Hello fuksi!

Congratulations on your achievement and a warm welcome to Otaniemi! We are JuhLis, aka Juho and Melissa, your fuksi captains! Our job is to guide you along your journey to become a teekkari and to offer support throughout your first year of studies.

This website will be updated later during the summer with useful information and tips for the coming year, so make sure to check back later! Check these pages for the new Fuksi Guide that contains all kinds of important information about your upcoming years!  

If you have any questions or concerns, or if you cannot attend the first day of Orientation on the 28th of August, please don’t hesitate to contact one of us. Enjoy your summer, and see you in the fall!

Best regards,
