Night against Procrastination

Event information

Questions and Answers

How does the evening work?

We'll start off with a brief introduction and advice on how to study more effectively. Then there will be four official work sessions, with a break between sessions.

Do I have to stay in one place during the work sessions?

No. While we do encourage you to keep focused on your work, if you have to get up for any reason (water, bathroom, supplies), that's fine. You may also choose to meet with a Writing Center consultant, Librarian, Academic coach, or Nutrition coach during the evening.

Will the work sessions be quiet?

We will have one main work session space in the Reading Room which will be quiet. We will also have some space reserved outside of the Reading Room, including computer carrels.

How do I get help?

We will have sign-up sheets at the event for times to meet with Writing Center consultants, UGA Librarians, Academic coaches, and Wellness/Nutrition coach. Each consultation is 20 minutes.

What are the breaks like?

During each break, you will have the option to attend a mini-workshop that will either focus on wellness, or tips for academic success. For example, you can hear tips for "Revising and Proofreading Your Work, or you might also choose to grab a snack, or take a bathroom break.

Will you be providing snacks?

Yes. Food will be set up about 6:30 and will be available until 9 p.m. There may be slight menu changes, but you can expect something like fruit, cheese & crackers, bruschetta, mini desserts, water, and a pineapple infused punch

What about door prizes?

Door prizes will be announced each break in the Reading Room. You must have checked in at registration to be eligible. Due to event sessions being in several rooms, we will post the names of Door Prize Winners on an easel outside the Reading Room. Check in with Sandra Riggs, by 11:30 p.m. to pick up your prize.

If you registered in advance, you were entered for a special door prize that will be announced at the beginning of the event.
