"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."

"I am currently enrolled in the graduate program for Food Science and Technology. The program is very nice - the professors all have Ph.Ds and have worked in the food science industry or done extensive research. The department is small, but you get to know your professors very well, and they seem to genuinely care about their students. There is plenty of opportunity to do your own research, plus you get to choose from a wide variety of interesting classes each semester. The program is certified by the Institute of Food Technologists, just like some of the bigger programs at Madison or the University of Minnesota. The one downside I would point out is that the program seems a little underfunded."

  • Degree: Industrial Design
"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."

"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."

"The campus is quite small, but ideal for someone who is looking forward to living this lifestyle for several years. Faculties and staff are relatively helpful and friendly. I am currently enrolled in the Entertainment Design program with a concentration in Comics and Sequential Art. The art and design faculties are knowledgeable and make themselves available for outside class student appointments. Incoming art students are required to take fundamental art and design classes, which prepares them for higher level courses. Art critiques are done often and professors encourage their students to discuss projects and make aesthetic suggestions. It is important to take these courses with an open mind; be open to trying new art-making methods and receiving constructive criticism about your work."

"It was a Master's program, yet the classes were at a middle school level. The final projects weren't even at a middle school level. It was kind of embarrassing, actually. I'm sure it's useful for someone, but it seemed like a community college in all honesty."

"The professors are extremely involved and have a great knowledge base in the field of counseling. The workload is manageable and expected for a graduate program. They tailor all of the classes towards practical information and try to make it relevant to the field of counseling."

"There are many great things about my program. The professors are helpful and knowledgeable, I am constantly learning new information and the class sizes are small, which is extremely conducive to learning. The cons as of right now are insignificant. I wish there were more opportunities to be involved that correlated with my school work load."
