Turning in your Capstone
There are multiple Capstone Turn In Days (see timelines for dates):
The "Best Capstone of the Year" in Humanities, Social Science, Science/Engineer, Professional Schools, and "Creative" categories each receive a $500 prize. One of those will be selected for the Orlin Prize for "Outstanding Capstone of the Year" and will receive an additional $1,000. Why not submit yours? All (and only) Capstones submitted by the spring prize deadline are eligible (see timeline for dates).
The Turn In Process
I. First, take our exit/grad survey (link below) to proceed to the Capstone turn-in form.
II. Next, submit your Capstone via our turn-in form:
- You will be asked to upload
- Electronic version of your final written Capstone (10 MB limit),
- Any supplemental files to be uploaded (10 MB limit)
- or links to large files that exceed the limits above, or supplemental materials (external websites, YouTube videos, Dropbox files etc...)
III. Next, head over to the Honors office and hand in the physical copy of your title page signed by your Advisor and your Honors Reader: Download the title page template here (Word download; the Honors director signs it after you turn it in.)
We’ve created a “template” for you that contains the various sections (Abstract, Table of Contents, etc.), with the correct margins, and will allow you to “paste” in your project. You can download the template here.
3. Additional Materials: Required formats for media:
- Magazine, photography, or book projects: in addition to the physical magazine or book itself, please provide electronic copies of layouts of magazines etc...in PDF format. For supplemental photos, please provide your original high resolution images in any of the following formats: jpg, gif, png or any format that is accessible to Adobe CS.
- Videos: submit a data DVD in a format that we can upload to our web archive on Vimeo. Your DVD must also be viewable on commonly used software such as VLC, MediaPlayer, or Quicktime on a PC. Please test your media on a Windows 7 PC to be sure this is the case before you turn it in.
- Audio: please submit a CD (MP3 files preferred).
In those instances in which a Project cannot be physically submitted (e.g. an art exhibit or website link), you should submit the text portion of your Capstone and provide links in the supplemental section of the turn-in form.
