Info for Parents Counselors

Visit Puget Sound

Welcome! People are the heart of the Puget Sound community, and we can't wait to get to know you. 

We are pleased to welcome admitted students to campus for in-person tours. We know that visiting campus is not a good option for everyone, and we are delighted to offer a variety of virtual options for students and families for whom travel is not an option, including high school juniors beginning their college search.

Virtual Visits


 Information sessions

Wednesdays at 1 p.m. and Thursdays at 3 p.m. Pacific Time

Join one of our admission counselors for a 30 minute live information session to introduce you to Puget Sound. Sessions are offered on select weekdays, excluding holidays; registration closes an hour prior to the start of the session. This is a great place to start if you're just getting to know Puget Sound, such as high school juniors, high school seniors, and transfer students who have not yet started an application.

 "My Life as a Logger" student-led snapshot tour

Weekdays at 2 p.m. Pacific Time

Your tour guide will touch on important elements of the Logger experience, and illustrate these points with examples and photos from their own time at Puget Sound. Live questions and dialogue are welcome and encouraged. All prospective students are welcome.

 Lunch with Loggers

Weekdays at 12 p.m. Pacific Time

Ready to ask questions and introduce yourself? Join current Puget Sound students over lunch for a casual group Q&A intended to help all prospective students get to know our students and meet other potential future Loggers. 

 Connect with a Counselor

Got questions? Prospective and admitted students can schedule a 30 minute one-one-one video call with an admission counselor. Appointments are available on weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pacific Time and registration closes three days in advance. This is a great option for those who have attended our virtual information session.

 Special Events

We are pleased to offer a number of special virtual events for admitted students in Spring 2021, including Financial Aid Nights, Choose Puget Sound events for admitted students, and Spotlight webinars on topics like experiential learning, equity and inclusion, and residence life. Learn more and register.

In-Person Visits (Admitted Students Only)


Beginning Feb. 16, we are pleased to offer a limited number of in-person campus tours to admitted students, in accordance with Centers for Disease Control COVID-19 protocols. Each student may be accompanied by a single guest, and will join one of our student guides for an hour-long tour. All tours will be limited to small groups to allow for appropriate social distancing. Following completion of the tour students and guests may attend an optional twenty-minute Q&A session with one of our admission counselors.

Here are some additional details:

    • Your visit will take place almost entirely outdoors, so please dress for the weather! A small travel umbrella, or a light rain jacket with a hood might come in handy.
    • All students, guests, and admission staff are required to wear a face covering for the entire visit and maintain a 6-foot distance from others.
    • All students, guests, and admission staff must complete a health screening before arriving on campus.
    • In addition to our campus guidelines, we encourage visitors to review the State of Washington's travel advisory to ensure you are well-informed about state recommendations prior to your arrival.
