The Student Learning Commons is announcing our 4th annual undergraduate writing contest.
Read on to hear from last year's Lower Division contest winner (and current SLC Writing and Learning Peer, Austyn).

SLC Learning Services Coordinator Ruth Silverman shares notes from the recent session "How I Raised My GPA." The event was wildly popular and invited current students to listen to their peers' stories about raising their GPAs. Stay tuned for the next iteration of this event, coming soon!
For the third year in a row, the SLC will host an undergraduate writing contest.
All contest details, and the submission page, can be found here: https://journals.lib.sfu.ca/index.php/slc-uwc
The contest opens on November 29th and submissions will continue to be accepted until January 5th 2020 (at midnight).
Sharing more of the six word stories we have collected by asking members of the SLC community to reflect on their mistakes and/or what they've learned from them. Enjoy! Maybe you'll see yourself in some of these micro-stories! I know I do... :}
Do you sometimes find yourself in ‘busy mode’ but not accomplishing much? Do you feel you could be more organized or productive? With the start of the fall semester, it's the perfect time to set some intentions about how you want to spend your time and get prepared!
It's that time of semester when assignment deadlines can start to feel like they are piling up on you. And, it can be especially hard to get down to work when the sun is shining!
Let the assignment calculator help you to break down your assignments into manageable steps. That's just good project management!
The six word story initiative invites members of the SFU community to celebrate their "excellent mistakes."
In these six word stories, SFU students share their procrastination-related mistakes and words of wisdom to help you get your summer semester off to a productive and healthy start.
I know you’ve been waiting with bated breath for this … Volume 2 of the SLC Undergraduate Writing Contest Open Journal is finally available! But why should you read them, really?
Read on and Learning Services Coordinator Ruth Silverman will give you plenty of reasons why!
