THE GOAL

1,360 Loggers Come Together to Make a Lasting Impact!

LOGGER DAY CHALLENGE is a day of pride and philanthropy. It is an opportunity to come together to support each other, our community, and the university we love.

  • Show your Logger Spirit by being creative with a cut-out Grizz and sharing on social media and below to inspire other Loggers to join the festivities! Don’t forget to tag Puget Sound at @univpugetsound and use the hashtag #LoggerDayChallenge.

Paige Shinall ’25 and Gwen Lindberg ’25 worked at Mount Rainier National Park in Washington as interns for the park's Imminent Threats program. This recently established internship will provide Loggers with an opportunity to get hands-on experience conducting research in a complex and vast natural setting.

In the fall we announced the newly formed Department of Environmental Studies & Sciences (ESS), which will launch in fall 2024! This department will allow students to experience and study the environment through an interdisciplinary approach that combines natural sciences, social sciences, and arts and humanities. Our faculty are poised to ensure that ESS is stewarded in Puget Sound’s pioneering spirit.

"I think about our department as being a way to train leaders and collaborators and creative problem solvers, however they choose to take their training here and apply it." Associate Professor Jess Smith '05


No matter the major, Puget Sound students graduate with the skills and the knowledge to navigate a changing world.

Abby Steward '25 spent the summer exploring Epiphytes of Olympic National Park: getting hands-on experience, doing graduate school level research, and being mentored by Professor Woods. Today and every day, you are supporting experiences like Abby's. Experiences and an education that transcends the classroom. Students who go on to be leaders, collaborators, advocates, innovators, and mentors.
