    I think the big thing for me was trying to figure out what kind of school I needed. Big school, small school, medium sized school in a traditional or nontraditional setting. University of Puget sound is a small school with a traditional setting. I would recommend a lot of research on these categories. Either way the college application process is hard and sometimes you just have to follow your gut instinct.

    Would not recommend coming here unless you don't get in anywhere else. Not much to do. Very hard to get around unless you have a car.

    Find what you love, and plan to do it here. Even if it doesn't exist here yet, Puget Sound is very accommodating for those who want to start initiatives. The Admissions Department wants to see your passion, but be sure it's something you really love, because you'll want to take advantage of the accessibility to what you love here on campus!

    While The University of Puget Sound is a wonderful place to be, the small school experience isn't for everyone. Make sure to visit to test out the atmosphere and meet a few professors before making your decision.
