Class of 1985
It's been 30 years since the class of 1985 graduated from Puget Sound - it's time to come back home!
What are some of your favorite memories?
"Learning great things about how the world works in my Economics courses and struggling on complex proofs in Math classes." – Lisa Nunn ‘85
"Beautiful sunny days in the quad juggling... my KUPS radio show... Winterim in Paris with Michel Rocchi.” – Carolyn Glenn ‘85
“Seeing costumes I'd worked on onstage at the Inside Theater; chorale concerts; "studying" outside on warm spring days; the collage of sounds emitted from music building practice rooms.”
– Karen Eisenbrey ‘85
What faculty or staff members do you remember most?
"Esther Wagner was a favorite and I played charades in her home more than a couple times."
– Wendy Evered ‘85
"Wade Hands, Ross Singleton, Kate Stirling, Bruce Mann, Mike Veseth, and Ernie Combs are each present in my classroom as I'm teaching economics and I'm grateful to each of them." – Lisa Nunn ‘85
"[Professor] Balaam had us over to his house to dinner which meant so much in personalizing my education.” – Debra Dahlin ‘85
"Michel Rocchi inspired us - to speak French, think French, stretch who we were when we arrived at the University and work to craft the person and life we could imagine. Dr. Ebert cracked the whip in 8am music theory and inspired/scared us in to working hard and loving music from a much more literate position. Dr. Overman stretched who I was intellectually and spiritually in a most astounding way." –Mary Pyper ‘85
