Lolmythesis: BCB Edition 2022

On Friday April 8th, BCB’s Class of 2022 held their BA thesis turn-in reception—congratulations to us! This project is a milestone in our BCB careers, one which we’ve worked on tirelessly for many months. This year, students explored everything from blockchain technology, to musical expression, to environmentalism. 

In celebration of the completion of the thesis (and the end of this intense and often chaotic process), Die Bärliner presents its fourth 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 our thesis titles and subjects, and allowed us to look back at the thesis process with a bit of humor. 

Congratulations Class of 2022!
