Trent's Long Night Against Procrastination (LNAP) is a free event, held at Bata Library each November and March, to help students develop essential skills to manage demanding end-of-semester writing and study schedules. At LNAP, students can learn strategies for time management, exam preparation, writing strategies, stress management and more in workshops and drop-in sessions. Students also can enjoy free stress-busters, including massage therapy and healthy snacks.

Three Minute Paper (3MP) is an exciting competition for undergraduate students developed in collaboration by the colleges of Trent University and Academic Skills. The 3MP competition challenges upper-year Trent undergraduates to present their work to others, in a clear, concise, and engaging manner in only 3 minutes. Students develop essential communication skills in the planning, preparation, and performance of their talk.

The Three Minute Thesis Competition (3MT®) presents M.A., M.Sc., and Ph.D. students with the ultimate challenge: to explain their complex and highly specialized research and ideas to a general audience in just three minutes, using only one Power Point slide. This collaborative event is organized by Graduate Studies, External Affairs, Traill College, and Academic Skills.
