Take a break today from getting your Irish on for St. Patrick’s Day to mark another March 17 anniversary: The 125th birthday of the University of Puget Sound.
The City of Tacoma has declared March 17 University of Puget Sound Day, in recognition of all that the city’s residents and the university have shared together since 1888. So watch for loyal Logger alums wearing maroon.
To help celebrate the anniversary, friends and visitors including Bill Cosby, Robert Reich, the university’s community music children’s violin class, the university’s Adelphian choir alumni and many others have wished a “Happy Birthday” via video.
Today, the videos will begin appearing at www.pugetsound.edu/125
Want to share your memories of your Logger days? Send in your own video, photos, or written thoughts via the Share Your Memories link at the top of the anniversary home page. The university will post your creation and share it.
You can also attend the Women’s League Flea Market on Saturday, March 23 and look for the 125th Anniversary Booth where you can record or submit your best wishes to the University of Puget Sound. The market runs 9 a.m.–4 p.m. in Memorial Fieldhouse on campus.
