Celebrate Student Employment Month! Did you know? Student staff members provide more than 25 percent of Puget Sound’s nonfaculty staffing and hold important positions that contribute to our mission and strategic goals. During the month of April, be sure to thank your student staffers. Learn more about the benefits and impacts of student employment at pugetsound.edu/ces.
Do you know a staff member who goes above and beyond? The Excellence in Action award recognizes staff members who consistently exhibit excellence in their work at Puget Sound at the annual Staff Recognition Luncheon (this year on Friday, May 26). Nominate a deserving staffer by completing the nomination form by April 7. #totheheights
Aloha! Puget Sound's 47th annual Sping Lu`au, organized by Ka Ohana Me Ke Aloha, the campus Hawai`i club, will be this Saturday, April 8. Dinner begins at 5 p.m., in Wheelock Student Center, with the show following at 6:30 p.m., in Memorial Fieldhouse.

Coming soon: A Day in the Life of Puget Sound! The summer issue of Arches, the college’s multiple award-winning alumni magazine, will be a special 24-hours-of-Puget-Sound edition. Nearly all pictures, few words. The editors are encouraging anyone with a camera to take photos on Wednesday, April 19, and submit them for consideration. Photos that make us wonder. Photos striking for their beauty. Photos that tell a story. Photos that make us smile. Faculty members, if there’s something going on in your class that day that you think might be interesting visually, please let us know and we’ll make sure someone with a camera is there. Contact Arches editor Chuck Luce at cbluce@pugetsound.edu with tips or questions.
Staff Senate calls for donations for annual raffle. The annual Staff Senate gift basket raffle will be held April 27–28. Proceeds from the raffle benefit the Rosa Beth Gibson Book Scholarship. Donated gift baskets may include game or concert tickets, items based on a special theme (such as a green-thumb basket with gardening items), or a host of other items. Baskets should be turned in to Sally Pierson in the bookstore by Tuesday, April 25, or contact any member of the Special Events Committee (Sue Dahlin, x3433; Amber Brock, x2651; or Tanna Masters, x3140) to arrange a pickup.
