‘Hands-on Is All and Everything We Do’

A UW-Stout Photo Essay Collection: Faculty and students share their lab, studio and Stout Core experiences
September 22, 2023

When we ask our students why they chose UW-Stout, an overwhelming number of them say, “For the hands-on experience.” 

We are a university of hands-on learners, researchers, designers and doers. With three times as many labs and studios than traditional lecture halls, our students Do More on Day One. That’s what Wisconsin’s Polytechnic University is all about.

To see what we mean, join us on visual journies through our labs, studios and Stout Core experiences to discover why faculty and students are Stout Proud that "hands-on is all and everything we do."
