Tutors are a group of students selected to ease the introduction of the academic year especially for freshmen. Tutors help out with finding the way in Arcada, studies as well as student life in general. During the beginning of the academic year the tutors arrange a variety of events to help out with the familiarizing process between freshmen. As a tutor you get the chance to meet students from all the different programs in Arcada and students who come from all over the world.

Tutors are also responsible for marketing Arcada on trade shows and traveling to schools sharing about studying in Arcada. Arcada marketing requires a separate education that is offered to all tutors regardless of responsibility. Anyone can apply for a tutor, no prior knowledge is required! We assume that all ASK tutors are also members of ASK (if you are not right now you can still become a member) As a tutor, you can also sign up for a course and get 5 credits. Everyone who applied for a tutor will be called for a short interview in February.

As a tutor you will also be divided into a area of responsibility, there are four different areas of responsibility.
