4 College Freshman

Athletics: Teams aren't great, students still get involved though.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: No one really gets into sports or school spirit here. It's sad.

3 College Student

Athletics: Overall the athletics scene I think is subpar. There is basically no fan support at any football games. People show up but don't show any school spirit at all because our team never wins.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: People love to be involved

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I am apart of the ultimate frisbee intramural sport and it is a lot of fun. There is double the amount of members then there were last year which makes it a better verity to meet more people. Not everyone can make it to practice or all of the tournaments do to school and work. Other school sports vary when it comes to school spirit. I personally have yet to go to a football game but I have cheered my friends on at track meets.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

At Stout, intramurals and other recreational activities are far more popular than full-on athletics. Frankly, we don't even fill up our stadium for the Homecoming football game. As a D-3 school, athletics is not a huge deal, but, for some, the varsity sports are worth watching. Tickets are free to most events.

Intramurals are huge at Stout. More than 25 percent of students participate in more than 15 sports offered throughout the year. You don't have to be any good to play intramurals; however, the competition can get fierce during the playoffs. If you're good enough, you will win the coveted intramural championship T-shirt. There are coed, men's, and women's teams for most sports, which range from your regulars like sand volleyball, flag football, and basketball to the more unusual like dodgeball and bean bags. For those who still want to compete against other universities but don't want the time commitment of athletics, students have the option of joining one of 26 sports clubs. Some clubs are competitive, and others are purely recreational. Current clubs include, but are not limited to, the Alfresco Outing Club, bowling, boxing, cycling, disc golf, figure skating, lacrosse, rugby, soccer, paintball, running, longboarding, swimming, Ultimate Frisbee, and water skiing.

Most Popular Sports
Basketball, ice hockey, and football are by far the most popular sports for spectators. The stands can fill up for basketball games, and the annual Homecoming game is very popular for football.
School Spirit
Most students are proud of attending UW-Stout. Some link school spirit to athletics, but at Stout there doesn't seem to be much correlation. Students regularly wear Stout apparel, and on-campus events are heavily attended.
Getting Tickets
It is simple to get tickets to most on-campus sporting events. In fact, most events are free, and you don't even need a ticket—just swipe your student ID at the door!
Best Place to Take a Walk
The Red Cedar State Trail and the shorter Stokke Trail, located along the scenic Red Cedar River, are popular amongst students and the community. The trailhead, which is just west of campus, has plenty of parking.
