KNOW THIS campus news and announcements
It's not your grandma's press release. Big news, Loggers. We've launched a new digital storytelling platform with dynamic, multimedia content. Puget Sound Stories is a new section of our website offering two or three "snackable" stories every couple weeks, as well as quarterly Arches magazine content, all in one place. This makes it easy to explore, read, and share your favorite Puget Sound stories. Campus events and goings-on? Creative teaching techniques? Student research? Innovative campus initiatives? We've got you covered. Take a look at Puget Sound Stories at pugetsound.edu/stories—and check back often!
Loggers keep learning... at work!
