Often called the “Dilbert” of academia, Piled Higher and Deeper is the funny and unique comic strip about life (or the lack thereof) in grad school.  Called “hilarious” by the Chronicle of Higher Education website, P.H.D. appears in several university newspapers, including Stanford, MIT, Caltech and Carnegie Mellon. It is also published online at http://www.phdcomics.com, where it receives over 2 million page views a month from over 1000 universities and colleges worldwide, including yours!

About the talk "The power of procrastination": A recent survey by U.C. Berkeley found that 95% of all graduate students feel overwhelmed, and over 67% have felt seriously depressed at some point in their careers. In this talk, Jorge Cham recounts his experiences bringing humor into the lives of stressed out academics, examines the source of their anxieties and explores the guilt, the myth, and the power of procrastination.

Location : Sibley Auditorium, Bechtel Building
Time : 6pm – 7pm
