In my Freshman year I learned the hard way that High School study habits don't make the cut here and I am better for it. UPS makes you work hard for what you want to achieve, but the professors also know how to make it interesting. I was worried that college courses would be straight lecture then hours upon hours of studying later, but here it is a very cooperative learning process. There is a lot of class discussion and plenty of office hours to further talk things over with your professor. I never thought I'd be able to learn...

    Small liberal arts college, but most students major in sciences rather than in humanities. People do their own thing. Campus is small but people are very into themselves.

    Puget Sound aims to make you a well-rounded citizen. Professors all know the purpose of liberal arts studies is to achieve this. Students can and do manage to do a little bit of everything.

    The atmosphere at the University of Puget Sound is supportive and close knit. Because of the small size of the University, the professors are able to take time with each student to personalize each student's education based on his or her academic needs. The University of Puget Sound is a wonderful place to build lasting connections with other students, and establish a strong academic background.

    University of Puget Sound has a beautiful campus. It may be expensive but if you are looking for a place where you can talk to your professors one on one, this is it. The community is not very diverse but it is welcoming to everyone.

    The academic atmosphere at this school is amazing. The teachers really care about their students, and take interest in how their student are progressing in the class. One thing is that it is mentally challenging, but the benefits are extremely rewarding.

    The University of Puget Sound is a small homey campus, that gives you a sense of community and family, and works hands on with its students to make sure they thrive in their field of education. It is an open minded and accepting environment that is surrounded by lush green forest and is one of the best small liberal arts colleges out there. The University of Puget Sound is one of the top colleges that changes lives, according to author Loren Pope of Colleges That Change Lives: 40 Schools That Will Change the Way You Think About Colleges. http://www.pugetsound.edu/about/

    Puget Sound has been a wonderful experience for me as a student. I've learned much in the field of Computer Science and the campus is small enough that you have no excuse to be late to any class. The multiple programs offer make it easy to get into at least one program.
