The University of Puget Sound is a small liberal arts college in Tacoma, Washington. It features many different classes on a beautiful campus in North Tacoma, close to the waterfront.
Tips for prospective students
Even though UPS is a small school, with a little effort you can participate in many great clubs and activities throughout the year.
Academic Rigor
Because UPS is a liberal arts school, they really try to help you find what you are passionate about. As a freshman you get both an professor academic adviser and a student academic adviser. There are many different classes and in general the professors are engaging and care about your success.
Dorm Life
Living on campus is a requirement for the first two years at UPS. The dorms are generally well kept. The policy for living on campus is a good one, as it is at the dorms where you really start to meet people and make connections you may not have in class.
Food and Dining
There are two places on campus that serve food. There is the sub and the cellar. Both are located in the student union building. The sub is the cafeteria and can get a little redundant but you can always find something. The cellar is the campus pizza place and has many items on the menu. There is also a small student store where you can get small groceries. In addition, there are three cafes on campus.
What to do for fun
You can explore Tacoma. UPS is very close to the waterfront and Ruston. In addition point defiance park is a 10 minute drive away. Seattle is about 45 minutes by car or you could take a bus, which will take longer but the school does provide orca cards so you can take public transportation for free.
Bang for the buck
UPS is an extremely expensive school, but they do offer decent scholarships if you have good grades. Overall, the education is very good. Within the first year I learned a lot in class, and found ways to connect what I learned in the classroom with current events in the world.

Great for these types of students
Students who are willing to learn in and out of the classroom
Clubs and Activities
There are many clubs on campus and if there isn't one you are interested in you could start one.
Campus Safety
There is campus security and they are always there for you. They are generally very good at keeping you updated with anything that may occur on campus

Tips for prospective students
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.
Academic Rigor
For me the academic rigor is a 5 on a scale of 1-10. It isn't too challenging but it isn't too easy. You are kept on your toes, but you aren't completely beat down with work. Also, it really depends on who you are as a learner and what classes you take and how many.
Dorm Life
I am very unhappy with my living situation, but my it is a very unusual situation. I prefer not to elaborate. I will say I have heard from a few other students that the system for freshman placement in dorms is messed up big time. Though I have seen a lot of freshman with different living situations than mine, happy. I think most of the complaints are surprisingly coming from people (upperclassmen too) living in suites (Commencement or Trimble). I have heard they are very isolating.
Food and Dining
I was pleasantly surprised with the food and dining services. There is a good amount of options if you go at the right time of day. Though I have heard vegans complain about a lack of options. I have a food allergy myself that makes navigation very difficult in the cafeteria. I would recommend bringing documentation from your doctor if you have dietary restrictions. That way you can receive an accommodation to make eating easier.
You can use your meal plan to get food at the pizza place and snack store (The Cellar), the two cafe's (Oppenheimer and Diversions), and the SUB (cafeteria). As a late night person, it is nearly impossible to buy food after 12 unless you go off campus. That has been rough.
What to do for fun
There is a lot to do for fun. You can go on trips with Puget Sound Outdoors, you can go to point defiance for a hike, you can go shopping in Tacoma, take a trip to Seattle, and a lot of events and such on campus. There are a lot of things to do off campus, but it takes a bit of planning and effort to do them. I think that is good because it helps you stay focused on school work. I'd say that I am not bored out of my mind, but I am also not overwhelmed with options of things to do.
Bang for the buck
This place is expensive. Try to get scholarships and financial aid. I think it is worth it though.
Great for these types of students
I think a lot of people can make this college work for them, you just have to figure it out. Freshman year anywhere is about figuring it out. Just know that this campus is not very diverse yet so it could be difficult if that is disagreeable to you. It was for me at first, but I figured it out and found my people.
Clubs and Activities
A lot of clubs! You get to sign up for them in the beginning of the fall semester at Log Jam! There are also many activities on campus, you can ask to be on certain email lists to receive different event calenders. I am not bored.
Greek Life
It exists, but I don't know much about it. I wouldn't say its a good thing or a bad thing to me. It is good for a lot of people, I have heard it is a lot of work though.
Campus Safety
The security on campus is great. They are there when you need them but they also don't get in your business.

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.
Tips for prospective students
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!
Academic Rigor
My first semester was really easy, coming from a highly rigorous senior year of high school. My science and math classes had such good teachers that once I got the knowledge, I had it. My second semester, though, my English, seminar, International Political Economy, and language classes are really challenging me to work hard and grow. They're all fascinating and have extremely dynamic professors!
Dorm Life
The RAs are incredible here. Any issues that arise, they deal with extremely well. Additionally, in the larger res halls, rooms are HUGE. I'm talkin' bigger than my room at home.
Food and Dining
We have four options for food and drinks: the Diner, where we have typical cafeteria style service (with lots of delicious options), the Cellar, a pizzeria and snack shop, Oppenheimer, our glass-walled coffeeshop and lunch spot, and Diversions, our main coffee shop. All really good.
What to do for fun
The clubs here are all really well-rounded and open to both beginners and people passionate about the subject. We have yoga club, ceramics club, nerdfighters club, beekeeping club, academic clubs, Greek life, social justice clubs, Queer and Allies club, literary magezines, theatre, a capella, and more. Our student government hosts movie nights for $1, and often show movies newly out on DVD. Events are constantly happening, be they presentations, speeches, concerts, or even professional chef's demonstrations.
Bang for the buck
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.
Campus Safety
Security here is very quick to respond and very approachable. Though the campus tends to be safe even at night, security patrols throughout evening to ensure everything stays calm.

Am learning a lot
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 so much so quickly.
Am enjoying being here
The campus and student body are small at UPS and this allows for a close knit community and almost family atmosphere. I personally love everything about this campus and the friendly disposition that everyone seems to have. I always feel welcomed and at home when on campus, something I feel is very important to the college experience. I'm entering my Junior year and I have no desire to go anywhere else.
Bang for the buck
Expensive. Yes tuition here is incredibly high, but I feel that it is worth every single penny. I receive a very solid education from the professors I pay so much for. The tuition also allows for free tutors in every possible subject and more available office hours than you know what to do with. It is a great comfort to know that the help is always there if you need it (even at 11pm the night before a project is due). While it does become a bit stressful figuring out how to make ends meet right now, I know that now and in the future I will be thankful for this top notch education.
Tips for prospective students
My first tip for a prospective student is to not enroll here with preconceived notions of college life. What you read about and see on TV or witness during other college visits is not what happens here. University of Puget Sound is a one of a kind place where everyone is accepted and embraced for exactly who they are. Every single student here is exceptionally smart and the academics are competitive, it is impossible to be the best so just be you.
Great for these types of students
UPS is great for laid back and open minded students who have a fierce desire to get the best education.

there are days when it will be raining and you will have piles of homework and a to-do list the length of shopping receipt, and you will ask yourself how you got tricked into attending this school, but then, there will be moments when you will have a completely unique experience that will make-up for all the dreary days put together. you may find yourself on orcas island with the sailing team or shaking your hips during the school-wide luau or snow shoeing on mt. ranier or watching street performers at pike place or volunteering at project homeless connect. you may find yourself talking to a local entrepreneur or handpicking blueberries or riding the ferry to the tipi camp on vashon island and that is when you will know that you made the right choice.
Tips for prospective students
your education is what you make it. the university will certainly lead you in the right direction, but ultimately, it is up to you to join a club, immerse yourself in tacoman culture, explore the surroundings and integrate into the community. looking back my only regret is not exploring tacoma more often and more intimately.
Academic Rigor
university of puget sound, being a liberal arts college, places great emphasis on its cross-disciplinary structure and intimate campus setting, making for an interactive learning environment.
Dorm Life
the dorms themselves are quite nice in the brick-laid tudor gothic style buildings. there have also been many new renovations and buildings include common areas, a kitchen, and all of the essentials. they are within a short stride to the sub or student union building where the cafeteria is located.
Food and Dining
i remember my campus tour when my guide was talking about dining services. she said something about the standard deviation regarding students getting sick is about two weeks longer than other school. to put plainly, the food is pretty hard to get sick of.
What to do for fun
take a ferry to vashon island, go sailing, rent snow shoes, bike the five mile loop in point defiance, drink coffee at an artsy cafe, participate in the repertory dance group, join puget sound outdoors or cooking club, watch a local band, watch a famous band, watch a street performer, go to the farmer's market, walk along the water front, eat fresh fish, pick blueberries, bring a t-shirt to the wayzgoose printmaking event, camp at vantage, sell something at the student market, watch a $1 campus movie, watch the banff film festival, taste chocolate at the theo chocolate factory, take an seattle ghost tour, explore!
Bang for the buck
university of puget sound is expensive unless you get scholarships, which the school works hard to give. it worth every penny.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
some sayings are tacoma aroma when the manufacturing mills give off a weird smell, tacoma goggles when students lower their standards for potential mates, t-loc aka tacoma local, and hipsters
Great for these types of students
student who love to learn, who love the outdoors, who are willing to work hard, who like seeing familiar faces, who are adventurous, who don't complain about the weather, and who are creative.
Clubs and Activities
personally, i've participated in varsity volleyball, repertory dance group (never danced before), luau, s.a.a.c (student athletics and academics committee), sailing team, cooking club, and have been published in crosscurrents (student literary magazine).
Greek Life
there are 4 fraternities and 4 sororities. the process is different than other schools in that students can only join after their second semester of freshman year. until then, freshman are not allowed in either the frats or sororities.
Campus Safety
i feel completely safe walking around campus at night, however there have been countless robberies in dorms and off-campus houses and tacoma has somewhat of a bad rep once you get a few blocks away.

Am learning a lot
I am learning a lot while here, and I enjoy my classes and my department. But, like any college, you will only get as much as you put in, so the harder you work the more you will learn. Sometimes how much you learn depends on the Professor, so ask upperclassmen during orientation, or upperclassmen in your major for their recommendations
Am enjoying being here
I have found a place for myself here, within my major and Greek life. There are many groups and clubs to get involved with, so finding a smaller group of people who share a common interest is not hard.
Bang for the buck
Yes, it's very expensive. But your money goes not only to great professors, but other programs as well (such as Student Government, tutoring services, excellent facilities, etc.).
Tips for prospective students
Come visit Puget Sound! You won't know what it will be like to be here until you are here.

Am learning a lot
I am studying vocal performance and receiving a BM at the University of Puget Sound. I am currently a junior and transferred from NYU to UPS last year. I have to say, compared to NYU, you would think that UPS would be a breeze... well it's not. The classes are kicking my butt, but it makes it all worth it. The professors are amazing, along with the class selection, and you'll never walk away from a day of classes without feeling like you've learned something. All and all I feel like in the one year I've spent at University of Puget Sound I've learned so much, and I can't wait for the years to come.
Am enjoying being here
I love being at the university along with Tacoma. Tacoma is a great college town; you have a ton of family and great neighborhoods surrounding the university so I've never felt unsafe walking home from someone's house back to the dorms or vise versus. The campus is beautiful, it looks like the colleges used in movies as dorky as that sounds, with the red brick buildings and the ivy growing up the walls, I absolutely fell in love. The social life is wonderful, Puget Sound really works hard on making everyone feel welcome whether you're living in the dorms or you are a few miles away from school living at home with your parents.
Bang for the buck
I have to say, coming from a very low income family, University of Puget Sound is on the expensive side, and it has been very hard for me to get scholarships. However, even though right now I'm a little afraid of how many loans I'm going to be working on paying back when I graduate, I think I'll look back and feel like every penny was worth it.
Tips for prospective students
If you're struggling, really go and talk to your professors. They will be there for you 100%. Puget Sound is really great about choosing their professors, they also do evaluations every few years to make sure the students are enjoying them.
Great for these types of students
I really think any type of student could come here and really enjoy it!!

In three sentences
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.
Tips for prospective students
if you really want to go to this school, apply for early decision. do this only if it's your first choice, but if you're at least decent student with some good credentials, you're almost certain to get in.
also be sure to visit campus if you can. this goes for any college, but it's always a good idea to take a tour so you can see more of the details of daily college life and of course ask questions to students.
Academic Rigor
coming from the ib program, the workload here is about the same if not a little less than what i had in high school. that is to say, you're definitely not going to get by slacking, and procrastination will often come around to hit you in the face, but as long as you treat your academic career here with respect, you can get by without too much stress. the classes are generally far more interesting as well. you might have a few hours of homework each day, but often you'll still have some time for socializing, clubs, etc., if you want. just be careful with your time later in the semester. of course, this is coming from an introvert. some students seem to socialize or be in activities all day and still get their work done. just take care to balance your time at first and you can adjust it as needed later.
Dorm Life
i can't say much about the dorms because i'm living in the foreign language and culture house, the freshman theme house. it's a great experience, living in relatively private space with only 12 other people as opposed to some hundreds. but from my experiences in the dorms so far, there's definitely a good amount of space and cleanliness, and the floor communities are pretty cool. all dorms have a few lounges with comfy chairs and pianos, some of which are really nice. i've made some good friends by hanging out in other dorms' lounges and drawing on whiteboards, playing piano, or just joining in whatever else is happening.
Food and Dining
as i said above, the food may seem old after a while, as you'll find lots of the same flavors even in varying dishes. but the choices are pretty broad, and it's very high-quality, especially for college food--and largely vegetarian/vegan. we have pasta, burritos, asian food, a table just for vegetarian/vegan options, a hamburger/fried fare grill, sandwiches, soups, and an awesome pizzaria with a very small convenience store downstairs. if you need anything else, there are several grocery stores within easy walking distance.
What to do for fun
campus films plays a new movie every friday; the asian studies department shows a few asian films throughout the year; puget sound outdoors does cool hikes every weekend; there are tons of clubs and fun recreational classes; there are lots of concerts and musical functions in a variety of styles; weekend parties; hanging out with friends--i'm probably missing a lot of things because i don't typically go out to do very much myself. and if you want to get off campus, the mall, downtown tacoma, and beautiful point defiance (park/zoo/aquarium/garden/beach) are just short bus rides away.
Bang for the buck
it's definitely expensive, but especially if you can get good scholarships--i'm going here for less than it would cost to go to my state school alternative--it is totally worth it. cool people, great academic programs, great support programs (disabilities services, career and employment services, the center for health and wellness services, etc. are all very helpful). i can't say much for the social scene, but if you're paying for a solid education, that's what you're going to get, on a beautiful campus and great location (if you don't mind the cold and rain--tacoma does have some glorious sunshine!). just make sure you check with other students about the classes you want to take, because some professors are much better than others and will get you a lot farther more easily.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
every year, the graduating class carves its year onto the handle of a hatchet unearthed near campus in the early 1900's. that is, when it hasn't been stolen--it's disappeared for years on end before.
Great for these types of students
ups' strongest programs are international political economy, biology, english, business & leadership, and psychology. they have strong international programs as well and some students are now (successfully) working to get an arabic program off the ground. it won't be a major/minor for some years, but it's coming into the limelight. this school is great for students interested in those and similar subjects (theater and art also seem popular), and for those who love the outdoors, want a small campus community, liberal arts classes, and value education. this school is also very amenable towards those who like sports, but while athletics are popular they are not exactly the school's strong spot.
Clubs and Activities
i haven't personally attended many of them, but from what i've seen and heard, they seem plentiful and growing, and lots of fun. there are quite a few clubs you might not expect.
Greek Life
apparently milder than most schools' fraternities and sororities. i can't speak for the greek life much because i'm not interested in it myself, but i know several people who didn't expect to get involved in it and did anyway, so it might be worth it for you to check it out.
Campus Safety
as long as you're careful, you should be safe. one of the biggest problems i've noticed is students letting strangers into dorms, and the strangers then go around looking for unlocked dorms with no one in them and steal their laptops and other valuables. therefore it's important to keep your dorm closed even when you go to the restroom--bring your keys. and it is totally acceptable to ask people waiting by doors to be let in to show their ids. if you're off-campus late at night, security services can escort you home. if you have a bike and don't have a u-lock, get one--bikes are stolen about once a week, and they're usually unlocked or sometimes cabled. u-locked bikes are rarely stolen. other situations do arise, as they do basically everywhere, but not very often. the campus seems to handle security problems very well.

UPS is the most welcoming, understanding, accepting, and loving community I have ever a part of. It is a place for challenging your mind, enriching your soul, and discovering yourself. Puget Sound is not only my school, but it is my home.
Tips for prospective students
Be outgoing! A great thing about UPS is the orientation program. They give you a full 10 days to great acquainted to the campus and living away from home. A tip for new students would be to use every one of these 10 days to help you! Use it to get yourself out there and meet people because friends will become your life at UPS. The hardest thing for me about college life was being so far away from my family and my home, it was such a drastic change in such a short amount of time. First semester was harder for me because I was afraid to get out there and meet new people. Second semester was so much better because I taught myself to be outgoing and friendly to everyone I met. That is my biggest tip to freshman: to not be afraid that you're going to be on your own, you have to learn to be both self-reliant and self-sufficient and to make a LOT of friends! They are the key to surviving the sad and stressful times, and are an essential part of college life.
Academic Rigor
UPS offers a large variety of great classes. Classes such as Ancient Greek (which I've taken!), Latin, classes on the Extraterrestrial and even a class on Lord of the Rings. While these classes sound amazing and interesting, the definitely aren't a walk in the park. Puget Sound's classes can be hard- but they are such great classes that they make you want to do all the work that they require. Every professor I've had this year has been amazing. They are so wonderful to their students, they always make themselves available to help students and always have the students best interest in mind. I felt like the classes I took pushed and challenged me- but in a way that I loved. I learned so much during my first year at Puget Sound and I am so eager to learn more.
Dorm Life
I love dorm life at UPS. I loved the dorm that I lived in my freshman year- the rooms were spacious and had great furniture. The bathrooms are always clean and there are laundry rooms on every floor. I lived in the only dorm on campus that was co-ed by floor (meaning that there was an all girls floor and all boys floor) and usually the dorms are co-ed by door. I loved living in a co-ed by floor dorm. I felt like part of a family with the girls on my floor, it was great because I felt like I was good friends with each and every one of them. There was a lounge on the third floor (which was a boys floor) and going there to study or socialize was always great. Everyone was always so friendly and outgoing- I always felt welcome. I've been in all the dorms on campus and each and every single one was so unique and so beautiful. UPS's dorm life is really top notch.
Food and Dining
One of my top three favorite things about Puget Sound is the food. The sub (the school cafeteria) has stations in which students can choose to get food from: Italian, Latin America, Asian, Vegetarian/Vegan, The Grill, Chef's Table, The Deli, and the salad bar. UPS always has a variety of meals and dishes that are being served- I've never gotten bored or sick of the food there. Not to mention that every thing is delicious. I always enjoy and look forward to eating at the sub.
What to do for fun
Puget Sound is located in the middle of the residential area of Tacoma. This is great for safety and for feeling like part of a community, but this can also be bad if people are looking for night/city life. If someone is really looking to go out for the night and have a good time- Seattle is a pretty short drive away. But if you want to stay in town/on campus, there are so many options for that, as well. One of the buildings on campus has an underground movie theatre that plays movies on the weekends for just $1. Also there are always a ton of events happening on campus- ranging from school dances to stand up comedy- something is always happening on campus. Another thing that never fails is to just be with your friends. Having friends at Puget Sound is crucial, there are the key to having an amazing college experience and always having fun.
Bang for the buck
One big worry about Puget Sound is just how expensive it is- it's a pretty pricey school. But I think it's absolutely worth it. Puget Sound has not only become my school but my new home. The dorms are absolutely beautiful with spacious rooms, a kitchen in every building, and laundry on every floor. The class rooms and class buildings are fantastic and the cafeteria food is absolutely amazing. The sub is always serving a variety of dishes and has so many stations to chose from- I've never gotten bored of the food. Although UPS is expensive, it is more than worth it.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
UPS has a variety of little nooks and crannies- as long as you are willing to go look for them! One wonderful thing on campus is Oppenheimer Cafe. It's a cafe with walls that are made entirely out of glass. In the winter, they heat the brick floors and the cafe becomes somewhat of a reverse snow globe. It's a great place for both studying and socializing. Some other great places on campus are the Cellar (our on-campus pizza place), Diversions Cafe, and all the various lounges sprinkled around campus.
Great for these types of students
At Puget Sound, I have met people that I never thought I would. There are people from all over the nation and all over the world. This is one of my favorite qualities about UPS, that there is such a large variety of people here. There is no one type of person at UPS, there's just a very eclectic group. One thing that is so great, is how understanding everyone is at the school for all walks of life. Puget Sound has a great LGBT community and is very proactive for equality. Everyone I have met there is so understanding and welcoming, no matter who you are or where you come from. It's a great place to not only learn about so many people and backgrounds, but to be accepted and loved for your own.
Clubs and Activities
UPS has a large variety of clubs on campus from BGLAD (the LGBT club) to Veggie Might! (a club for vegetarians/vegans), there is a club for everyone. We even have a circus clubs which invites people to come and learn moves such as tight rope walking and other various things. In the beginning of the school year, we have an event called Log Jam which has all the school clubs out on an open field, allowing all students to come and learn about/join as many clubs as they want. There's so many to choose from, it's hard to not be involved with all of them.
Greek Life
Unfortunately, I am not a part of Greek Life but I do have a variety of friends who are involved in it. I do plan to rush for a sorority in the Spring 2013. All my friends that are involved- both in a Sorority and a Fraternity- love being a part of it. The Greek Life at Puget Sound is not stereotypical or what one would usually expect of Greek Life, it is welcoming to all kinds of people and extremely understanding and caring to all members. A friend of mine told me that at the beginning of rush, sororities ask your opinion on drugs and alcohol and if you are strongly against using them/have never used them- the sorority doesn't force you to drink or participate in drug usage. That statement made me so happy to know that they were so respectful and understanding.
Campus Safety
Even in the middle of the night, I've never felt like my safety wasn't important at Puget Sound. Security is always just a phone call away and they are always willing to go above and beyond for their students. Whether it be to walk you across campus at night or pick you up across town because your car battery died- security will always been there. Security has never let me down and always made me feel like my safety was the most important priority.
