Sounds like a plan: Thesis Workshop
September 29, 2016 - 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm
Frost Library, 211 (CHI conference room)
Congratulations! You've been approved to pursue an honors thesis. Now what? Planning an academic project of this scale can challenge even the most organized and well-prepared students. In this workshop, we will guide writers through the processes of mapping out the thesis project to begin to develop a clear, tenable research plan and a timeline in which to execute it. We'll also discuss some of the habits for productivity and creativity that can help you make steady, incremental progress. Taught by Jessica Kem(Writing Center associate director) and Blake Doherty (research, instruction, and outreach librarian). Advance registration is required.
Monthly Book Display: September - College! / New Beginnings
Welcome (back) to college! Library staff and students have selected a variety of books and films about college and/or new beginnings. See one you like? Use your Amherst ID (which is also your library card) to check it out!
Weekly Thesis Write-in
Thursdays, 8:00 - 11:00 PM in CHI (2nd floor of Frost)
Thesis writers, set yourself up to succeed this year by joining fellow students to write together regularly. Research and experience show us that most of us write more productively when we commit to a regular writing schedule and when we write among others. Find motivation and support among fellow thesis writers at the Weekly Thesis Write-in. Coffee and snacks will be provided. Sponsored by the Writing Center and Library.
