What is PAW?

Procrastination Awareness Week is an annual virtual event that in 2024 will take place March 4-8. It brings together the most popular resources from 25+ academic institutions across Canada.

Students are invited to attend remote workshops to learn strategies related to focus and concentration, motivation, time management, writing, studying, and exam preparation.  

UFV will also be hosting some on-campus activities, such as workshops and live-streaming presentations, throughout the week. Check back here and follow us on social media @ufvASC for details.

Here are some of the ways you'll connect with students from across Canada throughout the week: 

  • Live and pre-recorded workshops
  • Conversations with peer tutors
  • Resource library
  • Shared virtual study hall

You might be surprised to find what a difference it makes to work alongside others, even if they are just a face in a square in a virtual room.

Register for FREE today and check out the exciting schedule of events during the week of March 4th to 8th. Join one of our ASC tutor tips sessions and discover some of the best workshops that other institutions across Canada have to offer.

PAW is experiencing issues with event capacity.

We apologize for the trouble with the lobby. Thank you for bearing with us! We are livestreaming many sessions through the LSAC YouTube channel:
