Dissertation/Thesis Write-Ins

Update: The Ohio State University has announced the suspension of face-to-face instruction of lectures, discussion sections, seminars, and other similar classroom settings, and the move to virtual instruction effective immediately and through the end of the semester. Also, events deemed nonessential between now and April 20 are subject to review, to evaluate whether they should continue in person. Based on these guidelines, the remaining dissertation/thesis write-ins for the spring 2020 semester have been cancelled.

Having trouble staying focused on writing your thesis or dissertation? Or are you looking for a quiet space to focus without distractions? Then come join one of our write-ins!

A write-in is a quiet space for students to get together to write independently in community and is a very effective tool for many people. Ideally, all notes from literature should be prepared and available and all statistical analyses completed, but if you are not quite ready to write and want to take advantage of this opportunity to work on stats or research you are still welcome to attend. Snacks and tea will be provided.

Seats are limited and available on a first come basis and we can comfortably accommodate approximately 12 people. If necessary, a waiting list will be created and students will be notified when a seat becomes available. Email reminders will be sent two days prior to each session.
