I learned a lot about how to be more professional in many aspects as well as how to write a good scientific paper. As well as the various components that make a good scientist and the amount of time and effort it takes to be successful in whatever career path you choose.
The UW-Stout Environmental Science program helped me to stay on track to be able to graduate on time. I feel very prepared on my job searches thanks to all the knowledge I have gained from my classes. \\
I originally went to stout unsure of what I wanted to do. I then changed majors and entered the environmental science program. From there on out I felt like I had found where I was supposed to be. I enjoyed the professors, the students in the program, and the material taught. It’s been a great four years.
The Environmental Science program prepared me for the "real world".
The program prepared me to accomplish the tasks that employers is all different fields of science are looking for, from the lab to the field, I never felt unprepared.
The UW-Stout Environmental Science program prepared me for the natural resource field by providing me with knowledge and an abundance of opportunities to obtain hands-on experience both in the classroom and outside of it.
This program helped me realize what I wanted from my degree and career. I came in knowing that I wanted to be an active member within the environmental community, yet I had no real direction or focus and this program has helped remedy that. This program has positively affected not only my communication skills, but also given me the opportunity to break into the academic discourse surrounding the environmental community so that I feel more at home and centered then if I was an outsider looking in. Overall, this program has helped me become more communicative, social, hardworking and understanding, while also giving me the necessary tools to succeed in the environmental field.
The Environmental Science program at UW-Stout has offered so many opportunities that I would not have gotten elsewhere, allowed me hands-on learning which have benefited me as a student, a person, and as a future employee.
Stout's broad spectrum of classes/minors allows you to tailor your diploma to what you like to do. Adding GIS, Plant Science, Chemistry, or other minors to your degree can open up pathways that you weren't even aware of.
The environmental science program helped me be successful because it allowed for me to grow as a scientist and researcher. This program allowed for me to experience different opportunities that led me to what career I would want to be working in the future.
It transformed wonder into knowledge, that is all science is focused on. I learned that it’s not about why, but what in nature. I had always been the kid that wanders off into the woods on his own. Everything I've observed in life as far as the woods; I now have general to a good understanding of the processes involved. Primarily, the understanding of interactions in ecology has built a net for me to look at every time I go into the wilderness.
The Environmental Science program at Stout literally gave me everything I could have wanted. Personable professors, close-knit group of students that are all ambitious to learn something new, professional experience in class and in labs, and exploiting the passion that I have for the outdoors.
