The City of Puyallup is celebrating Pierce College’s contribution to the community during a special series of events during College Appreciation Week, taking place Oct. 2-8.

Throughout the week, the college will host a variety of events showcasing our more than 30 years of service to the Puyallup community.

Pierce College Puyallup’s signature event is “An Evening of Music at Pierce College,” on Wednesday, Oct. 6 from 5-6:30 p.m. in the Arts and Allied Health Building. Attendees will have the opportunity to listen to both live and pre-recorded instrumental student performances being held in several spaces throughout the building. Attendees will also have the opportunity to view one of the “We Are One” artwork pieces in our Fine Arts Gallery and learn more about the great programs Pierce College has to offer. Guests will also receive a to-go dessert from Crumbl Cookie to enjoy. For the safety of guests, COVID-19 safety protocols will be followed and masks are required.

Please RSVP for the event here.

As part of the College Appreciation Week festivities, the City of Puyallup will issue a proclamation celebrating Pierce College Puyallup and Washington State University, the two institutions of higher education located in Puyallup. The proclamation will be read during the Sept. 28 City Council Meeting.
