The University of Puget Sound is a private liberal arts institution founded in 1888 and situated in Tacoma, Washington. It is affiliated with the United Methodist Church and many students from Puget Sound choose to participate in the Peace Corps after graduation. UPS offers multiple study abroad programs in places such as New Zealand, Wales, Costa Rica, and Denmark. Top fields of study include psychology, biology, and business administration and management.
Puget Sound is a friendly environment where everyone seems to know each other. Students there are helpful and want to see one another succeed in their personal area of study. The campus itself is beautiful and promotes learning at the highest level.

the campus is small but beautiful, the classes and professors are (mostly) fantastic, and the food is healthful and largely sustainable. it may get old by the end of your first year, but compared to most other schools, the food here is gourmet--especially if you're vegetarian or vegan. there are great study abroad programs, the dorms are pretty nice and spacious, and there are tons of opportunities for fun things like hiking, sailing, and watching some of the interesting and amusing performances the students put on.
