Dissertation/Thesis Writing Boot Camps
What is it?
The Dissertation/Thesis Writing Boot Camp is a free program sponsored by the Graduate School and the Marriott Library that gives you a chance to make some serious progress on your dissertation during fall and spring breaks.
Note: You must commit to showing up ready to write, Monday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. during the boot camp dates.
The Dissertation Boot Camps aim to help students learn to write more productively by providing the following:
- Comfortable writing space with minimal distractions
- Writing regiment / routine
- Peer motivation and support
- Subject-matter expert help
- Workshops to help you prepare as you research
- Nourishing breakfast every day

If I attended before, may I register again?
Yes, please attend again. Several students have successfully defended and obtained meaningful professional employment after attending one or more boot camps.
Do I have to leave at 1 p.m.?
While the boot camp officially ends at 1 p.m. each day, you're welcome to stay later! The library typically closes at 6 p.m. during breaks.
