Event announcement

Just hours after our BBQ next Wednesday, there will be a screening of the new Jorge Cham film ‘Piled Higher and Deeper’ at 7:00pm, September 21 in the Baer-Fuller Lecture Hall in Kelley Auditorium. The film is based on Cham’s popular PhD Comic about the lives of graduate students and postdocs.

This event is brought to you by the Graduate Student Association, Graduate Education, College of Arts and Sciences, and Pepsi. Refreshments will be provided before the screening and there will be a panel discussion of the film and its relation to the experiences of graduate students immediately after. All are encouraged to attend.

If you miss this screening, there is another screening on September 26 at 6:00pm at Washington University in Saint Louis featuring a Q&A session with Jorge Cham and cast members.

Here is a link to a list of all the scheduled screenings of the film around the world.
