It's the word we hear over and over again from employers, alumni, and the community. It's how they describe UW-Stout graduates: ready. This is a hallmark of our students, because it's exactly what they are. Beyond our 45 unique majors, explore over 140 student organizations, 50 intramural and sport clubs, and hundreds of on-campus jobs.

Just Across the Border

Menomonie may be a small town, but we're not far from the big city. It's just a one-hour drive from here to St. Paul—far enough to feel some independence... yet not too far for an emergency laundry day. Plus, with state reciprocity agreements, Minnesota residents can attend UW-Stout and pay the same tuition that you would for an in-state Minnesota university. This can result in a savings of thousands of dollars over your college career! (Trust us, your adult self will thank you later.)
