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

If I could go back to the beginning of senior year in high school I would tell myself not to get senioritis. The first semester felt like every other one before it but when it came to semester two my motivation declined greatly. I’m not sure why but my mind just decided I was ready to be done with school. I had to really focus towards the end to maintain my 3.8 GPA. I think I would also tell myself to not let things stress me out so much. Applying to college, preparing for graduation, and keeping up with my course work took its toll on my stress level. I would tell myself to work hard but still take time to relax and not get caught up in the drama of life.

The people here are very welcoming and hard-working, and won't hesitate to make conversation.

Don't worry about gettin scared before you leave home. If you are living in the residence halls it is really easy to find friends, and that is what makes it fun. And don't worry about not seeing your family and friends from home as much, because there are plenty of breaks from school and opportunities to go home on the weekends.

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

By the time I had reached my senior year of high school, I was a walking label of every bad name I had ever been called by my peers. I was miserable, encased in self-loathing, and firmly convinced that I would never allow myself to continue my education at college. I was afraid that if I did, the bullying I had endured for twelve years would continue. I remained true to that fear for six years. If I, as my current self, had the opportunity to go back in time without causing irreparable damage to the continuum and speak to my seventeen year old self, I would tell her that where she is in her emotional state is okay. I would tell her that it’s okay to be angry because people were mean and cruel, and that it’s okay to take the time she needs to overcome her deeply ingrained fear of people before considering college. I would tell her that if she plunged herself into college before she was ready for it, that it would not fare well – but if she was patient with herself and allowed herself to heal, everything would end up being okay.

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

I would honestly find myself saying "Kisha its easier than you think"! I was so scared that I would not have enough time to do everything and get all that I needed done. It was so simple i did everything online I wish I would have did this sooner. I would tell myself how helpful the staff was and how they wanted me to pass not just for the grades but they really want better for me. How if i have any questions or if i need something the staff is able to help me day and night. I would tell me to go for it not to waste another moment.

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

If I could be someone else and talk to myself as a high school student I would tell myself to stay focus get good grades and pay attention in class and pass them because my grades will effect my in college ill have to retake anything I didn't do great in high schoo such as basic math and chemistry. Life is what you make it, if you start off on and good note and continue to do good at the end it will all pay off, you only get what you put into something.

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

Stop worrying! You don't have to have your whole future planned out yet. As long as you work your hardest, have fun, and you're kind to others, everything will fall into place. Don't spend some of the most exciting years of your life worrying about the little things, just enjoy the good and the bad that comes with this amazing experience in life.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

University of Wisconsin Stout is best known for being a poly-technic university. It is a school known to have possibly the widest variety of students in the state, due to it's broad range of majors. University of Wisconsin Stout is known for being hands-on and letting it's students be creative. It is also known for being very connected with businesses who tend to hire students when they graduate. Stout is great with helping students find careers they want to be in after they graduate.

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

What stood out most to me about University of Wisconsin Stout, is that it had so many majors that followed my interests. University of Wisconsin Stout has alot of majors that include management and i really liked that about Stout. One of the best things about Stout is that it provides laptops to every single student there. I thought that was really cool.

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

As a highschool senior, I was stressed out about everything. It scared me that college was so close and i would be away from home. It was also a huge worry to type essays for college and go on tours and figure out what major i wanted. Now that i have experienced the college life, i would go back and tell myself not to worry so much. I would say that the school I chose for myself was the perfect one and that everything ends up ok. I would also tell myself that I need to relax a little and take a little bit more time to enjoy the whole process of moving away and not worry about it so much. Everything ends up ok in the end.

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

UW-Stout is the best college for me because their Apparel Design and Development program is highly recognized by fashion companies around the world for teaching students valuable information and setting them up for success for any path they may take after they graduate.

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

Believe in yourself. Those are the first three words that would come out of my mouth if I had the opportunity to go back and talk to my high school senior self. The next ones would be just as challenging; do not let anyone make you doubt yourself and your abilities. I think something I truly could have learned before I started college was to believe I was in the right spot, to be myself, and show my family, friends, and most importantly, myself, that I can shine, and I do not have to be afraid of my future, because it will be what I make it. I would also remind geeky insecure Morgan that people change in short spans of time, and although her family loves her and misses her, they will learn to adapt and live without her. I would stress the importance of good academic standing and getting involved with anything she ever wanted to try! I would remind her of a very important prayer I hold dear to myself now; God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and the wisdom to know the difference.

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

This question is very difficult due to the fact that I love so many aspects of UW-Stout. The worst thing about it though, does not deal with the programs, curriculums, nor the teachers, but the location. The University of Wisconsin-Stout is in a very isolated town in northern Wisconsin. Therefore, there are limited things for college students to do around town, and it is much colder there than campuses further south. Most days and nights, the ghost town is not a problem because between classes and studying, I have no time for "fun."
