As a mandatory part of an undergraduate degree in almost all universities, students are required to write their undergraduate thesis in order to receive their degree. It is not an easy job, because there are many challenges and problems while planning and writing their paper. Many students are quite frustrated and tensed as their degree depends on their final thesis submission. On the other hand, the process are not always cause the student become depresssed and fail. The condition is due to the support from the people around them. This study took a qualitative approach to explain that fenomena.
