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

The first priority is to figure out which schools have the program that the student wants to go into. Then you find all the colleges that apply to that program and choose from there. Certain schools are stronger in some areas and weak in others so reasearch will help. If the student is undecided I recomend attending a local college at first to save money while they figure out what they want. Then they can go off to a bigger school. I also recomend not choosing a school that the students friends are going to. Or don't let that be the only reason they choose that school. You make so many new friends that you might not end up hanging out with the high school friends at all. When you first arrive there are so many activities to attend where you can get to know your classmates and floormates for the year. Getting out there and not being shy, while still being yourself, is the biggest recommendation I have for incoming students. Just have fun and don't stress out! College is about starting over almost and living your life the way YOU want to live it.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Anyone can attend this school. They just have to make sure that they are willing to work hard to get good grades. Teachers expect a lot from you; you're not in high school anymore. If you work hard and don't procrastinate you can get good grades and still have fun on weekends with the many friends you will make on campus.

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

Some good advice is to go on campus visits while students are still on campus to get a good sence of how the students are at the school. I think the people at a school make the school, meaning if you have good people around you at a school than your time at school will be a lot more enjoyable then if everyone pretty much sticks to themselves. If there is a choice when you get to school live in the dorms because there are alot of oppertunities to meet new people. While at school you should also get involved in clubs and sports because there are alot of people with the same views and hobbies as you and they make great freinds.

What's unique about your campus?

I believe the bst thing about UW-Stout is the people. People at UW-Stout are very freindly and work togather very well. The teachers also assign alot of group projects to get students to meet other people in the classroom. Also there are alot of clubs to get involved with and meet new people who have the same hobbies as you.

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

The worst thing about UW-Stout would be how little there is to do around town. The nearest larger city is about twenty minutes away where there is alot to do for fun and the Twin Cities are about an hour away and there is alot to do there also. Also alot of students go home on the weekends and there is very little to do when people are not here to do things with.

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

It's important to visit the school so that you can get a feel for the campus. When I visited UW Stout, I immediately felt at home. I knew it was the place for me. You need to make sure that the size of the campus and the size of the classes meet your needs. No matter where you go, there is going to be an initial shock of being independent and being away from home, so it's best to pick a place that you are comfortable with. Make sure the school has your major of choice as well as a few other majors that you are interested in because no matter how dead set you think you are on your major, you may decide that you don't like it, and it is a lot easier to switch majors at a school that it is to switch schools and start all over again with making friends and becoming familiar with the area.

What kind of person should attend this school?

People should attend Stout if they learn best with hands on activity. Small class sizes. Good relationships with professors. Professors care about students.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

I really enjoy the community of Stout, you go to class and on the way you see 10 people you know. The environment is very comfortable and enjoyable. It is a school that is not overwhelming, but you really take out what you should from college. I love the teachers, they are all very recognized and devoted to thier job, I would recomend this school to anyone. (I have) Not only do you meet life long friends, but you get life long skills to ensure a successful future.

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

Overall just find out what you want to get out of college. Do you want a big or small community? What is your major? Where should you go to learn as much as you can about your major. Find the strong points of a college. Don't work around the college, make the college work around you. And most importanly have fun doing it, college is one of the most unforgetable years of your life.

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

Check out lots of schools, even if you are only slightly interested, check it out, you may be surprized by what you like. Once you are at a school which has the right fit for you, get involved! Are there any organizations that fit with your major, groups you are interested in, even study groups or people that you live with? Friends are what save you from yourself and your school work, so you dont get so caught up that you miss "the best 4 years of your life." You may be surprized by who you meet and how close of friends you become. Now don't get me wrong, school work comes first, but you need to have a little bit of fun in your life too!

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

i wished i would have known more about what my major involved more. Like what classes were required for gen eds and what technical courses i would need to take.

What kind of person should attend this school?

friendly, social, out-of-the-box people with inovative ideas, and those who are not afriad of technology and the direction it is taking.

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

Students: Find a school that fits you. Look for a school that has an awesome program in your major area of study. Don't worry about where your friends are going. College is going to be your home for the next four years so you need to be happy and feel comfortable on campus. Make sure you tour lots of colleges and apply to lots to leave your options open. Talk to lots of people on campus when you tour and ask lots of questions. See if the people there really care about you or if you are just a number to them. Look for schools that are welcoming and friendly. Parents: Ask lots of questions and try and find out as much information about the school as possible. Don't try and force your child into going to a school that they don't want to go to. You can try and help them figure out and eliminate choices but ultimately remember that it should be their decision because they are going to be living there and be part of that community for the next four years.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

How friendly everyone is. The people are wonderful!

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

I think that the biggest thing for those looking at colleges is to thoroughly research the schools. It is not about what the dorm room looks like, it is about the classroom focus and the placement rates. You can make your own fun based on your interests, but you can't change the goal of the classes and the school's focus. Do your research!

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Those that are undecided in their degree program.

In order to make the most of the college experience you cannot let the little things get to you. You have to learn to see the bigger picture. Pick a school that you know you can focus at, not one to party at because you are here for an education, not to party. You know you are at the right college when you love telling people about where you go and you actually do not want winter vacation to come because you love where you are so much. I am always ecstatic to come back after breaks. You have to give things a chance and if you are not happy you can always change to be happy and succeed.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

I brag about how we do not have to pay for text books.

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

The advice I give students and parents is to tour the schools that are applied to, because you should get the feel of the campus and make sure you are comfortable there before you choose it. I also will say that they should look into the organizations offered and also look into what the campus does for students when it comes time to find an internship or graduate. Going to a school where there is no help offered with internships and job placement may be difficult, because sometimes looking for that stuff on your own may be hard and take a lot of time out from focused on coursework. To make the most out of a college experience, I would say that a student should make sure they have everything they need when they move in, so they are comfortable. I also would urge students to go out and meet new people, and join organizations that pertain to who they are, what they are interested in, or what they are going to school for. I also would give the advice and say to make school the number one priority, with social life and having fun second.

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

I wish I would have known the work load involved and that I should take my schoolwork more seriously, and not my social life.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about my school is the amout of work I get with my upper level classes. It is hard to work 20+ hours a week plus do so much schoolwork. Also, as an underclassmen the most frustrating thing was the competition in certain classes. As an art/design major I had come into the program with very little drawing, painting, etc. skills. Being in classes where this comes second nature to other students is very frustrating being a first time learner.
