Exams are coming. Assignments are almost due. If you’re ready to get to work and need some motivation, you’re in luck!

The Long Night Against Procrastination (LNAP) is designed just for you.

LNAP is a free, all-night event providing a safe and supported study/writing space for all students at a critical point in the term. Librarians and writing tutors will be available to work with you, providing research and writing assistance throughout the night. There are even free light refreshments!

LNAP will start on Thursday, November 26, 2015, at 10:00 pm and continue until Friday morning, November 27, 2015, at 8:00 am in the Elizabeth Dafoe Library.
