Long day against procrastination

Twice per academic year, Student Academic Success Services and Queen’s Residence Life join forces to provide first-year students with the ultimate anti-procrastination tool — complete with substantial snacks, supportive Peer Writing and Learning Assistants, and occasional motivational dance parties, to boot!

Upcoming: Long Day Against Procrastination

Sunday, November 12th from 11am-8pm
Ban Righ Levana Room

Drop in for thirty minutes or five hours! This event sets first-year students loose on assignments of their choosing in a dedicated, (relatively) distraction-free space. The Peer Writing and Learning Assistants will be available to provide suggestions, and goal setting while, in a nearby room, free snacks, and excellent raffle prizes keep everyone motivated.

Through one-on-one consultations and a supportive, healthy environment this event may help students

  • generate new ideas and map connections
  • structure a complex paper in a coherent way
  • sculpt an introductory paragraph or thesis statement
  • break a large project into smaller writing tasks
  • feel part of a larger writing community
  • get started on a major assignment earlier rather than later
