Overall Experience: Theres good and bad parts of this school. The diversity is poor, and most people are from small towns so if you are not small town it can be difficult to mix in. If you take the time to get involved, there are some wonderful events you could have the chance to be involved in.Theres is great underground music scene here, and that is probably the best part of stout. If your looking for a fun town this is not the place for you. If i had to choose again, i would not chose stout.

Overall Experience: registering for classes is a long and painful process if you are on the later end of registering, because they do it in a order from upper class men to sports people, to honors students to declared majors and then undeclared majors.

College Student

Overall Experience: I think that Stout has great art and design programs.

Athletics: Sports aren't really a big deal here.

College Student

Off-Campus Housing: The off campus is much cheaper than the dorms which is nice.

2 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: All there is in town(walking distance) is pizza places and coffee shops.

3 College Student

Administration: There is a Tabaco free policy, but theres no visual enforcements of this. a large portion of the students smoke and smoke on campus, usually in inconvenient places.

College Student

Scholarships: Stout does not give scholarships to freshman students entering, because of the low price of tuition.

College Student

Party Scene: As far as activities are concern around the town, there is nothing but partying. The party scene is very big. Therefore, if your not into the party scene really, theres not a whole lot to do here. Although organizations do try to hold events on weekends for people, but often in the middle of the semester the events start to die out a little.

Campus Food: For the price of the meal plan, it is very affordable and if you switch up your lines everyday its not so bad. also there is one line that changes every meal.

Campus Housing: I would say the dorms here will be as good as you decide to make them. They are pretty good about keeping it clean, some dorm buildings are older than others, and some are remodeled. I think that if you decide to go to housing events and meet people on your floor, the dorms aren't all that bad! they aren't the most spacious but they make up for it with spaces in the basement for people to work. Also the RA's and Hall Directors are very willing to help you out with whatever you have going on if you have any issues.

Off-Campus Housing: All of the houses are very old but live-able. Many of the houses are not up to code but many of the landlords are good friends with the inspectors so.... yeah you see where that's going. The cost is really not bad at all compared to other college towns so that is a plus and you find ways around the rickety things in your house! Availability gets scarce... everyone signs their leases for June back in September and since one of the dorm buildings is no longer available there's more students seeking housing. Landlords are also sticklers about how many people are on the lease vs. in the house so that gets tricky especially since there's little to no other options in students price ranges. Parking depends on your landlord. I see a lot of houses with a lot next to or behind the house for all of the cars, but some houses just have a driveway and street parking. Safety is kind of up in the air. The houses are old and it IS a college town so you never know what to expect. The school does have an off campus housing website and also a housing fair every year which is good.

Off-Campus Dining: It all depends on what you want out of your dining experiences. If you want healthy options, you might just want to go to Marketplace and make your food at home. If you just want awesome, greasy food then you're in the right place. There's pizza joints that deliver until late hours of the night which is great for those nights you get back from the bars and your starving. Our Burger King is also open 24/7 on the weekends so that's great. (It's a little out of the way though...) Away from campus are more sit down restaurants and fast food so that gets tricky if you don't have a car to get there. I personally am not aware of any student discounts anywhere unfortunately.

Administration: Personally, I've never had a problem with any specific policies.

Scholarships: I guess I'm not 100% sure how to answer this question? The financial aid office did help me with resources on loans but that's about it. I took out a loan through Sallie Mae and they did the rest.

4 College Senior

Party Scene: I'm honestly not going to go too in depth on this because it has nothing to do with technology. I wasn't a huge house party person so I'm honestly not sure where the "best" parties are. I think they can be great for socializing especially since it's a small school. Other than that, the bar scene can be fun too when you're of age.

Campus Food: If you like trying a lot of different things - different things as in combining different foods - commons can be okay. A lot of people tend to stick to the same things so they say that the options get old fast, which they can. Yet somehow you miss them when you try to eat other places! But every couple of weeks the dining centers do have special dinner nights where different things are served like fajitas, steak nights, etc.

Campus Housing: My first year I had a roommate and space was tight, but bearable. I didn't get very involved because my significant other lived off campus and I was often there. My second year I had a single room in JTC and I loved it! I would definitely recommend paying for a single room if you like your space. I made so many friends in JTC I actually almost cried when I moved out. It was just like a little family! The amenities are pretty good I'd say. There's vending machines in every building as well as laundry facilities in every basement. There's also an online website where you can check what machines are open so you don't have to drag all of your stuff down there for nothing. So that's wonderful! Food options are usually close by with a good amount of options! There's also several pizza joints in town that deliver pizza and are pretty fast. The housing process itself was extremely easy!

Athletics: Students go to sporting events if they are really into it (which not many are) or if they have a friend playing. Our teams do alright but there is a reason that we are Division III. School spirit though is fairly good... It isn't so much for sports or talked about much for that matter but there is almost a subtle agreement amongst students to wear school spirit almost daily. The athletic facilities are sub par, it gets the athletes to where they need to be in order to perform but non-athletes have to pay for a membership in order to lift weights. However the pool and indoor track (as well as the basketball courts and such in the MPR) are open to anyone.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life isn't that big on campus. I mean yeah they throw great parties but that is about all you hear the Greek's doing on campus. Greek life isn't talked about much on campus because no one pressures you into joining, it is just a good way to meet more people. Nobody looks down on you if you don't join one.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: It's Wisconsin so it's pretty hard not to hear about parties. A lot of people go out but some people also stay in their dorms to party. It is never a good idea to announce on social media where parties are because cops will bust them so it is best to make a lot of friends and stay in touch with them about the social life. The party scene is a great way to unwind and forget about the week or any worries.

Off-Campus Dining: There are some really great restaurants that are family owned and you get a pretty good bang for your buck. The chain restaurants are the usual but they don't stay open 24 hours. I'm not aware of any student discounts but I don't eat off campus often. Menomonie Family Restaurant is a great place to get breakfast food at any point during the day and Dickey's BBQ is so delicious!

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There is a Facebook page that you can join where people discuss needed housemates and info about the housing and cost. Stout has a meeting for people wishing to live off-campus to help find places to live that are affordable. I personally live on-campus so I don't know of the average costs of living off-campus but there are many houses within walking distance of classes. Most houses have driveways that you can park in but they aren't made of concrete or asphalt, they are usually just gravel. Many of the houses are older but they are still in livable condition.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: When you fill out FAFSA they give you a decent amount of financial aid. When you apply depending on your grades (if they are good enough) and your financial situation they will provide In-State tuition for Out-of-state students. I.e. My gpa for high school was 3.24 and my family isn't in financial struggle but I have an older brother in college as well as a younger brother who attends a private high school. They thankfully let me an (Ohioan) attend while receiving In-State tuition.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
