Jorge Cham to present 'The Power of Procrastination/The Science Gap' today
A recent survey by University of California, Berkeley found that 95 percent of all graduate students feel overwhelmed, and more than 67 percent have felt seriously depressed at some point in their careers.
Jorge Cham, creator of "The PHD Movie 2" and the PHD Comics, will be on campus to present "The Power of Procrastination/The Science Gap" at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 31, in 1109 DUE, the Engineering Hall Auditorium.
In his talk, Cham will recount his experiences of bringing humor into the lives of stressed out academics, examine the source of their anxieties and explore the guilt, the myth, and the power of procrastination. A book signing will follow the lecture.
The PHD Comics and Cham's visit is sponsored by the Office of the Vice President for Research and the Graduate School.
