Degree: Cell/Cellular and Molecular Biology
Graduation Year: 2010

The advantage of this small liberal arts college for science majors is small classes and plentiful instrument time. As an undergraduate in regular classes you will work on GCMS, LCMS, HPLC, NMR and more. The disadvantage is that there is not the same opportunities for networking as at larger universities that have science masters and PhD programs on site, however graduates have gone on to obtain graduate prestigious programs at excellent institutions.

Degree: Art & Design
Graduation Year: 2013

It's beautiful and has a wonderful community. The college keeps its student body at around 2000, so it feels teeny and comfortable. Professors are super involved, class sizes are small, and there are a lot of resources to succeed. Best programs to major in at this school would be chem/bio, music, psych, or politics, but there are hidden gems in every department. They also have master programs for education and OT/PT. Please do your research, though! This school is extremely costly, as it is small and private. I would not recommend attending unless you manage to get a nicely sized scholarship and/or financial aid package.

Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2011

I loved the college I went to and the relationships I made while in school. However, I wish I had chosen a degree that would have helped me find a better paying job after I graduated.

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2015

Students are not required to declare majors until the end of sophomore year, so we all had some time to take courses from all kinds of programs and see if they are interesing. CS faculty are helpful, nice and knowledgeable. They care about students and try to help in every possible way. Very accessible!

The faculty and community at Puget Sound is was drew me to the campus in the first place and what I have enjoyed most about my experience here. As a current senior, I have loved how involved the professors are and how much they actually care. I can go into their office any day of the school week and ask them questions about homework, independent projects, questions from another class, career and internship stuff, or just general life stuff. The classroom experience is great - small classes (no larger than 25, even at the intro level classes) and often incorporate lab and lecture (in the CS department). Because it's a liberal arts, I've also taken classes in Business, Spanish, Economics, Philosophy, Politics and Government, Science, etc. My experience, while some better than others, overall has been extremely positive. I already have a job lined up for when I graduate at a company with many other Puget Sound alumni. They all say they felt very prepared for the position and I am very excited to start.
