How Do We Define Success?

At Puget Sound, we educate the whole person—mind, body, and spirit. So it makes sense that success, to us, is just as holistic. We encourage students to expand their worldviews, engage in civil discourse, reflect on their experiences, and create a better world. It’s no surprise to find, then, that so many alumni don’t just take the road less traveled—they bushwhack an entirely new path, while guided by a moral compass, an intersectional mindset, and a sustainable business model.

In three special issues of this magazine, we’re going to explore the meaning of success by telling the stories of alumni who have achieved it on their own terms. In this issue, we feature the dreamers who imagine new possibilities with creativity, courage, and sheer determination. In summer, we’ll focus on those who strive to make a real impact on the world, and in autumn, on those who embrace innovation in everything they do.
