Here is my Preamble:

\usepackage{indentfirst}
\usepackage[page,titletoc,title]{appendix}
\hypersetup{

\end{titlepage}

\end{document}

I am trying to delete that empty page that is in between the approval page and the table of contents.

  • What does \usepackage{grad_proseminar} do? If it is not relevant to the issue, remove it. If it is, please provide it. And there is a \begin{document} missing and it seems that some relevant packages are not loaded. – marmot Aug 6 '18 at 23:30
  • It a template for my undergraduate proseminar. – Crystal Thompson Aug 6 '18 at 23:34
  • When I take out \usepackage{grad_proseminar} out of the preamble , there i an error that says that the command \advisor is undefined. – Crystal Thompson Aug 6 '18 at 23:43
  • Well there is no link to it, since this temple was provide by my University. – Crystal Thompson Aug 6 '18 at 23:50
  • Yes, I do agree with what you. I see that I tried to take the short cut and tried to include all the important parts about my dilemma and see that I left out a few keep components to the code. Thanks for the nice tips. – Crystal Thompson Aug 7 '18 at 0:30
