Info for Parents Counselors

Connect with Current Students

Puget Sound students come from all over the country and world and have diverse interests, backgrounds, and experiences. Meet some of our current students who want to connect with you, answer any questions that you might have, and tell you about their experience at Puget Sound! Explore the student profiles to learn more about their time on campus so far and to connect with them individually. 
 
Note: students are now in summer break and vacation. If you are looking to connect with a student who you do not see here please contact your admission counselor directly and let us know who you want to connect with.
