Class of 1969

Can you believe that it has been 45 years since your time at Puget Sound? No doubt the memories you cherish make it feel like it was just yesterday! 


What are some of your favorite memories?

“The geology field trip up the Carbon River and the plane flight over Enumclaw to see the mud flows coming down from Mt, Rainier.”  David Sherbrooke

“Growing up”  Leo Lange

“Water fights, weekly Honors colloquium, late coffee study in the dining hall, all classes, my sisters in Pi Beta Phi.”  Lynn Geddes

“Living at the Commencement Bay Campus as one of 17 students in the old Weyerhaueser mansion.”  Ron Powers

“Coffee with 4 or 5 students and a professor in the SUB and then going together to a class where we simply continued the conversation.“  David Kinman

“The night the Bell Tower played 7-1/2 minutes of sound effects and voices.  (Yes, I did have something to do with it.)”  Rockwell Smith


How would you describe your experience as a student?

“Very sincere interest and exemplary commitment to students from faculty.”  Lynn Geddes

“It was a great experience and I met many of my lifelong friends at UPS.”  Sandra Huggins


What faculty or staff members do you remember most?

“Easily Drs. Anderson and Lowther in the Geology Department.  They set the standard for outstanding team teaching because they both loved what they wer doing.  I came within calculus of being a geology major because of them.  They both shaped my teaching career by setting examples that I followed during my 36 year teaching career.”  David Sherbrooke

“Dr. John Phillips [for] his knowledge of and enthusiasm for religion, his leadership on the semester abroad program in Rome”  Mark Clark
