3 College Student

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

2 College Freshman

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.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I participate in the varsity volleyball program as a player. They have very nice facilities and the coaching is fantastic

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The sports here at Stout aren't the best, but they are fun to go and watch and they are enjoyable for the social aspect.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: There is really good fan support for all of the sports teams.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
