Events & Partnerships

A-Z Learning Services hosts student-centred events throughout the year, such as Night Against Procrastination and First Generation Student Trailblazers’ events. Additionally, we work with multiple partners across the university and within the community to meet students where they are and to support them in whatever way we can.

Events

Night Against Procrastination

Night Against Procrastination is a fun exciting annual event in November focused on encouraging students to get started on big term assignments early.  We provide workspace, professional writing staff, tutors, relaxation sessions (e.g. “Make your own stress ball), mini workshops (e.g. “Quick Guide to APA Citation”), soup, hot chocolate, popcorn, and sweet swag!  Come join more than 400 students as we all gather together to get ‘er done.

Due to Covid-19, Night Against Procrastination 2020 will be VIRTUAL. The event be completely online with lots of opportunities for on- and off-line support.

  • 6 hours of study group support by Brock Tutors (online real-time!)
  • academic strategy resources to explore before, during, and after the event
  • break and relaxation options throughout the evening

Break and relaxation options will include 10-minute zumba, stretch it out, fun with crafts, make your own stress ball, and many more! We will send a full agenda prior to the event.

Trailblazers’ Week

Over 25% of our student population is first in their family to attend post-secondary, and we believe that, as Trailblazers, they are not only changing the course of their own lives but also the lives of generations to follow.  In honor of these students, we offer Trailblazers’ events such as a full-day Trailblazer First Generation Conference in the beginning of fall and winter term.    

Due to Covid-19, the format for the Trailblazer First Generation 2020 Conference will be online. Please visit Experience BU for event details and to register.
