The Graduate College will host a free screening of “The PHD Movie 2: Still in Grad School” at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 17 in Foellinger Auditorium. The doors open at 6 p.m. The event is open to all graduate students.
The film follows the adventures of a band of graduate students who attend an important academic conference and square off against a rival group to compete for results and grant money. What will befall Cecilia, whose adviser is going on sabbatical, leaving her with two choices – finish her thesis or spend another year in graduate school? The film is based on the popular comic strip “Piled Higher and Deeper,” by Jorge Cham.
