As the assignments pile up and exams loom, you’re probably thinking: how am I supposed to get this much work done without catered food, scheduled breaks, and the help of the pros?
We are too! So we’re inviting you to GET IT DONE: a day of supported studying and fun in Ban Righ Dining Hall, brought to you by Student Academic Success Services.
Bring your schoolwork and working minds, because we’ll have everything you need for success, including drinks and food, a comfy study spot, and a team of trained writing and learning assistants to improve your academic work.
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 snacks, supportive Peer Writing and Learning Assistants. Drop in for thirty minutes or five hours!
This event sets first-year students loose on a final paper of their choosing in a dedicated, (relatively) distraction-free space. The Peer Writing and Learning Assistants will be available to provide suggestions, while, in a nearby room, free snacks, and excellent raffle prizes keep everyone motivated.
Through one-on-one consultations and mini-workshops, 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
