What additional thoughts do you have regarding the University of Puget Sound?

"Proud to be an Alumnus." - Glenn Johnson '66, '86

"I spent two years at UPS.  At the time of my attendance, I was living and working off campus, married and played on the baseball team.  This didn't leave a lot of time to be involved in University events.  While I really enjoyed the small class sizes and the learning opportunities that were a benefit of the class sizes, this too limited my ability to effectively engage with my fellow Loggers.  I understood then and now that some of the choices I made limited my university engagement and overall experience.  This is my only regret.  I remain thankful for the experiences that UPS did provide and continue to value the education I received.  Once a Logger Always a Logger!" - Darren Zemanek '86
