Determined to return to his life, Joe teams up with a precocious soul, 22, who has never understood the appeal of the human experience.

UW-Stout COVID Update
Q. Is Athletics starting back up?
A. Winter sports competed on a limited basis, and spring sports are currently in their outdoor seasons. Streaming of all home contests is available online.
 
Q. If I’ve been vaccinated do I still have to test, mask, and practice social distancing?
A. It is very important that we all continue to mask, social distance, and avoid large groups during the final weeks of the semester, as per CDC guidance.
 
Q. What should I know about registering for fall classes?
A: It’s important! Registering for classes as early as you can helps ensure that classes do not appear as “low enrolled” and end up getting canceled. Also, Fall 2021 will see Stout returning to a more “normal” schedule in terms of the number of in-person classes. Reach out to your advisor if you have any questions. They are there to help. You can also find additional information on the Registration and Records website.
 
Q. Not having a spring break has been challenging for my mental health. What can I do to stay mentally healthy from now until the end of the semester?
 
A: Taking time to focus on your health and wellbeing is important in order to maintain your mental health. While everyone will benefit from different coping skills, what is important is that you take the time to get a break and recharge in this final month of the semester. This may include getting enough sleep, eating well, exercising, taking short breaks throughout the day, getting outside, connecting with friends and family, engaging in a hobby, meditation, taking a break from news or social media, creating a routine, etc. Try to pick at least one self-care activity to do each day, even if only for a few minutes.
 
Q: I want to talk to a counselor. How do I connect with the Counseling Center and what should I expect?
 
A: To schedule an appointment, you can either call 715-232-2468 or stop up to the Counseling Center located at 410 Bowman Hall. Your initial appointment will be scheduled for 30 minutes. The Counseling Center is currently providing confidential telehealth services, including individual, couples, and group counseling and crisis appointments. The Counseling Center does have a room you can reserve if you need a private space for your appointment.
