Join us for the fall student org officer training. 13 different breakout sessions will be presented on a variety of topics and resources. All org officers are encouraged to attend, and at least one from each org must attend as part of org re-registration. Those who are looking to start a new org are welcome to attend.



Get ready for RENAI-STOUT, our Homecoming 2023 theme! To learn more about how to participate, attend our informational meeting during the Leadership Summit from 8:10-8:40pm in Willow/Walnut. Note that you must attend an informational meeting to receive the registration forms. You do not have to be part of a student organization to participate in Homecoming, all you need is a minimum of 5 UW-Stout students to make a team! Two or more groups or organizations can also partner-up for the entirety of Homecoming Week. Here is a list of events happening during Homecoming Week that you can choose to participate in or attend as well:

  • Starting October 1, purchase a Homecoming t-shirt from the Student Center (Color = $11 or B/W = $9 – can use at the Tie Dye Extravaganza on 10/6!)

There are also volunteer shifts available for set-up and cleanup. Participants will get a free t-shirt and be able to sample the meals they are packing for others.

Individuals wishing to register for more than one timeslot must select the number of timeslots they'd like in the quantity field before registering. You'll then be prompted to select a timeslot for each ticket.

If you wish to register as a group, each member of your group must reserve their own ticket and be sure to pick the same timeslot. Space is limited in each session, so we suggest that your group registers early as we are unable to hold spaces. Groups should only register for one timeslot to provide opportunities for other students and groups.
