Favorite Tradition Comes Around Again

Favorite Tradition Comes Around Again

Students: join your friends and classmates for an evening of hard work on whatever you need to write, relieved by study breaks, refreshments, prizes, and the friendly assistance of Rhetoric Center consultants and library research staff. Let us enjoy the true joy of shared misery, as we all buckle down and scribble/type/think/compose/revise. 

This event, popularly referred to as "Write Night" will be at Hekman Library, 7:00 to midnight. Come and go freely. There will be a place to sign up at the main entrance on the library's 2nd floor.

By the way, this tradition of devoting an evening to writing, at a time of the semester when procrastination is no longer an option, started in Germany with a peer tutor at the Europa University Vladrina. They called it “Lange Nacht Der Aufgeschobenen Hausarbeiten," or Long Night Against Procrastination.
