It’s that time of the semester again when, for many students, their motivation starts to fade as assignments begin to pile up. That’s why SFU’s Student Learning Commons is equipping them with tools to help fight procrastination through Late Night Against Procrastination (LNAP), at the Burnaby campus library tonight, starting at 5 p.m.

LNAP will provide students who best study at night with a supportive environment, including writing and learning workshops, strategies to prevent procrastination through breaks, as well as energy boosting foods for this late-night session.

WHEN: Tonight, November 14, from 5 p.m. until 11:55 p.m.
WHERE
: SFU Bennet library on Burnaby campus (Room 3020, SLC Office)

Visuals:

  • Approximately 50 students expected to participate in motivating each other to help fight procrastination
  • Group activities during break: mindfulness, hula dancing, colouring and movies

Media opportunities:

There will be opportunities to take photos and interview students as well as workshop facilitators.
