Hopefully this isn’t you right now
It’s that time of year again! The days are getting longer, the weather is (sort of) getting warmer, and theses are almost due. In our annual Wesleying tradition, we want to hear about them! Seniors, come claim you 5 minutes of fame (in the form of a 10-15 minute interview) and tell us about your topic, your process, and the trials and tribulations that led to this point. And definitely tell us about your definitely-not-drunken plans for April 14th!
Fill out this form and a writer will reach out to you to set up an interview! And if you want a great way to procrastinate, look through the ThesisCrazy archives here, and see each year’s worth of interviews below:
Let’s be honest, it’s been a year. And as if you didn’t have it hard enough, you’re also writing a thesis?!? Goodness gracious.
We want to talk to you! Tell us about the birth of your beautiful thesis baby, and don’t leave anything out. Tell us about the highs, the lows, and the ~highs. Tell us about life in general, and how that’s going. Tell us about all of the life knowledge you’ve accumulated in the past four years. And tell us your post-thesis plans. (Champagne? Crying? We want to know!)
Fill out the form here!
