Starting Your Thesis – The Writing Center: Sept. 10th

  • 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm, Monday, September 10, 2018, Canaday Library, The Writing Center.
  • RSVP to Jen Callaghan (jcallaghan@BMC) by Sunday, Sept. 9.  Please include your major, and feel free to add questions or describe challenges that you’d like the workshop to address.
