Student Profile


Name: Meagan

Home Town: Cannon Falls, MN

Major: Art Graphic Design


Interests: I love sports - watching or playing them! I like being active, but don't have a problem lounging around and watching TV.

Why did you choose Stout? It was one of the schools I liked that specialized in Art and I felt coming to Stout would give me a valuable education. It's also only an hour and a half away from my hometown.

I would recommend this learning community because college is such a change from living at home and going to high school. Being in a learning community helps you meet new people and they will be in some of your classes too so you'll know a few friendly faces. It definitely helps you become more comfortable in this new environment.
