Students at the University of Puget Sound may choose to drink during their time as a Logger. However, we know from campus research that several students also choose to abstain from drinking altogether. If students choose to drink, the majority do so in moderation.

While the university does not condone alcohol or other drugs, we are realistic in our efforts around prevention, education, and intervention. Our Substance Abuse Prevention efforts utilize social norming, harm reduction, and a motivational approach to engage in open dialogue with students about their relationship to alcohol and other drugs.

The information on this page is geared towards educating the Puget Sound community about the use of alcohol and aims to provide objective, science-based resources.
