The study used a descriptive type of research. The demographic variables used are gender, annual family income and type of residency. One hundred thirty-nine (139) fourth year radiologic technology students were chosen using purposive sampling. The researchers adapted a questionnaire about the thesis writing experience of the student from the Institute of Teaching and Learning, University of Sydney with some modifications. The study used a 5-point scale where the highest value was interpreted as poor and the lowest value was interpreted as excellent. The data was computed statistically using frequency, percentage, weighted mean, standard deviation, median, Mann Whitney Z value and Kruskall Wallis test. Based on the findings, the following conclusions are drawn: 1) most of the respondents were female, had an annual family income of 250,000 pesos and above and resided at home during thesis writing; 2) the experiences of the respondents on supervision, infrastructure and generic skills scale were all good. The overall experience of the respondents were all good; 3) the study showed that there were no significant differences in the thesis writing experiences of the respondents when grouped according to gender, annual family income and type of residency.
