University of Puget Sound Reviews
Review University of Puget Sound
The University of Puget Sound has allowed me a chance to achieve a higher education by providing me with financial aid. I have chosen to pursue a B.S. in Biochemistry and UPS has variety of classes to fulfill my major and prerequisites for medical school. The University has helped me progress academically by challenging my knowledge, critical thinking, and work ethic skills. I was able to excel and pass all of my first year courses with the help from the Center for Learning, Writing, and Teaching. The CWLT's mission was executed to perfection by providing a support faculty to create opportunities for all Puget Sound students to achieve their academic goals. However, I would like this institution to be a more diverse campus that is a safe space for people of color. As an individual who identifies as a Latina, I believe that this University must expand its faculty and student body in order to honestly portray this space as a diverse and inclusive campus for all.
University of Puget Sound is the total experience. You'll find world-class professors in every department, who not only love their topics, but love teaching and are great at it! Even better - the academic atmosphere extends beyond the classroom. Puget Sound students love to learn, discuss what they are learning, and apply it. The campus also has a strong focus on diversity and offers numerous opportunities to actively engage in important social topics effecting our culture and the world today. I miss the Puget Sound community, with all of it's intellectualism and social justice minded individuals. I have yet to find such a stimulating community anywhere else.
Something you notice when you move here is that everyone is extremely considerate and people are always holding doors open for you if you come up behind them. I feel so a lot more willing to speak up or introduce myself to people because of the general atmosphere of kindness. The campus and surrounding area is very beautiful, and it's widely encouraged to go out and enjoy the outdoors through Puget Sound Outdoors club or with field trips for your classes. The professors are all very smart and the majority of them are good teachers. A lot of them are amazing! The student body can generally be divided up into hipsters, athletes, and hippies, but it also seems like everyone here has or does something cool and unusual. Tons of people here have already done a lot of traveling abroad and student activism is becoming a very big part of student life.
