Registration for Decision Puget Sound on April 14 is currently closed. We'd love to welcome you to campus on another day. To do so, please register for a campus visit.

You and your family are invited to Decision Puget Sound admitted student days! This is your opportunity to attend a class, meet current students and parents, tour campus, and see all that Puget Sound has to offer. Choose from one of three dates, or if those dates don't work for you, schedule an information session and campus tour

Registration and breakfast will take place in Wheelock Student Center (#54 on the campus map).

Optional Overnight Stay

Get the full Puget Sound experience by spending the night on campus! You must arrive on campus the day before the event between 4 to 5 p.m. to participate in the overnight portion. On-campus accommodations are for admitted students only — family members can find a list of nearby accommodations here. We’ll provide admitted students with dinner, evening activities, and pair them with a current Puget Sound student host.

Students staying overnight and families will reconnect the next morning for Decision Puget Sound.


Admitted student families are welcome to attend Decision Puget Sound! Please note that on-campus accommodations are for admitted students only.

The evening before each event, we will be hosting a special parent reception where you can meet faculty, staff, and current students. Refreshments will be served!
