University of Puget Sound makes select list of liberal arts colleges

Tacoma’s University of Puget Sound, a private liberal arts college, has made a prestigious college rankings list in a new edition of the book “Colleges that Change Lives.”

It’s the first time that UPS has appeared on the list, which recognizes 40 colleges with low student-to-faculty ratios that focus on the liberal arts and sciences, and where professors are deemed to be passionate about teaching, mentoring and advising their students. The schools are also noted for emphasizing community involvement and personal growth, out-of-classroom learning experiences and a strong network of alumni.

The first edition of the book, published in 1996 and written by former New York Times education reporter Loren Pope, included both private Whitman College in Walla Walla and The Evergreen State College, a public college in Olympia. In this fourth edition of the book, written by Hilary Masell Oswald, Evergreen didn’t make the list of 40.
