Puget Sound rocks. We made The Princeton Review's annual list of Best Colleges. And a few other lists, including Forbes' Best Value Colleges and Top Colleges, Kiplinger's Best College Values, and MONEY magazine's Best Colleges. Go Loggers!
Get your smoothie fix. The Lillis Cafe in the Athletics and Aquatics Center is open! The newest campus dining spot offers coffee, tea, pastries, grab-and-go options, and speciality/custom smoothies. Cafe hours: M–F, 7 a.m.–1:30 p.m., and 3:30–8 p.m.
Share an evening of scholarship, debate, and dinner. Rachel DeMotts, politics and government, explores contemporary ecology through Buddhism and environmental awareness at the first Daedalus Dinner of the semester on Tuesday, Sept. 27. Reserve your seat ($15) by Sept. 20, by calling x3207.
Community music adds new Suzuki class for infants and toddlers. "Nurtured by Music" is a new class for young children, beginning Oct. 6. Learn more about this and other community music classes offered this fall at pugetsound.edu/communitymusic.
Visit Puget Sound in the future—and the past. Every Wednesday this fall, Collins Memorial Library Archives and Special Collections will share part of a series of articles originally printed in The Trail in 1928 about a student who falls asleep—in 1928—and wakes up on campus in 2021. Check it out on The Puget Papers Tumblr.
There’s an active shooter on campus. Do you know what to do? We're conducting an all-campus lockdown drill on Wednesday, Sept. 14, at 10:45 a.m. It may be in the middle of class. Or a meeting. It may be inconvenient. It may mean your safety and the safety of those around you in the event of an actual emergency. Get ready. Review lockdown procedures and watch the training video Shots Fired on Campus (login required). 
Make sure we have your cellphone number. You will not receive a security alert about the drill on Wednesday—or future emergency notices—if we do not have your cellphone number. To provide your number or check to see that our records are current, send an email to hr@pugetsound.edu.

Brag about yourself
Happy 253 Day! Friday, Sept. 9, is the 253rd day of the year and an excellent excuse to celebrate being part of "the 253." Get yourself some Almond Roca, pop in a VHS of 10 Things I Hate About You, and watch our "How to Live in the City of Destiny" video. In other words revel in your Tacomaness. Pro Tip: 253 Day is usually Sept. 10, but February had 29 days this year. Oh, leap year.
