Dissertation House Summer 2012 at College Park … A Success!


The results are in! The Dissertation House at College Park was a success. Dr. Carter-Veale and Dr. Alexis Williams recorded the full range of sentiments, reflections, and take-home messages on our Summer 2012 Challenge, and on the PhD Completion website.   Here is a subset of those highlights:

  • Own the dissertation process
  • Don’t try to avoid it
  • Visualize yourself in your cap and gown
  • Change your perception of productivity
  • Trust yourself, own your process
  • Set a date and create a schedule. Start the countdown!
