Night Against Procrastination

Mar 21, 2024 04:00 PM to Mar 22, 2024 12:00 AM

Registration Deadline: Mar 21, 2024 09:30 PM

On the evening of March 21st, Academic Success is staying up late to help you get things done! With partners from across campus, we're running online workshops and co-working sessions to support your studying, and in-person activities to help you de-stress and connect with other students. We'll be at Robarts Library and online, so you can pick and choose among events to get what you need to get #ExamReadyUofT.

Build your skills and get support:

  • Do you have multiple final exams? We know this time of year can be tough. Learn effective study practices, understand how we retain and lose information over time, and develop your plans in our online workshop, Managing your Finals, from 4:00 to 5:00 pm.
  • Are your deadlines piling up? Planning your Projects, from 5:00 to 6:00 pm, is for you to make and meet your goals on your essays, assignments and projects. This online workshop will help you learn things like prioritization, planning, and breaking down your work into manageable pieces.
  • If you want individual support, we have 15-minute appointments with the Academic Success peer team. Drop by Robarts (second floor North Portico area, near the escalators) to get immediate help on effective ways to manage your work and fight procrastination, from 5:15 to 7:00 pm.
  • And the Ask Chat with a Librarian link lets you connect directly with library staff and get real-time research help locating resources, and learn how to effectively use library services, resources and tools! Available on this day until 10:00 pm.

Online co-working sessions, to help you get things done:
In-person activities at Robarts Library:
  • From 5:00 to 6:00 pm on the first floor (near the printers): join Melissa from Mindful Moments for 10-minute yoga breaks to relax, stretch and breathe. This is a come-as-you-are class: there's no need for special clothing, and we'll provide the mats.
  • From 5:00 to 7:00 pm on the second floor (North Portico area, near the escalators): join UTFOLD to learn some beginner-friendly origami. Too busy to learn how to make a paper animal study buddy? They'll have ready-made origami models for you to take home for free.
  • From 5:00 to 7:00 pm on the second floor (North Portico area, near the escalators): pick up an #ExamReadyUofT swag bagdry-erase wall calendars and some food, coffee and hot beverages!
  • And from 7:00 to 8:00 pm, join us for a Scavenger Hunt in Robarts Library! If you need a study break, this interactive scavenger hunt will help you learn about the spaces, resources and supports available to you within Robarts while you find clues hidden throughout the library. Prizes are up for grabs if you are one of the first to answer the questions: just find us by the North Portico area on the second floor!
