PacRim gets Financial Aid Expansion

By Nayra Halajian Studying abroad can be a crucial experience in a college education. But what if you can’t afford it? In January, the University of Puget Sound temporarily extended merit-based financial aid to the Pacific Rim Study Abroad Program (PacRim) for 2017-18 . This action reversed a measure by the Cabinet of the Board of Trustees approved in Spring 2009. In 2008, the University noticed they had lost a significant amount of money due to the financial burden of Study Abroad programs. Parallel efforts by the International Education Committee...

Campus community calls for sanctuary campus

By Aidan Regan Dec 6th, 2016 “We are asking the University to…not be complacent like we were during WWII when our Japanese students were taken from campus and our University did nothing,” Amanda Diaz, a Puget Sound junior, said about the petition to classify Puget Sound as a sanctuary campus. “Sanctuary campuses are those that promise to not assist federal immigration officials in the investigation of the immigration status of members of a campus community—students, faculty, and staff alike,” President Crawford wrote in his campus-wide email responding to the petition...

Death of Diversity Narratives by Latinos Unidos

“This school is so white,” was my first thought coming to this school. But I won’t judge a person just because of their skin color and the stereotyped elitist status that comes with it. Yet I quickly began missing La Ciudad de Los Angeles where left and right was a sea of pigmented skins, from the palest of whites to the darkest of blacks. I can do this. These people’s skin color mean nothing. They’re young adults with open minds who will accept me and my Guatemalan culture. Who will...

Super Rich Kids

In 1987, American author Bret Easton Ellis published his second novel The Rules of Attraction. The novel recounts the debauchery of bratty, sophomoric and elite students at a small liberal arts college on the east coast. The backdrop of the novel, showing the fictional Camden College, bears a striking aesthetic resemblance to University of Puget Sound in size and general disposition of the students. The connection between Ellis’s second novel and the debate on whether or not Puget Sound should continue to issue merit aid may seem nebulous at first;...

“Coming out”: What does it do for you?

The rise of discourse surrounding gender and sexuality has reached unprecedented heights over the last generation. While a measure of progress is hard to determine, the strides that have been made for such marginalized individuals is still worth celebrating. Connecting with this is the concept of “coming out,” celebrated by National Coming Out Day on Oct. 11. Individuals of non-normative sexuality and gender are commended and, to a degree, encouraged to come out of the closet and express themselves openly. As the discourse extends, so does the holiday. As the...

In defense of collegiate backlash; College culture is shunning out a major voice in current american culture. By Jack Kelly

On Tuesday September 22, the internet’s leading source on all purpose cynicism and mob justice, Gawker, published a story regarding a recent controversy at Wesleyan University. According to Gawker, students at the Connecticut university are seeking to defund their campus newspaper, The Argus, after the paper published an op-ed piece entitled “Black Lives Matter Isn’t What You Think”. The Argus piece claimed that the Black Lives Matter movement is inconsistent, contradictory and fraudulent. The piece strongly defended police forces around the country. There are at least 150 signatures for a...

Community shares concerns on sexual assault reporting policies in second Speak Up! forum

While sexual assault, misconduct, and harassment have always been a part of the conversations on college campuses (sometimes in good ways and sometimes not), this year there has been a venerable explosion of coverage around the nation on this topic. Not to be left out of the conversation, Puget Sound students have taken up the call and have been asking, demanding, and shining the spotlight on these issues and what the campus has been doing or not doing. The culmination of these conversations were the Speak Up! forums. These talks...

A pleasant visit to Point D

In a stroke of marketing genius, Dodger Blatheramm, Head of Public Relations, decided to relocate the Point Defiance Zoo Exhibit to the Music Building in order “to bring attention to the wildly diverse student body we have here on campus” and “to really show students that we’re committed to ‘Living Green.’ What’s more green than letting the flora and fauna we borrowed from the zoo have a new life in the practice rooms?” Not all are very pleased about the changes. Director of bands Marshal Gard was heard to have...
