THESISCRAZY 2018 (Part 10): The Residents of 43 Home

The tag on the outside of Gabe’s carrel in Olin

With this 10th installment of THESISCRAZY 2018, we bring you 3 out of the 4 residents of 43 Home. These three dudes are working hard (and playing hard?), and their theses look phenomenal. We’ve got some discussion of the Foucault/Chomsky debate (check it out, or at least thoroughly enjoy Gabriel Kachuck ‘18‘s hilarious description of it), of Hamburg (and hamburgers) by Jack Guenther ’18, and Joel Michael ’18s valiant attempts at resisting the hegemony of the colon in thesis titles.

Theses are after the jump!

THESISCRAZY 2018 (Part 9): Knee-deep in the KGB

Dasha filling us in on her thesis

Welcome to the NINTH installment of ThesisCrazy 2018. It’s been a day, with a lot of posts, but I feel the need to emphasize that each of these thesis writers has done a phenomenal job, and we wish each of them the best of luck in these last two days.

Two of the three theses in this post feature our BFF, Russia. Dasha Dubinsky ‘18 is writing a thesis where she gets to shit on Putin, which is definitely a win in my opinion. James Reston ’18 is entrenched in a KGB file about the Jesuits. And Nathaniel Barton ’18 is talking about the Isle of Pines, an Island off the coast of Cuba (more Cuba!).

This ThesisCrazy is a group interview with three dudes, Benjamin Yap ‘18Alex Fabry ‘18, and Matt Kleppner ‘18To be clear, they did not all do their these together, in fact this group interview covers three different theses.

Yay Bikes! But Why?

Sometime just after midnight on Wednesday, April 11th, a flock of yellow Penske trucks made their way onto a quiet and peaceful Wesleyan. In the frigid night, illuminated by nothing more than the orange glow of nearby streetlights, they began unloading their cargo: 100 orange bikes to be dispensed on bike racks around the campus.
