Campus Resources: ARCs and Tutoring

Ryan BallweberDo you find yourself struggling with school work?
Have no idea how to solve that math problem?
Don’t know what to study?
Can’t find research for a project?

If these questions struck a chord with you, then you’ve come to the right place. Like you, I had questions of my own, so I turned to one of the best resources for on-campus residents – the ARC!

I interviewed the South Hall Academic Resource Coordinator (ARC), Nic Baumann to get the answers to all my burning academic questions.thumbnail_nic-baumann-2

What is an ARC?

Nic explains, “ARC stands for Academic Resource Coordinator. An ARC is a live-in resource in all the halls, minus Red Cedar, that runs study hours in your building and also academic related events within the halls.” Nic points out that although an ARC isn’t a tutor, they’re there to help point you in the right direction so that your academic needs are met.

What are the different tutoring opportunities on campus?

“There are all sorts of tutors on campus,” says Nic. “There are math tutors, physics tutors, we even have the Writing center.

Nic mentions, “You can find their hours and locations using the University website. Use the search bar or use each department’s websites for their tutor information.”

Where can I go to get help with a research project?

“You can go to the library and ask a librarian. They will be more than happy to help you find the resources you need to get your research started.” Nic adds, “Don’t forget that we also have the writing center that can help you get started on your paper or even help you edit it.”

Why is it important to use our campus resources?

“It is important because it sets you up for success here at the University of Wisconsin-Stout. You do not have to be alone during your time here. It can save you time and energy when struggling with your homework. The best part is……… IT’S FREE!”

Nic’s final words of advice: “I want everyone to know, you don’t need to be struggling to visit the tutor.”
