    This question is honestly comical. Yeah you can make appointments with advisors and yeah the student to teacher ratio is 11:1, but at the end of the day this school costs SO much. Our 100 million + endowment goes to some scholarships, but also goes to our APPEARANCE. We just built an 18 million dollar new gym, but can barely get ourselves together to create a new Student Diversity Center (the only reason this happened was because students really really pressured the school to do it, and because they did all the work to make it happen). Your aid doesn't transfer when you go abroad (or only what you can afford according to FAFSA), so a lot of students can't study abroad because of that. On campus housing is really expensive, and they make you do that for two years. Also important to note is just how inaccessible a lot of our resources are to POC. So yeah, 0/5 stars if possible.

    This place is expensive. Try to get scholarships and financial aid. I think it is worth it though.

    They give out scholarships to everyone. Makes a very expensive school somewhat less expensive.

    Puget Sound gives generous scholarships for both academic and needs-based criteria. Students worried about finances can easily get answers they need from admissions, and Puget Sound tried to make it work. We have work-study programs for needs-based students and other on campus jobs for both needs-based and non-needs-based students to make some cash.

    I believe that although The University of Puget Sound is a little more costly than some other schools, I will graduate with a quality education and various connections that will serve me well later in life.
