Does your thesis or research paper need a boost? Then join us for this 3-day writing event, hosted in a supportive and motivating setting, and take a leap towards finishing your writing project.

Thesis Boost is for graduate students who are in the middle to later stages of writing their thesis or research paper. We have reserved the beautiful Loyola Jesuit Hall and Conference Centre and are inviting graduate students to spend 3 days, advancing their writing project and adopting some good writing habits. 

In partnership with the Library, the Student Success Centre, Health Services and le Gym, we will offer optional workshops, goal-setting activities, consultations with librarians and writing advisors, and healthy snacks - supports to help you stay focused and productive. 

Registration for this event is now closed.



Participants should have begun writing their thesis prior to participating in this event.
