One way or another, you have found yourself on the Residence Life blog at the University of Puget Sound. Why does Res Life have a blog? As a nationally recognized private, liberal arts, residential college, Puget Sound believes that living on-campus is the best way to integrate into the fabric of the Puget Sound community. Living on campus is safe. It’s convenient. It’s affordable. And it’s fun! What makes living on campus so great? It’s the people. Just ask any Logger why they chose to come to Puget Sound, to work or to study, and again and again you’ll hear “the people.” We are a unique bunch, and we love that about ourselves. Small but mighty, the community at Puget Sound is made up of an eclectic and diverse group of students, faculty, and staff – and Residence Life is one place where all these voices merge into one chorus that creates the buzz we call community. Our community is made of the students lounging on the north quad lawn as soon as the temperature hits 60, the staff helping a student in crisis, the facilities staff who keep the grounds impeccable and clean more microwaves than they really should, and the faculty members leading lectures in our mixed use residential spaces on campus. All of these scenes play out in our community to create that special place that before students realize – Puget Sound is what they call “home.”
This blog is here to celebrate the people and the voices of the residential side of campus, and to share stories. We may provide advice about upcoming deadlines and process, and we may show you a peak behind the curtain of why we do things the way we do. Whether you’re a prospective student, current member of our community, parent, or curious citizen – we welcome you to the Puget Sound Residence Life blog!
