Olivia Tarplin (Global Studies/Gender Studies student who graduated last spring) has transformed her senior thesis on feminist porn into a TEDx talk, which she will be delivering this weekend. If you don’t know about the strange TEDx thing ( https://www.ted.com/about/programs-initiatives/tedx-program ), people do talks on “how to change the world” type themes and the talks are recorded and circulate on their online channel.

http://www.tedxjerseycity.com/ (scroll down to find Olivia in the list of speakers – her talk is called ‘Feminist Porn: Shifting Our Sexual Culture’).

So yes, evidence that one can do something with their senior thesis after all!
