THESISPARTY 2016: Time to Get Drvnk!!

View post on imgur.com

It’s all over, and I’m soaked with Andre. All theses are now turned in as of 4PM, and we’re fucking stoked. The sun came out right as thesis writers and friends gathered on the steps of Olin. Thesis writers are probs making any excuse to drink, and after doing 9 sets of THESISCRAZY interviews we’re tryna as well tbh.

Adhering to tradition, seniors on the steps counted down until the 4PM deadline, supported by 100 or so other folks watching below. Bottles were popped, the fight song was sung, you wish you were there, Wes is lit.

Congrats to all the thesis writers! See some pics from the day’s festivities:

THESISCRAZY 2016 (Part 9): Welcome to the Afterlife

“So I imagine that day on the steps to be white-washed with the sun, and everybody that you ever cared about or loved, gathered, so it’d be like heaven, reuniting with your dead grandma kind of feeling. … Kind of, it’s like entry into the afterlife, the afterlife of Wesleyan.”

sheep and horseWelcome to the final installment of THESISCRAZY 2016, the series where we interview seniors who have spent a wild amount of time working on extremely specific topics. All of these interviews were conducted between March 31st and April 2nd, but aren’t getting posted until now, after theses are due, because I, hopefully unlike most thesis writers, left things to the very last minute. Let’s hope this is not an indication of how the thesis I may or may not write will play out. Check out read parts one through eight of this year’s installment here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here. And THESISCRAZY archives are here. And be on the look out for pictures from the Olin steps soon!

THESISCRAZY 2016 (Part 8): The End Is Near (Like, Today)

“April 12th! Oh my God! I’m just going to crawl into a hole and sleep.”

Welcome to part 8 of THESISCRAZY 2016, the series where we interview seniors who are losing their shit because their theses are due TODAY at 4PM (GASP). You already know the drill, but read parts one through seven of this year’s installment here, here, here, here, here, here, and here. And THESISCRAZY archives are here.


THESISCRAZY 2016 (Part 7): I Don’t Like Shit, I Don’t Go Outside

 “This morning I woke up and put toothpaste on the wrong side of my toothbrush, and continued brushing with that wrong side of the toothbrush.”


My my, this is our 7th THESISCRAZY 2016 feature (#RECORD). Here’s the gist y’all: Every year we interview humans who sometimes populate the (ethereal?) space of 4th floor Olin, writing theses and such. We ask thesis writers about poops and other things. Catch this part, this part, this part, this part, this part, and this part, and all the old ones from previous years.

Part 7, here we come. Prepare yeselves for top-spinning masters, incorrect toothbrushing, and the Lonely Island’s fave champagne:

THESISCRAZY 2016 (Part 6): Decapitated Remains

  Plans for April 12th: “I’m supposed to actually run a TA session that night, so I don’t know what’s gonna happen.”


Welcome back haha. This is Part 6 of THESISCRAZY 2016, our annual charade of entering small cubby-like rooms with lots of books and asking thesis writers cool questions about their cool theses. See parts 1 through 5 here, here, here, here, and here wooo! See our THESISCRAZY archives too.

Now, read about grave robberies, climate change, and syphilis:

THESISCRAZY 2016 (Part 5): Everything’s an Iceberg

“Yeah, I just think in terms of sediment. I think my brain’s turning into sediment.”


Welcome back to THESISCRAZY 2016. At this point, you probably know the drill, but here’s the quick spiel: We interview crazed mutants thesis writers as they race against the clock to get their theses done by April 12th. You can check out the other installments of this year’s THESISCRAZY here, here, here, and here. The THESISCRAZY archive is here.

Time to talk to stressed people after the jump.

THESISCRAZY 2016 (Part 4): Don’t Hug Me, I’m Scared

“That’s what I’m going to be dedicating my last month at Wesleyan to: Toasting perfect toast.”

Yo yo yo, this is part 4 of THESISCRAZY 2016, the annual series where we bug thesis writers with fun questions about their poops and such.

Welcome back to THESISCRAZY 2016, where we talk to stressed thesis writers about the thing that has been taking up all their headspace for the past 8-12 months (because what could go wrong with that?). You can check out THESISCRAZY 2016 Part 1 here, read the THESISCRAZY archive here, and stay tuned for more THESISCRAZY posts before April 12th.

Are you a senior thesis writer who wants something other to do other than staring at your computer screen and eating food from Weshop’s candy aisle? Email staff(at)wesleying(dot)org with your name, major, workspace/carrel number, and times you can meet before April 12th.

Hello, hello and welcome to the first installment of THESISCRAZY 2016. We’ve got some great interviews in here, so sit back, relax, and have an existential crisis over whether or not writing a thesis is a actually good idea. Oh, and you can see THESISCRAZY interviews from previous years by clicking here.

If you’re a senior writing a thesis and you want to commiserate about your thesis poops and most traumatic thesis experiences, email us at staff(at)wesleying(dot)org and include your name, major, workspace info (carrel, lab, etc.), and times you can meet before April 12th.

Thesis-ing is after the jump.
