The Logger Card is the official University of Puget Sound ID card. It is the cardholder’s “proof” of affiliation with the university. The card allows access to various privileges at the university. The card may also give the cardholder access to optional services, including campus meal plans, packages at mail services and the bookstore.
All Puget Sound students, employees, and qualifying university affiliates are eligible for a Logger Card. The Dining Services Office also produces specialized dining charge cards for various departments. ID Cards are not available for courtesy affiliates, visitors, vendors, alumni or spouses of university affiliates. Only the person pictured on the card is authorized to use the card to make purchases or conduct other business on it. Logger Card clients are issued only one identification card. Duplicate Logger Cards must be surrendered to authorized personnel upon request for proper destruction.
Account balance information will only be released to the account holder. Parents of the affiliate cannot request account information without consent from the student.
Lost, stolen, or misplaced cards must be reported immediately to Security Services at 253.879.3311. To obtain a replacement card, go to the new Dining Services Office (WSC 240) during business hours. There is a $20 charge for a reprint of a lost or stolen Logger Card.
Dining and Conference Services will hold all lost/stolen cards returned to the department for 90 days. After that period, no lost/stolen Logger Cards will be returned to clients.
To obtain a Logger Card, go to the new Dining Services Office (WSC 240) Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. – 4: 30 p.m during the academic year. You must provide an official government issued ID card as proof of identity. All International students must show their passport. All Logger Cards cost $20. Students, faculty and staff will receive their first card free of charge. Cardholders are responsible for picking up cards in person. Cards are not sent by mail.
Fred Hamel, an associate professor in the School of Education, says he’s been especially interested lately in school-university partnerships and mentoring practices between student teachers and master teachers in the classroom. A Seattle native and English/language arts teacher in both urban and suburban high schools for 12 years (and briefly a professional soccer player!) before joining the Puget Sound faculty, Hamel spends a lot of time in Tacoma-area schools. “It helps me stay connected to the public-school setting and remain part of a grounded conversation about teaching,” he says. Since 2005 Hamel has been facilitating an exchange with U.S. and Japanese pre-service teachers called the Japan Friendship Exchange. The program has made it possible for more than 15 Puget Sound M.A.T. students to travel to Japan, interact with Japanese education students, take in cultural experiences, and teach in local Japanese schools.
The close-knit Geology Department offers a broad spectrum of classes, all of which include a field component ranging from day or weekend trips to semester-long projects that integrate field and laboratory analysis. Geology faculty are actively engaged in research that involves our students. Many of our projects are based here in the Pacific Northwest, but we have also taken students to more distant research locations including Alaska, the American Southwest, Ascension Island, and Africa.
