2 College Freshman

Athletics: We have most of the big sports, however they are all d3. If you're looking for a big sports program this is not the place for you. Sports is not a big part of the social scene nor the social structure.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: The teams at this school that are good do not get enough support (such as the soccer teams), and the teams that are not very good (such as the football team) get the most support, which does not make much sense.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletic facilities need to be renovated and are the next thing to be renovated on campus. There is a lot of school spirit- people are happy to be at UPS and to be a Logger- but less spirit for sports teams. People do attend football games, but it isn't a huge deal. People definitely come here to go to school first and be an athlete second. It's D3 athletics, I think it is whatever you make it.

3 College Junior

Athletics: The athletic facilities could be a lot better than they are right now. There is an expansion plan for our facilities but it certainly will not be done before I graduate. The biggest issue that I have with the facilities is that they aren't large enough to hold both the varsity athletes and the average Joe's! It's very hard to get anything done during a gym visit when there are so many people crammed into three or four small rooms.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: There's not much school spirit. Since we are Division 3, nobody makes a big deal out of football games, etc. like they would at big state schools. Our rec center/gym is pretty dire. There aren't many machines and it's really out of date.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

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
