Theses are over, and (most) everyone is pumped. In true Wesleyan tradition, thesis writers (and many many others) gathered on the steps of Olin this afternoon to celebrate the 4 P.M. deadline with copious drinking, delirious hugging, and a rendition of the fight song. The festivities began a few minutes early with Virgil Taylor ’15 toasting his classmates with a joyous “Fuck all of you!” before popping his champagne. For many thesis writers, today was preceded by long stretched devoid of sleeping, eating and/or showering, which might explain everyone eagerness to soak both their insides and outsides with champagne.
To all thesis writers, congratulations!
Look after the jump for pictures of the celebrations!
Samira “My thesis won’t make me crazy” Siddique
There are only a few hours left until theses are due and the steps of Olin are covered in champagne and seniors in varying states of intoxication. In this (bonus) installment of THESISCRAZY 2015, we bring you words from a few more soon-to-be-relieved thesis writers, including our very own Samira and ztevenz! Check out this years’ other features and previous years’ here.
At this point, we’re probably not going to interview you, but if you want, you can email us your hopes, dreams and nudes (don’t email us nudes) at staff[at]wesleying[dot]org.
This is definitely-probably what Amy Zhang‘s thesis is about…
In the fourth installment of THESISCRAZY 2015, we talk about everything from children’s fantasy to junk food and propaganda. Parts 1, 2 and 3 of the series are here, here, and here, and THESISCRAZY features from previous years are here.
If you’re completely insane and still want us to interview you in the ~28 hours until theses are due, email staff[at]wesleying[dot]org!
So there’s that thing about Wesleyan being the horniest college, right? Well, part of that reputation might come from the fact that when busy seniors decide to pursue a year-long research project (re: thesis), most of them get a personal carrel in which to study/research/reach academic enlightenment. And when students hear about this simultaneously public and private space, the next question is easy: Have you had sex in it?
Thanks to a 1995 article from the Argus, it’s been a THESISCRAZY thing to ask you if you’ve been doing the boopity boop in your confined academic spaces. So if you’re a 2015er scrambling to wrap up what’s been a two-semester process, you received a survey a couple weeks ago about how you’ve been spending your time in your (or someone else’s) carrel. Out of the 97 carrel-having people doing theses this year, 33% responded to this bangin’ survey.
Let’s just say people really know how to get busy in their carrels. Find the results after the jump!
Trina Parks ’15 makes books for her thesis!
In this installment of THESISCRAZY 2015, we interviewed some metaphorical thinkers about their theses, their progress, and, of course, their poop. Parts 1 and 2 of the series are here and here, and THESISCRAZY features from previous years are here.
