Honors students and advisors take a lunch break during Thesis Bootcamp in January.

In mid-January, eight juniors and seniors attended the week-long thesis writing bootcamp, an Honors annual event. Thesis bootcamp is intended to provide a quiet and collaborative space where students make progress on their theses and set goals before the semester begins. Students receive guidance from a librarian and thesis advisor, and feedback on their writing and progression. Honors hosts four days of quiet space and nourishment, including breakfast, lunch and healthy snacks. Bootcampers were: Caitlyn Pritchard, The Grave Concern that is the United States Medicolegal Death Investigation System; Ekaterina Kladova, Tesori: Uniting Italian Artisans via an Online Platform; Kathryn Piper, An Examination of the Effectiveness of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for the Management of Uncertainty in Patients with Chronic Gastro-Motility Disorders; and Maddie Chiarolanzio, Using Painting as a Language, an Exhibition Centered around an Experience Abroad in Florence. These students will be among the 100+ seniors who will present their completed work on May 2, at Honors Thesis Presentation Day in the Hall of Languages.
