Senior Thesis Camp

During fall break, October 20-24, 2014, the Hesburgh Libraries proudly offers a program co-sponsored with the University Writing Center to help undergraduate scholars focus on their own research and writing.

The SeniorThesis Camp is designed to assist senior level students who are working toward completion of their senior thesis or project. The camp can connect with seniors at all stages of their research and writing. Participants will have the opportunity to:

  • jumpstart or move forward in their research and writing process
  • work in dedicated spaces in the Hesburgh Library
  • consult with their subject librarians
  • consult with University Writing Center tutors about their work
  • engage with colleagues in their own and other undergraduate programs to learn best practices from peers
  • form communities of practice to engage in the camp process after its conclusion

Our program will help you establish a framework for writing and research that will enable you to work effectively. Through informal conversations and short discussions, you will also develop a sense of community with other students. Each day the camp will provide morning and afternoon snacks, pepared lunches and coffee and water throughout the day.

Enrollment is free. Registration is required and availability is limited.
