University of Notre Dame
Senior Thesis Camp
The program is designed to assist seniors who are writing theses in Arts & Letters.
Students will have the opportunity to jumpstart the research and writing process by
working in dedicated spaces in the library and by consulting with librarians and writing
tutors about their work. The program will help students establish a framework for
writing and research that will enable them to work effectively. Through informal con-
versations and short presentations of their research, they will also develop a sense of
community with other students. Members of the Center for Undergraduate Scholarly
Engagement will talk about the annual research fair and opportunities for graduate
study. Each day the library will provide breakfast and refreshments and there will be a
lunch on the final day to celebrate the completion of the program.
