Where do class notes come from?
About half the class notes come directly from you, either in letters or in email updates. Some reach us when alumni volunteer for the ASK network and grant permission for the information they provide to be published in class notes. The rest are compiled from a variety of public sources: newspaper and magazine clippings from around the United States and press releases sent to us by employers when, for example, a Puget Sound alum at the company gets a new job.

Please note it is our policy not to publish pregnancy or engagement announcements, or candidacies for political office. However, we are happy to print news of births, marriages, and elections to office. Class notes submissions are edited for style, clarity, and length.

High-resolution digital photos or prints preferred. Kindly identify alumni in the snapshot. Also, please, for baby pictures, include alumni parents in the photo.
