The best way to get a true sense of the Puget Sound experience is by visiting.
The cornerstone of every Puget Sound visit is a two-hour session that includes both an information session led by an admission counselor and a student-led campus tour. During the summer (May 19 – August 29), these sessions are offered each weekday at 9:00 am, 11:00 am, and 1:00 pm, with the exception of Memorial Day (May 26) and Independence Day (July 4). Please note that we are unable to offer Saturday visits during the summer.
In addition to the two-hour session, rising high school seniors (graduating in 2015) and college students who are considering a transfer to Puget Sound are also welcome to schedule an interview with a member of our staff.
Group visits are offered from late September through April each year. If you are a group wanting to visit campus, please call Stephanie Knottingham (253.879.3989) at least two weeks in advance. Group tours are offered Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 9 a.m. or 11 a.m. with an information session at 10 a.m. We can accommodate groups of up to 50 students and we require a chaperone for every 10 students. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide meal tickets to groups.
The Office of Admission is open year-round Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. During exam periods and university holidays, these schedules may be altered. For more specific closure information, please consult the Academic Calendar.
