Long Night Against Procrastination: Mid-Term Edition
The Long Night Against Procrastination is for students who want to get serious work done. At this event, the library will provide a distraction-free, quiet environment for you to work… along with regular breaks for snacks and stretching (the “Pomodoro Method”).
Writing Partners, Academic Strategy Partners, and librarians will be available for drop-in consultations.
Attendees should try to identify a goal (i.e.: read a difficult text, work on a research paper) before attending. Students are free to come and go as they need. If you arrive late, please begin working quietly so as not to disturb others.
Basics of the Pomodoro Method:
- Get comfortable!
- Identify a large task.
- Break the large task down into smaller tasks.
- Decide which tasks to complete during each timed working interval. After each interval, take a short break.
