We're bringing thesis camp back to the dining hall!
If you will be on campus during spring break and are looking for somewhere to spread out and work on your thesis, your spring JP, or any other assignments, come by the dining hall. Let the sparkling moonlight on the lake soothe your mind and provide a tranquil backdrop for your research and page-churning.
The main "event" will be in the overnight hours--between 8pm and 8am each day (the evening of March 14-the morning of March 19), providing you with brain food and brain caffeine to keep you going (note--don't rely on this as a meal plan replacement!!). Not a night owl? No worries! The dining hall will be all yours during the daylight hours as well (though that will be BYO snacks)--so feel free to set up camp whenever you're feeling a spurt of productivity or are trying to kickstart such a spurt.
We do ask that everyone be respectful of the intended zen in the dining hall during these times--if you're looking for a place to relax and unplug with friends, please seek out other common areas. The dining hall will be a quiet zone during the core overnight hours.
If you're planning to take advantage of this time, please RSVP here, as we want to be sure to order up enough snacks.
Feeling iffy? Keep in mind there are studies that show that hard work breeds hard work--surrounding yourself with a community of fellow researchers and writers can mean you'll be more productive in your own research and writing. It's also a reminder that you're not alone during the stress of preparing big-deal papers and assignments.
