Interviews

You've taken the time to learn about us, and we'd love to do the same! Sit down for a one-on-one conversation with an admission representative. It's a fantastic way to share more about yourself beyond your application and to pick our brains about academics and campus life at Puget Sound. Interviews are intended to be both informational and evaluative, but are optional and not required for admission. Not ready to interview yet? We offer off-campus and virtual interviews throughout the year, as well.

Interviews are available for juniors in the spring semester and for seniors and transfer students in the fall semester.

Class Visits

Students are welcome to sit in on a class during your visit to Puget Sound. Given the small sizes of our classes, the number of prospective student visitors to each class is limited. We are unable to accommodate additional guests such as parents or family members. Please review the list of available classes when checking in; class visits are on a first-come, first-served basis. Due to scheduled exams and other modifications to the course schedule, we regret that we are unable to guarantee the availability of specific courses on the day of your visit.

Out of respect to the instructor and students in the class, we ask that student visitors arrive on time and stay for the duration of class. We kindly remind students to silence or turn off their cell phones. 

Overnight Visits

High school seniors may spend the night in a residence hall with a current student host. You'll meet your host when you check in, then enjoy dinner in The Diner and evening activities. In the morning, breakfast is on us before you sit in on a class and participate in our information session and campus tours. Make sure you bring a sleeping bag, a pillow, towel, and toiletries and that you arrive in the admission office between 4 and 4:45 p.m.

Overnight visits are offered Monday through Thursday, excluding holidays and breaks. 

Athletic Appointments

Puget Sound is an NCAA Division III institution and member of the Northwest Conference, sponsoring 23 men's and women's varsity intercollegiate sports. Prospective student-athletes may request a meeting with a coach as part of a campus visit. Please note that we will make every effort to arrange an athletic appointment, but in rare cases, there may not be a representative available on the day of your visit. For more information about athletic recruitment, please visit the Puget Sound Athletics website.

Academic Appointments

In addition to class visits, prospective students may schedule a meeting with a professor in the department of their interestPlease note that we will make every effort to arrange an academic appointment, but in rare cases, there may not be a professor available on the day of your visit. 

School of Music Tours

University of Puget Sound is one of the few liberal arts colleges in the nation (and the only one in the Pacific Northwest) to offer a full symphony orchestra, concert band, jazz band, opera and comprehensive choral program through our renowned School of Music. We invite guests to explore the facilities during their visit to campus. The music tour is available for guests attending the 9 a.m. or 1 p.m. information sessions and will highlight our rehearsal and performance spaces.

Please plan on arriving at least 10 minutes prior to the start of your session in order to ensure that you receive a complete campus visit experience.
