Humber College’s North Campus was host to the 2019 Long Night Against Procrastination ( LNAP) event.
LNAP, which took place last Wednesday, is an annual event created to help students with assignments and exam prep. The event had booths from different Humber departments showcasing the services the school offers.
The focus was on providing students with information on library services and the math, writing, and accounting centres.
Students who attended got access to free tutoring and workshops and were offered free popcorn and coffee.
At the start of the event, attendees were given a stamp card. Students would receive a stamp on their card after visiting an information booth. Those who visited all the booths could exchange their card for a slice of pizza and be entered in a raffle to win a swag bag.
Another main focus of the event was the promotion of the tutoring services on campus.
Peer support leader Antonio Rizzo was manning the peer tutoring services booth and answering students questions.
“Students can register for one on one tutoring in classes that they need help with and they get up to three hours a week in free tutoring,” Rizzo said.
Rizzo also said interested students can register and book tutors online.
Tutors are students who have a 70 per cent average in their program and at least an 80 per cent in the class that they tutor.
Rizzo said other services are also offered besides one-on-one tutoring.
“Another service that we have is learning skills workshops that can range from time management to prep tests or stress management,” he said. “These just are some workshops that help you.”
First-year Event Planning student Rajwinder Singh said he was walking by and was attracted to the event by the free food.
“I saw others receiving free pizza so I came to see. The lady [event organizer] told me I need to go around and get this card filled for a slice,” Singh said.
He said he thought giving out free food was a good strategy for promoting school services.
“Food on campus is expensive so this is a nice way for me to eat for free and learn about the school [services],” Singh said.
