Getting Through Graduate School, with PhD Comics' Jorge Cham
Wednesday, November 01, 2017
Hector F. DeLuca Forum, Discovery Building
A 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.
