The most reliable dictionary, The Urban Dictionary (this is sarcasm of course), defines procrastination as:

Putting something off that eventually must be done to the very last minute. Sometimes this method can be successful, and the person will get to spend a lot of time relaxing and still get work done. Other times, however, it can lead to poor grades, incomplete work, etc. If one has a lot of work, it is understandable that the person will leave some for the last minute, although this person may be subject to adjectives such as lazy.

Example: Wow, I’ve got an 8-page history paper, a French project, a science lab, and a lot of other nightly assignments… I’ll do some now, but to avoid exhaustion, I’ll have to use procrastination with the rest.

So, Night Against Procrastination (NAP) is the one-stop shop to help you combat your procrastination struggles. We will have a range of different support staff, free study material, and free food to give out to Undergraduate and Postgraduate Griffith Students. Come along to fight against procrastination.

For Postgrads, you might need some help with your research, referencing, and writing. We will have our wonderful GUPSA Editors there to answer your questions.

Or, if you are an undergrad and are having problems outside or inside of academia making it hard to study; Have a chat with our fabulous WALis, who have a wealth of knowledge in the different services Griffith University offers and our amazing Advocacy Officers who can help you navigate your options and help set up emergency support.

We know that the cost of living can be quite challenging, especially when it comes to finding affordable rentals in Queensland. To be honest, the rental market isn’t looking too great right now. However, we’ve got some good news! We’re here to help students navigate through this situation by bringing QTARS to campus on the last Thursday of every month for Trimester 2.


So mark your calendars for August 31st, September 28th, and October 26th from 10 am to 12 pm!


But hold on, what’s QSTARS exactly? It stands for Queensland Statewide Tenant Advice and Referral Service, and it’s an amazing free statewide service for Queensland tenants. Their main goal is to provide all renters in Queensland with top-notch, independent tenant advisory services that help them manage and maintain their tenancy.


Here’s what they can assist you with:

  • Giving advice and assistance to understand your rights and responsibilities as a tenant
  • Providing support to resolve any tenancy issues you may be facing
  • Offering advocacy support to help you communicate with your lessor or agent
  • Helping you write letters or fill in any necessary tenancy forms
  • Guiding you through the preparation for a QCAT tenancy tribunal hearing
  • Referring you to other services if needed


The best part is that instead of having to wait in the QSTARS phone queue, they are now offering drop-in support to Griffith students who walk by. You can find them conveniently located next to our lovely WALi Stall in the Nathan Campus Heart. They’ll be available from 10 am to 2 pm, so swing by and get the assistance you need.


Remember, you don’t have to face the rental market alone. Let QSTARS lend a helping hand and make your tenancy journey a little smoother.
