THESISCRAZY 2018: The Celebration

And with the pops of hundreds of champagne bottles, the Wesleyan University Class of 2018 is done with their theses.

Shortly after the champagne popping, the sound of the fight song rang through campus. Hours later, the Olin steps were still drenched with champagne, and smelled like the aftermath of a Fountain house party (but maybe a little more wholesome).

Congratulations to all of the senior thesis writers. What you’ve all accomplished is a feat, and has inspired so many of us to consider writing theses. To everyone that asked for a thesis crazy interview, thank you for letting us get a glimpse into your lives. We did 48 interviews this year, a new record. Our transcribing fingers are extremely tired.

**if you’ve been featured in thesiscrazy2018 and do not have a photo in your interview, please feel free to send one over and we’ll add it!**

Here are some photos from the steps c/o Jonas Powell ’18, the guy on campus with exceedingly wholesome enthusiasm for facial hair. Seniors, if you’re not still celebrating, send us the photos that you have and we’ll throw them in! Either message us on Facebook or email staff[at]wesleying[dot]org 

THESISCRAZY2018 (Part 14): Goodbye for Now

A picture of Lila counting cells (her “favorite activity”)

 

Dear Friends,

It has been a wild ride. Reading through all these THESISCRAZY2018 interviews has been a privilege, and I can’t wait to see what next year’s class brings. But today we have reached the end of our time together. Part 14 is the last part of thesiscrazy this year. I am sad. You are sad. But today at 4pm, the seniors are gonna stand on the Olin steps and they’re gonna pop their bottles of champagne, have a drink or two (or ten) with friends, and celebrate their momentous achievement of writing a thesis. But let’s not forget they’re probably a little sad too, and they don’t quite know why. It’s gonna nag them a little, and they’ll be left wondering. And then next week (not tomorrow or this weekend ’cause they’ll be celebrating), they’ll realize. Their thesis, this thing that was on their mind 22/7 for the last year, is finished. Their baby is gone.

We’ve got some great ones by Ali Arminio ’18, Khephren Spigner ‘18, Caroline Deimer ‘18Lila Levinson ‘18, Jackson Barnett ‘18, Grace Wong ‘18, Allegra Ayida ‘18, Emily Kessler ‘18, and Amélie Clémot ‘18. Don’t skimp on these theses.

Read after the jump to catch up on this final installment of THESISCRAZY2018. And if you really need something for some ultra-last-minute procrastination, check out all of this year’s interviews here! We’ll see you on the steps at 4!

THESISCRAZY2018 (Part 13): No Two Theses are Identical

Celina hanging out in the gallery

Welcome back to THESISCRAZY2018! This post is a diamond. So unique. Not one of these thesis writers are doing a thesis in the same department. We have a Studio Art thesis by Celina Bernstein ‘18, an Econ thesis by Aqila Putri ‘18, a COL thesis by Jake Orlin ‘18, a Psych thesis by Ananya Subrahmanian ‘18, a Spanish thesis by Martha Mastrianni ‘18, and a Biology and ENVS thesis by Eric Hagen ‘18.

Check out their theses after the jump!

THESISCRAZY2018 (Part 12): Lord Kelvin, Whatcha Doin’?

Alice’s “murder wall” right now.

Hello friends, we back.

Welcome to the twelfth episode of THESISCRAZY 2018. We’re approaching the series finale of THESISCRAZY 2018, and I gotta say I’m feeling a little sad. These theses have been amazing, they’ve been the perfect way for me to procrastinate on my work, and they’ve given me a window into the lives of a ton of people I’ve never even met.

Go past the jump to read about Alice Markham-Cantor ‘18‘s be-witch-ing ancestry, Eli Sands ’18‘s time travel to 1925 Manhattan, Darci Collins ’18‘s journey with the isotropic helicoid (is it real or nah?), and Sarah Kang ’18 research into Ginseng (medicinal wonder, or magical health fruit?).
