Template Files

(Right-click and choose “Save Link Target As…” or shift-click to download these files.)


proposal-template.tex is a LaTeX file that you can use to write your senior thesis proposal. Download it, edit it to change the sample text to what you want it to say, and compile (or “TeX”) it.

Senior Thesis

Don’t use the sample thesis/Clinic report as the basis of your thesis. Instead, use the hmcthesis-template.tex file, which can be copied to a directory in your home directory from the directory /shared/local/share/texmf/tex/latex/hmcthesis/.

If you’re planning on working on your own machine (remember, your thesis must compile on our systems to be accepted!), you can download the LaTeX document-class file package from the thesis class page as a tar or ZIP file. The archive includes the hmcthesis-template.tex file.

Presentation Days Poster

The poster printing page includes information on obtaining and using the LaTeX document class or Powerpoint for producing a poster for display during Presentation Days. That page also includes pointers to the LaTeX source for sample posters that you can use to guide you when creating your own poster.
