Good food, easy access to textbooks and computers, a wide variety of niche majors and concentrations, and a wide variety of clubs and fraternities/sororities. The newer dorms are much nicer and more liveable than the older legacy buildings, but if you have an art or engineering major you won't have to spend much time in your dorm anyways. They have a good system of support in terms of academic support, but they usually need you to reach out first. There is a wide variety of foundation scholarships available every year through a single campus-wide application which is very nice for easy grants.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There has been some unreliability with the food recently, as they don't pay a living wage to their food staff, so few students are doing on-campus work at the moment.

Hiking And Backpacking



I like how open and free the campus feels, but this college is very theoretical physics-based. The professors (besides the Statics ones) feel very knowledgeable and are always willing to help

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The tuition increases and all of the fees included in tuition, on top of some professors. Make sure to use RateMyProfessor. In the last years of college here, many courses are Fall or Spring only so missing one class can set you a year behind

Olivia Ellis
Gender Studies



The staff at UW Stout is always ready to help you and they want to see you succeed.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The food science department prepares its students in all aspects of food safety but we do not do much in regards to learning different cooking techniques.

Melody Berg



So far, my education at UW-Stout has been a good experience. I have liked most of my classes and professors. There will always be a couple of professors that aren't great, but for the most part, they are helpful and care about your success. The food at the dining halls is usually pretty good, but there could definitely be some improvements made.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Sometimes, scheduling classes can be challenging because some classes may be only offered at one time and classes fill up pretty quickly. The food in the dining halls could be a bit better. The freshman dorms that haven't been renovated aren't the best, but they're not terrible. They aren't as nice as the newly renovated dorms.

I have found Stout to be very fun to be at, especially when in a good bit of extracurricular activities and keeping atop things such as school work and personal needs. Finding a balance is especially crucial, and making sure to ask for help is always easy as there are a ton of people meant to help students become acclimated and with finding the right career path.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I think the most trying thing can be that some teachers are really aggravating and can therefore have very trying and stressful classes, but handling it is a matter of keeping your cool and just getting through it.

Graeson Smith
Music Composition
Music Production
Food And Eating



Many of the teachers are very understanding and flexible. You are provided a laptop (based on your program, either HP or Apple) and textbooks are included in tuition. Costs are kept pretty low while providing a great learning experience.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

As it is in northern Wisconsin, it is cold 3/4s of the school year.
