Writing workshops

A series of lunch and learn writing workshops take place over the course of both Winter terms. These workshops cover topics such as planning a paper, crafting thesis statements and paragraphs, integrating sources, and editing your writing. Check out our upcoming workshops above.

Stop Procrastination Station

Due to COVID-19, the upcoming Stop Procrastination Station has been cancelled.

In collaboration with the Library, the Student Learning Hub provides evening drop-in writing and research support on the first floor of the library with Librarians and Writing Consultants at crucial times during both Winter terms. Stop Procrastination Station for Term 2 will be March 23, 24, 30, and 31.

Fresh Start! Pop-up Learning Support

At the beginning of Term 2, the Student Learning Hub operates pop-up learning support to help you get back in the groove and break through that beginning-of-term haze. Fresh Start for Term 2 runs January 7, 8, and 9 from 11-1 on the first floor of the library.

Back-To-Basics

Feel fuzzy on high school math and science concepts? Forget how to factor? Feel lost without your calculator? Reboot your memory and refresh your skills with Back-to-Basics review sessions.

A foundation in high school math is essential to success in university-level chemistry, math, and physics. Back-to-Basics is a series of tutor-led review sessions that will help you relearn those important math concepts and get prepared for your first year science courses. Join us for a session, or two, or three, and get Back-to-Basics.

How do I attend?

Sessions are offered throughout the beginning of September. You are welcome to drop-in for any or all of them.
