The Eagle Thesis and Dissertation Boot Camp is designed to provide a supportive environment for intense, focused writing time, as well as structure and motivation to overcome typical roadblocks in the dissertation process. It is an interruption-free, stress-free, no-excuses-just-do-it writing time for Master's and Ph.D. students.
We intend for Boot Camp to be a model that you can continue on your own. It is our hope that participants will form small self-motivated work groups, utilize the resources available on campus, and stick to an individualized writing schedule with the momentum gained from Boot Camp.
Sound interesting? Here's what's required of you:
If you are accepted and cannot attend, please let us know immediately. It is unacceptable to "no-show" at boot camp. Your advisor will be notified and you will not be allowed to attend the following boot camp.
Each day includes:
"Before the camp, I was just going to quit because I was so overloaded, but now I should actually graduate in May."
"I got more done in the camp than during the entire semester. I wrote about 35 pages."
"This was a good time for me to do this and gave me motivation. I got more done in the last 3 days than the last 3 months. At work it is very noisy. At home it is hard to work because of my son. I am going to go to the Library to work from now on and I also realize that I need to give myself breaks so that I do not get overwhelmed."
