THESISCRAZY: Over and Out (For the Class of 2013, At Least)

Rejected post title: “P-Safe Writes Up Every Thesis-Writer for Open-Container Violation on Steps of Olin”

Though it is unknown just how many seniors were up finishing their theses late Thursday night, or still finishing them yesterday, once the clock struck 4:00 p.m., everyone was done—we hope— and as per tradition, another class of thesis writers gathered on the steps of Olin to celebrate. The downpour posed no hindrance to the celebrators, as they only added to the wintry wetness by popping a myriad of champagne bottles. The writers were joined by an ensemble of Taiko drummers, who, using plastic topped garbage cans, pounded away, providing an appropriate accompaniment to this journey’s end. Smiles, hugs, and bellows of joys were abound, and there were even a couple of tears. They’re done with their theses, but not with Wesleyan, and this tradition seems the ample way to lead them to that end, as the Class of 2013 moves into its final month here.

Also of note was a concurrent bridal procession, who also happened to be taking photos at Olin on this particularly rainy day. Shout-out to the bride and groom, who found more celebration on campus than they probably expected.
