Senior Thesis Camp

During fall break, October 19-23, 2015 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 assists junior and senior level students working on their senior thesis or capstone project. The camp connects with thesis writers at all stages of their research and writing. Camp members will:

  • 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 helps you:

  • establish a framework for writing and research that will enable you to work effectively
  • develop a sense of community with other students through goal setting and conversations
  • focus on your research while having lunch and snacks provided

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

Registration for Senior Thesis Camp coming soon.
