Help for graduate students available at ETSU Boot Camp

Those who have nearly completed a graduate degree from any institution are invited to attend the East Tennessee State University Thesis and Dissertation Boot Camp. The four-session “camp” will emphasize writing time in a library computer lab plus options for mini-workshops on topics such as milestones and speed bumps, thesis and dissertation style guides, review of writing mechanics, the review and editing process and organizing literature for review. Participants will receive review and feedback by expert thesis and dissertation readers.

The cost is $150 total and each enrollee should attend all four sessions, which are held on Friday evenings from 5:30-10 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m.-6 p.m., with an option of remaining until 9 p.m. The workshops will be conducted Jan. 24-25, Feb. 7-8, 21-22, and March 21-22. The sessions will be held in room 309 of ETSU’s Charles C. Sherrod Library. The registration fee includes snacks as well as breakfasts and lunches on Saturdays.

Additional work with a tutor on weekdays is available for a charge of $15 per hour, beginning with the second session. Free oral defense practice is also available upon request.

Online registration is available at

The Boot Camp is a collaborative effort of the ETSU School of Graduate Studies, Graduate Council, School of Continuing Studies and Academic Outreach, the Writing Center, the Charles C. Sherrod Library, and graduate faculty.
