Shut Up and SPROJ! A Writing and Research Space for Seniors

Classic style impact typewritter

We’d love you to join us in the library on Mondays, from 4 to 5 pm, to work quietly on your Senior Project alongside your peers. By making the commitment to show up for your project at the same time in the same place each week, you’re able to turn one hour of focused work into a stable routine that yields real results. 
Additionally, research indicates that even the smallest sense of belonging to a community increases our performance. When you show up for Shut Up & SPROJ, you are supported and motivated by everyone writing around you.

Date: Mondays (beginning February 10)
Time: 4–5 pm
Location: Stevenson Library 402
