Britta HoreckI'm Britta, the Wisconsin Covenant Coordinator and First-Year Parent Liaison here at UW-Stout. Parents often have just as many questions and concerns as their first-year student. A student leaving home for the first time affects not only them but, the whole family. As you begin this journey, I hope that you can use this website as a resource to guide you along the way. 

For specific questions or concerns you can contact me at horeckb@uwstout.edu or by calling 715-232-3597.

Best Wishes,
Britta Miller

Are you missing your student yet? They have officially been at school for six months — that’s half a year without your student at home! Hooray! Some of you may be cheering as you have converted their bedroom into a yoga studio or den and are enjoying your time as empty nesters, while some of you are new to this experience. 

Whether you are seasoned or going through this for the first time, at some point over the last six months you have missed your student. Well, now is the time to put on your most embarrassing outfit, pile into the family car and hit the highway to Menomonie. We are happy to host you for our annual Family Weekend!
