Theme Houses at Puget Sound are designed to create intentionally engaging living environments for sophomore, junior, and senior students. Students have the opportunity to live together with peers with common interests such as academic majors, athletics, foreign language, outdoor exploration, healthy living, and other activities. Our goal is that the selected theme houses will each make unique contributions to the campus living through their presence on campus.
Each Theme House has a student coordinator who will serve as a liaison to Residence Life. House members are expected to be involved and active in the campus community. A faculty or staff member advises each the theme house members in their efforts to support and connect with students with similar interests.
Standing Theme Houses and their advisors include, but are not limited to:
Maria Sampen, School of Music
Mike Orechia, Athletics
Reece Olney, Athletics
Justin Canny, Student Activities
Skylar Bihl, Intercultural & Civic Engagement
Mikiko S. Ludden, Asian Studies
Dan Sherman, Politics & Government
Emelie Peine, Economics
Allison Paradise, Mathematics
George Erving, Honors & Humanities Program
If you are interested in living in one of these theme houses, or in creating a new theme house, contact Residence Life by February 1 to be connected with faculty and staff advising each house.
