After University of Puget Sound
- Very Good260
Puget Sound is very academically rigorous. In general, many of the tenured faculty are very knowledgeable, and there are multiple forms of tutoring available both in the Center for Writing Learning and Teaching and in department buildings. Socially speaking, there are a large number of clubs that encourage drop-in participation. Unfortunately, the campus isn't very inviting after orientation; if you are used to saying hi to people on the street, you won't find it here. The parties also aren't very good.

Beautiful campus with great studying resources such as the CWLT (free tutoring) and the library. Lots of fun clubs to join. Great one on ones with professors. A lot of rain and typically cold throughout the year. The food has so much variety, much more than other schools. There is an allergy free section that will cook meals special for your own needs. Overall, I think the school is well balanced and a great place to be.

This school is full of upper middle class Caucasian students that feel they're entitled and don't care about any social issues that don't revolve around their own personal demographic. This school manifests privileged students, gives them an average but very expensive education and then sends them out into the world unaware about social issues and the skill to think critically in order to solve world problems. Based on the schools website they're really good at promoting diversity and acceptance and its false. As a student of color and a member of the lgbtq community I felt like an outcast. Having acceptance towards people that are different and having tolerance are two different things. Just keep that in mind.
