An all-night writing and research extravaganza! However, LNAP is so much more: it recognizes and accommodates the demanding, multi-faceted schedules of our students by offering alternative and timely support; contributes to a sense of belonging; and battles loneliness and isolation.
20-minute writing, research, studying, or wellness-related workshops are offered every 30 minutes throughout the night!
We also provide a variety of Wellness activities:
11pm, 2am, and 4am campus safe walks (with glow-sticks!)
And...we can't forget the food!
Pizza at midnight
Healthy snacks, coffee, tea & hot chocolate through the night
A: There will be Writing Centre tutors, Library staff, peer mentors, math tutors, counsellors, and more.. who will be there as resources as you work on your writing and assignments.
Q: Is LNAP really a thing?
A: Yes! It is a global effort to create a safe and supportive environment for writers. it first started at the European University Viadrina, Germany in 2010 as a way of supporting students academically. Writing can be a lonely endeavour. who doesn't need a little encouragement and support from time to time?
Q: Will Kamloops Transit be running throughout the night?
A: No, Kamloops Transit will be running their regular schedule with the last bus leaving campus around 11:20pm (depending on the route). If you are leaving LNAP early, please make sure that you have a safe way of getting home.
Q: If I leave early, how do I get back to the student residence safely at 2am?
A: Join us on the new Safe Walk. We will walk a loop around campus past student parking lots and both student residences three times through the night (12am, 2am, and 4am). Meet at the front door of the library and get home safely!
Q: What should I bring?
A: Bring at least one assignment to work on, including any assignment instructions or first draft that you might have. You may also wish to bring a laptop, water bottle, and travel mug; we'll supply the tea and coffee, but appreciate you helping us make LNAP a sustainable event. Bunny slippers are optional.
