Every year students are given a chance to experience journalism through the University of Wisconsin-Stout’s student-led news source, Stoutonia.
As a member of Stoutonia, I have developed and experienced as an individual, while working with so many talented students. Each paper provides a chance to expose yourself to new information, events and interesting people around the community. Acquiring this knowledge is especially important in appreciating and understanding the local story.
Becoming a part of a team is always worthwhile. Collaborating and feeding off each other for constructive ideas, in the end, can only help build personal skills and social interaction.
Stoutonia is Hiring!
There are always positions to be filled. As of now, the following board positions are available (see link below for position descriptions):

Working and Collaborating
