My name is Nou (pronounced like 'new'), and I am a first-generation Hmong American graduate from the University of Wisconsin- Stout. On my spare time, I enjoy baking, cooking, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.
Advice for a new student:
Up to 80% of first year admitted students are uncertain about what they want to major in, even those students who have declared majors. Therefore, it is okay to not know what you want to do. You are NOT alone.
I majored in Human Development and Family Studies
Why did you choose your major?
Through my volunteer experiences many chapters ago, I knew I wanted to help people. I was uncertain on what specific area in the helping profession, but after researching the HDFS program and recommendations from a few individuals, it helped me choose this specific area of study.
What do you love most about UW-Stout?

The Farmers Market - fresh vegetables, flowers and lots of food!
A random fact about me...
I can still recall the first 10 numbers in pi (3.14) from middle school.
