Info for Parents Counselors

Deirdre McGoldrick

What’s your favorite thing about working in the Office of Admission?
I love chatting with future students and their families as they gather for tours.  We've talked about rhododendrons, Jane Eyre, scary cookie recipes, and how rarely we have to scrape ice off our windshields here in the Pacific Northwest.

What attractions should visitors be sure to see? 
People visiting Tacoma on a warm day should seize the opportunity to walk Ruston Way and explore Point Defiance Park and Jones beach.  If it's chilly, take in the Museum of Glass and the Tacoma Art Museum.  Be sure to walk the Bridge of Glass between the museums and don't forget to look up!
