And with the pops of hundreds of champagne bottles, the Wesleyan University Class of 2018 is done with their theses.
Shortly after the champagne popping, the sound of the fight song rang through campus. Hours later, the Olin steps were still drenched with champagne, and smelled like the aftermath of a Fountain house party (but maybe a little more wholesome).
Congratulations to all of the senior thesis writers. What you’ve all accomplished is a feat, and has inspired so many of us to consider writing theses. To everyone that asked for a thesis crazy interview, thank you for letting us get a glimpse into your lives. We did 48 interviews this year, a new record. Our transcribing fingers are extremely tired.
**if you’ve been featured in thesiscrazy2018 and do not have a photo in your interview, please feel free to send one over and we’ll add it!**
Here are some photos from the steps c/o Jonas Powell ’18, the guy on campus with exceedingly wholesome enthusiasm for facial hair. Seniors, if you’re not still celebrating, send us the photos that you have and we’ll throw them in! Either message us on Facebook or email staff[at]wesleying[dot]org
Alice’s “murder wall” right now.
Hello friends, we back.
Welcome to the twelfth episode of THESISCRAZY 2018. We’re approaching the series finale of THESISCRAZY 2018, and I gotta say I’m feeling a little sad. These theses have been amazing, they’ve been the perfect way for me to procrastinate on my work, and they’ve given me a window into the lives of a ton of people I’ve never even met.
Go past the jump to read about Alice Markham-Cantor ‘18‘s be-witch-ing ancestry, Eli Sands ’18‘s time travel to 1925 Manhattan, Darci Collins ’18‘s journey with the isotropic helicoid (is it real or nah?), and Sarah Kang ’18 research into Ginseng (medicinal wonder, or magical health fruit?).
