Visit Puget Sound

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. Have more time? Perhaps you’re ready to interview or you’d like to sit in on a class, meet with a coach, or spend the night in a residence hall with a first-year student. Depending on where you are in your college search you can add these activities to your visit. To better serve you, we ask that you schedule your visit at least five days in advance.
