What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Take your time, enjoy it, have fun. You won't get another opportunity like it again. Realizing that this is such an incredible opportunity (and its all yours!) is the first step to, well, everything! The people you meet, the adventures you create, and the memories you make are those that you will never forget and never be able to re-live. Choose a college for YOU. It will all too soon become your home and your refuge! Get involved, try new things, and be exactly who you want to be. You are in the drivers seat to your life, and it'll be an amazing ride... :)

What kind of person should attend this school?

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Make sure you like the atmosphere and size of the school your looking at otherwise i feel that your college experiance will be what you make of it. Take any oppurtunity to meet new people and make new friends. Keep up with your classes but make time to have friends and a life other than homework. These are some of the most important years of your like so far, so make the most of them.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I like almost everything about Stout, I just wish I would have known that there wasn't an intermural broomball league.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

In order to find the right college for you or your child it is best to tour the campus for the ones you are interested in and see how they feel to the prospective student and see that it fits their needs and wants. After you have selected a college to attend I highly recommend getting involved in extra curricular activities such as the Inter-Residence Hall Association or a club that is related to your program. Being involved on campus helps provide yourself with valuable tools to help yourself and others through college and after college. By being involved you learn how to appropriately manage your time which is a vital skill to have for the rest of your life. You also learn to be more people oriented and work well with others which working with others is something that comes up often in the workplace. Another helpfull asset to being involved is making connections. You never know if somone you know can help you land your dream job by them knowing the right people. Make sure to stay focused on your studies and don't take on too much which can be easy to do for some.

What kind of person should attend this school?

People who love interactive and engaging classes as well as hands on demostrations and real life examples should attend Stout. Those who want to get the best training they can so they feel truly prepared to be in a real job in their career field.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who does not want real life experiences for their career should not attend this college. UW-Stout provides real life training for students as well as requires an internship prior to graduation which proves to be very helpful.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Take your time, find the one that fits you. There are many posibilits, but there is one that will fit just like a glove. College should be one of the best times of your life, finding the right one makes all the difference. Be open to new ideas and things. College is not high school, nore should it be. Its a time for personal growing, learning who you are. Step out of your box, you will never have an oportunidy like this again. Above all, enjoy it. It goes by faster then you think!

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

It is a small town, there is not much to do on the weekends besides party or go to sporting events.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

Stout is Wisconsin's Polytechnic University, priding itself on a career-oriented education and providing immediate job placement after graduation to over 90% of its graduates.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

My advice to prospective students and parents when looking at potential colleges would be to ask the following five questions. 1) Is it close enough to home that the student can come home for holidays and emergencies, yet far enough away that they will not be coming home every weekend? 2) Does the university offer an academic curriculum that enriches the students' learning both during school and after? 3) Is there a variety of extra-curricular activites offered that interest the student? 4) Are the academic buildings in close proximity to where the student will be living? 5) Did the counselors, students, and faculty we met with on tours give us a positive impression? If the answer to all of the above is YES, then that university is definitely a place to consider. Above all, to make the most of your college experience, you have to make it your home. Be involved - this is the best way to meet the people who will become your lifelong friends. Take pride in your campus community - attend athletic events, sit in on a lecture, explore the community. Get to know your professors, too - do all this and you will fit right in!

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing about UW-Stout is its location. There is not much to do in Menomonie and all that there is to do is located on the other side of Lake Menomin about 2 miles from campus.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

The University of Wisconsin Stout is my home away from home, not too big and not too small, helpful, and very different from normal four year Universities based on the majors offered.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are helpful, fun, always looking to do something new and exciting and my family away from family.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

My best advice to parents and selecting a college for their child would be to make sure your child is going there for the right reasons. Joining a boyfriend or girlfriend, for a sport, or because a sibling goes there are not nesasarly good reasons to attend a certain school. Also know that changing majors is not a big deal at all, so many people do it at least once. As for making the most of your college experience, two words: GET INVOLVED! What ever it is, a club, sport, or sorority/fraternity, joining something extra gets you involved on capus and provides many leadership and resume building opportunities that will benifit you for the rest of your life. Also joining a student organization is great for meeting people and keeping yourself busy with that something extra. Have the time of your life! Four years goes so fast!

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

To anyone who is looking into going to college I would just like to say just remember that although college is a time to have fun and meet new people, it is also a time to work hard and start to realize that this is real life now. Be sure to look at a few different schools rather than just one so you see a variety of places and what they have to offer. Also be sure to look earlier rather than later because you want to have time to prepair for the school that you choose to go to and to be sure that you have everything that you need both physically and mentally. But more than anything else, relax, it may seem stressful at first but everyone adapts to their school and you will meet many new people and have many new friends to help you along the way!!

What's unique about your campus?

The thing that I consider to be the best about my school is the friendships I have been able to obtain with a variety of different people. The people were at Stout are very friendly and very open to any sort of person. There are a lot of different activities to do on and off campus which almost everyone at the school is involved in.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

I would suggest that anyone who needs to be in a big city around a lot of people should not attend Stout. It is a smaller university and much more community based than other schools. Also the surrounding town isn't very large at all so I would recommend that people that dont like that should not come to Stout/

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

It doesn't really matter how many schools you apply for. The best thing would be to visit all of the campuses that you are interested and find out what they are specifically known for. Make sure that it is a place that your student will actually like attending and feels that it is the right place for them.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A person that is not wanting to be at school because obviously it is important to want to do good and pay attention.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Having to take very unneccesary classes required for my major.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Find out what you want after you graduate, think about what kind of study will help with that, find a school offering that type of program and find one that you like. I think the most important tihng to consider when looking at a school is finding a town and campus that you like that will offer and deliver the education that you are interested in.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

Residence halls are required the first two years you attend. I think that this is for controle and not very helpful. Quiet hours are good because most students are uneffected. However, some students, myself included, follow a later more night orented lifestyle and have to worry about being told to be quiet. Because we live with so many people this is a good policy but living off campus allows for more freedom to do what we want and be more comfortable doing activities like playing the guitar or watching tv at late hours.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Some students seem to not want to be at college at all. For whatever reason they come anyway but don't enjoy it and do poorly most of the time. If a student enjoys learnign and can grasp the concepts presented in cources school will be easy and fun.
