FWE

The Stout Adventures Freshmen Wilderness Experience (FWE) was introduced in 2003 to offer a unique outdoor adventure specifically for incoming freshmen. Since then the program has helped countless incoming freshmen transition to college life and meet new friends in a fun and adventurous setting.  Join us this summer for a trip of a lifetime! FWE is a 5-9 day wilderness trip designed specifically for incoming freshman. It is also a great way to meet other students before arriving to UW-Stout in the fall!
