Apply to Work with a Thesis Mentor

phd040809s

From Savannah Whiting ’13 and Taylor Steele ’14:

Starting to feel a bit overwhelmed by your senior thesis? You’ve been researching for months, collecting information and structuringyour thoughts, but soon you actually have to start writing the thesis.And when I say soon, I mean really soon. As in this weekend (after brunch). But don’t panic! You still have plenty of time to write an honors-worthy manuscript, as long as you get started soon and stay organized. The other big favor you can do for yourself? Sign up for a thesis mentor.

Your thesis mentor will work with you throughout the spring semester, meeting as regularly as you’d like to discuss any and all aspects of your thesis. Your mentor can discuss ideas with you to help structure your argument, look over that one chapter that isn’t clicking, and even read through your whole thesis before you turn it in (something your advisor might not do!). It’s incredibly beneficial to partner with someone who can keep you on task and track the development of your thesis over time.
