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
Claire j chillin’ in her thesis carrell.
This THESISCRAZY part ellllleeeeveeeeen. We’re sitting on the cusp of greatness. Tomorrow’s the day. We’ve got a BUNCH of theses in this post (5. that’s a bunch), so make sure to stay tuned till the end. We’ve had a record breaking year of interviews (google forms are truly revolutionary), so we’re gonna be posting until the final moment.
I think the weather outside is like once removed from a tornado, and I know you don’t wanna go out there. So why don’t you pop over to Pi, grab yourself a nice matcha latte, and lounge a little. Read a little. Get to know your peers a little.

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 ’18‘s valiant attempts at resisting the hegemony of the colon in thesis titles.
Theses are after the jump!

The members of 128A Church j chillin in the wonderful outdoors.
This ThesisCrazy is a group interview with three dudes, Benjamin Yap ‘18, Alex Fabry ‘18, and Matt Kleppner ‘18. To be clear, they did not all do their these together, in fact this group interview covers three different theses. However, the three of them do live in the same house, so hit them up at 128A Church!
