There is no building not to be proud of at Puget Sound. Even the fitness center, which has been deemed incapable of catering to the growing number of students, will soon be expanding with a panoramic view of Mount Ranier. Some have called our campus the Harvard of the Northwest with its brick buildings and ever-changing ivy. There have been many recent additions, including the Weyerhaeuser Center for Health Sciences and the beautiful Commencement Walk, which derived its name from walk that graduating students take before Commencement. This path stretches through campus from the Fieldhouse, past Warner Gym, with diverging paths to campus dorms, and continues until it reaches the steps of Collins Memorial Library, where many of us find ourselves well into the wee hours of the night during mid-terms and finals.
Everything on campus is within walking distance, taking only a few minutes to get to the next class. Overall, it takes about 10 minutes to cross campus—that is, if you don't talk to anyone. A few special features of the school include the greenhouse located atop Thompson, the ceramics building, the print-making studio, the KUPS radio station, Oppenheimer Café (made completely of glass in the shape of a rare gem), and the fourth floor of the library, which you will most likely be hearing more about if you decide to attend. The buildings are not only state of the art but incorporate many art installations such as the infamous Chihuly glass structure in Wyatt and the mosaic piece in Harned Hall.
