One important way we have found to assist your student during their first year is through involvement throughout the year. Basically, it is your awareness of how their first year is progressing and which questions to ask to properly gauge the adjustment that makes the difference. A simple phone call to inquire about some tests, a care package in the mail, or a card letting them know you are thinking about them could provide the support that is needed.
UW-Stout and University Housing is committed to its students and has developed an Adjustment Survey to allow families the opportunity to actively participate in the total success of their student’s first-year experience. The survey is designed to give you some insights into their experiences thus far and to allow you the chance to glean important information from them so that you can participate in their success at Stout.
