UPS Joins New Effort to Help Students Attend Their Dream College

Shirley Skeel, The Suburban Times

High-achieving students who put University of Puget Sound on their “wish lists” of great colleges to attend—but who may not have the resources or opportunity to seek admission at a leading four-year institution directly from high school—now have a new way to pursue their goal.

Puget Sound has joined other top colleges and universities as a member of the American Honors Network, a first-of-its-kind, national education initiative. Announced today, the new network of 27 public and private four-year colleges and universities will help community college honors students gain access to new transfer opportunities.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with the American Honors Network to create a direct pipeline for talented community college students to join the vibrant academic community of University of Puget Sound without missing a beat,” said Jenny Rickard, Puget Sound vice president for enrollment.”
