Welcome back to all students, particularly our HUSC seniors! We’ve got a great group working on some really interesting thesis projects.
Mary Moss, our current HUSC senior, will be presenting her senior thesis this Thursday, April 27, at 2pm in HSC 114. Here thesis is entitled: “Smokers, Drinkers, and Independent Thinkers: A Study of Alcohol at the University of Dallas.” She looks at the role of alcohol on college campuses, in general, then examines the intersections between college-age alcohol consumption, Catholic Tradition, and Western Tradition, using UD as an ethnographic case study.
