Concentrators, to assist with your senior theses or junior papers, graduate students (many of whom you have already met as your preceptors) will be on standby on Friday, December 9th to help you with your projects.

Work together with other English concentrators to write/research brilliantly in the company of others: thesis writing group leaders will guide goal-setting and hold you accountable to quiet, focused research/writing, helping you to be productive.

Walk-ins are welcome, and you can stay in the room the whole day (10AM to 4PM) if you'd like. Lunch will be provided. 

If you would like to commit to attending, please RSVP here by December 1, 2022.

Want one of our grad student facilitators to review your work prior to the bootcamp? Please fill out the optional parts of the survey and submit your work by December 4, 2022. A dropbox link is here: https://bit.ly/ENGBootCampReview  if you want to submit material beforehand for review. Note that the graduate student will spend no more than one hour with your writing before the session, so make sure to specify what aspects of your writing you would like their attention on. Slots are limited for prior submissions and will be read in order of submissions.

Join other English concentrators to combat procrastination and finish your JP or thesis!
