We Are Here

Our community consists of smart, interesting, endlessly curious people, all of whom somehow have found their place here. We call the student center rotunda “The Rofunda.” We like to stay active – on campus (over 100 student run organizations!) but also in the Tacoma community (75 percent of us are involved in service). 

Puget Sound’s 97-acre residential campus is our home base. Some of us live in student-developed theme houses on campus (recent examples: Muses House, Outhaus, Serotonin House). Some of us swim, sing in ensembles, play volleyball or Frisbee, and compete in competitive Division III athletics.

We embrace the adventurous culture of the Pacific Northwest. Mountain climbing, hiking, biking, skiing, kayaking, paddle boarding – these are all part of our active vocabulary. We delve into the city life Tacoma, Olympia, and Seattle offer and explore nearby national parks and wilderness areas. All members of our community are involved in bold journeys of personal and intellectual discovery.
