5. How do I add/remove my contact information in the Online Alumni Directory?

Alumni have complete control over whether their contact information appears in the Online Alumni Directory and what information appears. All you need to do is delete the information that you do not want to display. For example, if you only want your work address to be listed, delete your home address from your listing. We strongly encourage you to display your e-mail address. If you are listed and do not want to be:

  • Simply go to the Online Directory area of the Online Community and select View/Update Your Online Directory Listing and log on (using your username and password).
  • Click to modify your directory listing preferences. From there you can select to hide any fields you desire, including your entire listing.
  • If you would like to be listed and are not, please follow the above steps and once in the update mode, check the Display in Directory box. Your information will be displayed in the Online Alumni Directory. You can change this at any time.

Please note: You may display your contact information even if you do not choose to subscribe to the Alumni Online Directory.

7. Is that a zero or a letter "O" in my ID number?

All University of Puget Sound alumni ID numbers begin with a capital letter B, followed by a series of zeros, not the letter "O". It will look something like this: 000001234

When you receive your ID number from the LOGGER[net] system, you may wish to cut and paste it directly into the ID number field when you register for the first time. This will help prevent any typographical errors.
