The campus is a bit on the smaller side, making for a closer community! It feels very safe and homely to be there. It's easy to navigate and has plenty of on-campus job opportunities, as well as great resources for internships and co-ops. Overall great instructors and people. Dorms are rather small, though.

The University of Wisconsin Stout was not my first choice of schools, but it ended up being the one that I fell in love with. The professors I have had so far have been incredibly caring for my well-being on top of caring about my school work. That was a huge help on my well-being knowing that I had multiple people checking up on my mental health while being so far from home. The facilities are above average and are being renovated for future student use in nearly all aspects-- dorms, dining hall, gym, you name it! The campus itself is extremely beautiful and full of history. Along with the history of the college, the city of Menomonie is a treasure to explore! The Mabel Tainter Center is by far my favorite building to have been given the privilege to tour. The city is truly a gem in my eyes, although I have not have a lot of time to explore it yet, I still have three years left to do so! I have thoroughly enjoyed my first year here at Stout!
Everyone here is really nice, the professors are great and knowledgeable, the food is decent and there’s lots of events and free music. The dorms are alright, facilities are clean. Overall I’m having a really good experience here and it’s cheaper than a lot of other schools and there’s something for everyone here at Stout!
