Long Night Against Procrastination -- Longue Nuit Anti-Procrastination--fall 2014
The LNAP is an all-night event that serves
: to help students whose schedules do not permit them to visit writing support centres during the day; to encourage healthy working habits; and to bring attention to Writing Centres by creating a unique and fun atmosphere for students who are looking for help with their writing assignments.
The LNAP will take place on November 6 to 7, 2014 in the Rutherford South Library, from 8pm until 8am.
Three University of Alberta's writing centres will participate: The Centre for Writers (North Campus), Writing Resources (North Campus), Le Centre d'ecriture bilingue (Campus Saint Jean).
