Abstract

Staying up all night to work on papers and projects for school seems like a bad idea when a good night’s sleep is necessary to function. However, others will argue that in the case of pulling an all-nighter, the stress of staying up all night and the challenge makes them work harder, think better, and pressures them to do a good job. I have had the opportunity to attend three all night assignment and writing events and have witnessed how well they have functioned. Through surveys sent out after the events we have received positive feedback on many students successfully achieving their homework goals. The surveys revealed that students coming together in an open and positive environment, united with the same common goal, encourages student use of University facilities and support services. Results suggest the all night events can be useful for students, are wanted by students, and should be offered in the future.
