6:30 p.m. - Free Screenings: The PhD Movie and The PhD Movie 2 at Memorial Auditorium

The PHD Movies are a live-action adaptation of the popular online webcomic "Piled Higher and Deper (PHD)" about life (or the lack thereof) in Academia. With humor and heart, the film follows the plight of two graduate students as they try to find meaning and balance in the annals of Academia. Eventually, they learn that getting a Ph.D. is as much about finding truth in research as it is about finding truth in yourself. Watch the trailer. http://www.phdcomics.com/movie/ PhD Movie: 6:30 pm PhD Movie 2: 8:00 pm
