In years past, ASUPS would put out a “freshmen handbook” which included descriptions of campus events, student activities, traditions and songs, and appropriate attire for every event! Ladies, if you wanted to know whether evening gloves were appropriate at a football game, this handbook had you covered.
Perhaps my favorite tradition, from 1928-1929, is “Hello”:
“The ‘Hello’ spirit was started at Puget Sound two years ago and since that time has instinctively grown to be one of the most popular traditions on the campus. Always greet your fellow students—whether you know them or not—faculty members, and strangers with a cheery ‘Hello’—and a smile.”
This tradition seems to be alive and well on the Puget Sound campus today. So don’t be shy, say ‘Hello!’
