UW-Stout Bookstore

So, we all know about UW-Stout’s bookstore, right? Wrong. After asking around campus, I found out that some people have actually never been inside the bookstore! Most people think that it only has UW-Stout-brand clothes and a few supplies. Well, they have way more items in that tiny shop than you’d think. Ladies, did you know that you [...]


Fashion Without Fabric

I can’t imagine wearing an outfit that doesn’t consist of some type of fabric, but 3D Design students had the challenge of designing, constructing, and modeling outfit creations that could consist of anything but fabric. On Saturday, April 11th, design students showed off their hard work on the runway in the Great Hall of the [...]

Uncommon Commons Eats: Hummus Schmeer

As the weather warms up, I start to reconsider all of the cheesy fries and burritos I've made myself. This generally leads to me craving something healthy, yet hearty.

A Green House for Blue Devils

She's majoring in Environmental Science, which uses the greenhouse frequently for Botany labs. Miranda's favorite plant is the Bromeliad, because there are millions of species [...]


Family Weekend

Each year, University of Wisconsin-Stout hosts a weekend of family and fun. Family Weekend was April 10–12 and it is always a great time because many orgs and groups on campus plan to have their events all within a three day period. So, campus gets a bit hectic. There is University Theatre's Musical, Fashion Without Fabric, a jazz concert, and [...]


Uncommon Common’s Eats: Fireside Café

Alright UW-Stout, time for some wisdom. I’ve done a lot of eating at North Point and Merle Price Commons, but I haven’t shown you what the rest of campus has to offer, so today, we diversify this blog! There are a lot of eating options on campus, but if you go up the stairs in the MSC [...]
