Speaking of Thesiscrazy, Judgment Day is finally here: the earthly guardians of Olin Library have decided who gets a thesis carrel and who must wander like the nomads of old. The list is posted on the door of the Olin Library Office, but to save you the trip, we’ve also posted it below (courtesy of Melody’s iPhone). If you didn’t get a carrel, rest assured that your spot on the wait list is unquestionably above mine.
Here’s the process, according to the library website:
In Olin there are 94 single closed carrels and 6 doubles; so 106 students can be accommodated in closed carrels in Olin.
Since 170 or more senior Honors candidates are eligible for a carrel, and most apply for one, to be as fair as possible, Olin carrels are assigned by lottery each fall. Eligible seniors who are not assigned a carrel are put on a waiting list. If a carrel becomes free during the academic year, the next student on the waiting list is offered the carrel.
Have fun in your carrel, but know your limits.
