"The University has impacted my academic success in many ways. The first is the professors have field experience and that is the class they are teaching. This is extremely beneficial to the students because those professors can make a direct correlation between what is going on in the field and what they are teaching in the classroom.
The second way the university has impacted my success is the relationships that I have developed with the professors. I have had multiple professors volunteer to help me in other classes to help me get a different view of the course material.
The third way is being involved with the SCA. I have been involved since I was a freshman, and I am so grateful I joined this club. The small jobs that we perform around the city of Menomonie have given me the chance to learn from the older students and teach the younger ones. The contractor presentations provide the students with another opportunity to network with professionals and ask specific questions to gain further knowledge to better their own future. These presentations helped me decide which path I wanted to go down. I chose the project manager path.
The career fair is the number one reason why I got a full-time job before graduation. The career fair got me connected with so many companies, it was hard to narrow my search. Without the career fair, finding a job would be a lot more stressful."

"The University of Wisconsin Stout was able to create many opportunities for me along my professional journey. From career fairs, scholarship opportunities, student organizations, competition teams and even simply the core classes provided through the program, I feel UW-Stout was successful in giving me the chance to build myself up with experience before heading out into the Construction Industry.
The relationship our Construction Program has with real-world industry members is what makes this program so strong and able to be accurate with how things are actually being done in Construction each new day. It is from this program that I was able to stand out to employers and find my success."
