WEEKEND THESIS UNDERTAKING
Weekend Thesis Undertaking (WTU for short) is weekend dedicated to writing your thesis. Why? Because peer pressure works! So take your laptop with you, bring yourself to the common room in the R-building in Kortepohja, meet others who are also battling with their Master’s or Bachelor’s thesis, set a goal for the weekend and share it with the others. Then just get to work! On Sunday we will check how these goals are accomplished.
