4 College Sophomore

Computers: Unless you're an art major you won't be getting a Mac. So bring your own computer or get stuck with an old pc.

2 College Sophomore

Weather: Snow and rain most of the winter with freezing temperatures. Stout does NOT cancel class if it's 30 below. So good luck, you'll enjoy freezing while walking to class.

1 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The financial aid office is a joke. Don't even bother going up to talk to the front desk workers, they're degrading and RUDE. Schedule an appointment with your financial aid adviser/counselor to get the best results. But... don't count on getting any help other than loans with high interest rates. Stout has a scholarship program however they give few people multiple awards and it's very unfair how they are dispersed.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Overall Stout has average looking people. There is a huge amount of diversity in style. Most art students are very alternative and you can definitely tell who they are just by the way they dress.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: If you're underage, the best places to go are the frats. You will need a way in though because they don't accept just anyone.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: If you want to go anywhere off campus you will need a car or a friend with a car.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The health clinic on campus has very limited and unrealistic hours. They are open maybe 4 and a half hours a day (usually when people have classes). It's a hike to get near it no matter if you're on North or South campus. I haven't heard of any good reviews from it either. Prices are rather high compared to going to a local pharmacy like Walgreens.

1 College Sophomore

Parking: I have to pay $220 for my car to sit in a lot. Most of the time there are no spots remotely close to my dorm and I end up walking 5+ blocks back to my room from where I had to park my car. It's very inconvenient.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I would definitely rate the dining better if it had a Chipotle or a KFC to spice things up. We have the same old McDonalds, Burger King, Taco Bell, etc. but nothing that sticks out. There are some nice restaurants close to campus that offer vegan and vegetarian courses however they aren't what I would consider "cheap".

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Large amount of places right up the road. Requires a car to get there during the winter though.

Computers: Free printing, just bring your own paper.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Dorm life is awesome, people are really great.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: A lot of alcohol consumption, not much drugs.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: People are very social and interactive.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: The parties are very lively and everyone goes out.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Small town movie theater and bowing alley are fun.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Stout is the 2nd most arrested for drugs and alcohol in the country

3 College Freshman

Diversity: There aren't to many but the school is very accepting.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Most houses are not put together well and are in poor conditions.

4 College Freshman

Majors: The art program here is great

College Freshman

Majors: I have yet to be informed with any information that goes for something I would get into focusing on my future career. They worry about the older students more which is understandable.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

When Stout students walk across the stage during their commencement ceremony, they are filled with emotions and memories, feelings of excitement about the future and sadness for a journey coming to an end. More than anything, UW-Stout provides opportunity and community. Once you set your roots at Stout, you'll never want to leave. The perfect size of the student body allows students to build a community of friends that last a lifetime. Community is built in many different ways and venues—the classroom between a class and the instructor, in the residence halls between residents, at an on-campus job between coworkers, and between teammates on an intramural team. These are just a few ways that students make connections with each other, as well as with people within the Menomonie community.

Stout provides a world of opportunity in and out of the classroom. Students have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with their professors, to start and lead their own campus organizations, to take their education abroad, to manage a restaurant on campus, to challenge themselves, to apply theories, to reach new heights on the climbing wall, and to make decisions for the entire campus by participating in student government. The opportunities that students take advantage of at Stout will lead to even greater opportunities after graduation. Attending UW-Stout is not just an education; it is an experience.
