“I loved my prior school, but transferred because I wanted to change my major. The first time I was in Menomonie was move-in day and I felt instantly at home. I was on an all-transfer guys floor and we were all in the same boat. Next year I’ll be off campus but I’m living with three other guys from my floor. I love everything about Stout. The people, the teachers, the campus, the town — everything is perfect and I’d highly recommend for everyone to consider it for their college — especially if they don’t know what they want to do for a profession.”
