Lolmythesis: BCB Edition 2021

On Saturday May 23rd, BCB’s Class of 2021 held their online commencement ceremony – congratulations! An important step for graduation is the BA thesis project, which fourth-year students work on tirelessly.  This year they explored everything from art and nature, to democracy, to tragedy, to social media. 

In celebration of the completion of their theses (and the end of this chaotic and stressful process), Die Bärliner presents the third edition of Lolmythesis. Inspired by the original widely-known blog, we asked current seniors to summarize months and years of research and hard work into a single sentence. This resulted in some interesting spins on their thesis titles and subjects, and allowed them to look back at the thesis process with a bit of humor. 

Congratulations to the BCB Class of 2021! We wish you all the best for your future.
