaller population is irreplaceable. Because one interacts with their fellow classmates in all walks of life, from the classroom to the dance studio or football field, an intimacy results that would otherwise be less likely at a larger school. Such intimacy is promoted through the classroom as well, with class sizes ranging from 8 (in the upper levels) to 30 (at the largest). With this comes a great opportunity for networking. This may also help explain the overall respect and friendliness students have toward one another, realizing that fellow peers may have a shared interest or important contact. On a similar note, what is starkly different from high school is the lack of hierarchies and drama. Students respect one another and are friendly regardless of any characteristic differences. There aren’t really popular groups, as students tend to have a wide variety of friends rather than a small clique of friends.
