Quinn Wallace - 10/23/2020
Degree: Film Production
Graduation Year: 2022
"Absolutely terrible time. The head of the Video Production degree is incapable of doing his job properly. He prevented students from getting above a C in his classes, forcing us to lose GPA even if we got an A in every other class we had. On top of this, NO ONE would address this issue. Head of Communication Department? Nope. Dean of Students? Not them either. Chancellor of the entire school? Absolutely useless. Nothing was ever done, and I lost an entire semester's worth of tuition for something I couldn't control because of it. If you're planning on being taught at Stout, good luck. You'll be better off watching YouTube videos on the subject you want to learn, because the staff and faculty here don't care about you, your education, or your well being."

"The university of Wisconsin is a university has great teachers. While attending there students feel like they are a part of a tight nit family. It has that warm welcome atmosphere. If you are a student that likes a small community atmosphere with good individual student attention from staff, University of Wisconsin-Stout is good choice."

Degree: Industrial Design
Graduation Year: 2013
"The Industrial Design program at UW-Stout just gets the job done. The instructors are nice and work hard, but you learn basic skills that won't get you very far in the industry unless you do your own work beyond school. Upon graduating and starting my first job, I realized that I was only prepared to do esthetic iterations in the real world. If you want a more intellectually-stimulating job that involves research and ergonomics, then I would recommend checking out another school. The network that you have access to through UW-Stout is also not that great. It can easily get you a job at an industrial company somewhere in Wisconsin, but again, if you want a more glamorous job at a design firm, then I would go elsewhere. All that said, UW-Stout has had a few students that have gone above and beyond expectations and got jobs at reputable firms, but that does not happen very often and is usually a result of the student's hard work outside of the program."

"I am very pleased with my experience at Stout. These are genuine structured classes, taught on line. Once you get in the groove, it is easy to keep the rhythm going. Professors were available, helpful, and informative. The administrative staff is wonderful, always with quick and personal responses."

"It was a very tech based college, you get laptops as mandatory for all degrees and have internet available all over campus. Very nice labs and equipment, the teachers almost all have several years worth of professional experience before becoming teachers so they really have a lot of practical knowledge. The school is continuously trying to improve its faculties and stay up to date on technologies which is very nice."

Degree: Nutrition
Graduation Year: 2000
"The school is mediocre. Even a elementary school kid will ace the Courses. The standard of teaching is low level. The masters degree was a waste of my time and money. It did not help me in my professional career. Save your money and Find a reputed school. What is portrayed on the website is not what u get at all. It's a joke nothing else."

"UW-Stout is a wonderful balance of hands-on learning, niche majors, and small class sizes in a delightful town in western Wisconsin. I appreciated the practical approach to teaching/learning as opposed to focusing on the theoretical side."
