Stout has been an interesting experience so far. I am surprised that I am enjoying my classes, they are very interesting and will help prepare me for my future career. I really like Stout's campus, and although Menomonie is a small town, there are some cool things to do. Being a freshman is difficult in general because you don't have any friends, so it's hard for me to say I love it here right now. But I think this is a good place, and over time I think I'll like being here more. They offer so many events and clubs, there's always something going on! Getting involved has helped me meet great people! Stout is a good college, even though it's not what I expected.

The housing here is expensive! For me it's over $600 a month, not including food. I will be living off campus next year if I can. Some halls here are really sketchy and crappy, especially north hall and south hall. Antrim and Froggatt are okay, but McCalmont and the north campus dorms are very nice. They're more expensive though. You can make the dorms work here for a year or two, but living off campus will really save you some money.

I absolutely love my first year college experience. I've made a ton of new friends. I'm on the UW stout dance team and love every single girl that is on it. It's like a family! Going to my classes there are tons of people in there to start meeting new people and making new friends, which is what I love. It's good to get into sports or clubs or anything like that to meet new people and make new friends. I wasn't really expecting the homework and studying to be kind of easier than I thought. It's super efficient, and I can actually do my homework whenever I want. I can't wait to finish here at UW-Stout!
