Last week's campus lockdown drill was a success. Thanks for your participation! Security Services reports that we continue to improve as a community in responding to emergencies, but we also noted a couple important things.
First our automatic lockdown system cannot lock doors that are propped open. We know it's sometimes necessary (especially with the summer we had!), but ask that you avoid propping open doors/windows when possible. If you must, recognize the risk, and be prepared to manually shut and lock them during a campus lockdown.
Second we learned that 139 faculty members, 94 staff members, and 66 students still have not provided their contact information to receive emergency alerts. If we don't have your cellphone number, you will receive security alerts only through your @pugetsound.edu email accountWe care about you, Loggers, so get your act together and give us your cellphone number.
Update your contact information by visiting myPugetSound → HR → Self Service → Personal Information. If we have your current info, and you still didn't receive the alerts, contact Todd Badham ’85, P'11 at tbadham@pugetsound.edu.

There ain't no party like a Constitution Day party, 'cuz a Constitution Day party is mandatory. Every year on Sept. 17, we commemorate the signing of the U.S. Constitution. Why? Well, technically, because we're required to. In 2004 Senator Robert Byrd added a clause to a federal spending bill mandating the recognition of Constitution Day in federal agencies and schools that receive federal funds. Here at Puget Sound, Student Financial Services leads the campus commemoration each year. Stop by the bulletin board outside the SFS office in the lower level of Jones Hall this week, and test your constitutional knowledge. Happy Constitution Day!
