New director of alumni and parent relations, Don Scott ’91, returned to the university last fall after 27 years away.

Don Scott ’91 came to Puget Sound as a student without having seen the campus before. “The fall of my senior year, an admission counselor from the university visited my high school in Great Falls, Mont.,” he recalls. “I absolutely fell in love with everything that she had to say. Puget Sound was a stretch school for me, but it all came together—and those four years were a truly transformational experience for me.”

Scott majored in accounting, was on the residential life staff for three years, and took advantage of all that the university had to offer. “For example, I remember taking a music appreciation class with Geoffrey Block that I still think about today,” he says. “That’s the incredible thing about a liberal arts education. I don’t think I would have had the same kind of immersive experience at many other schools I could have attended.”
