RE:     Today, 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.: Two Showings of "The PhD Movie!" on Campus

Today (Tuesday, August, 14, 2012), the UF Graduate Student Council (GSC) is hosting two showings of the extremely popular film, "The PhD Movie!"

Both showings will take place in the Reitz Union Cinema, on the second floor of the Reitz Union building on campus.

The first showing is from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The second showing is from 8:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.

"The PhD Movie!" is a live-action movie adaption of "Piled Higher and Deeper," a popular online comic strip by Jorge Cham (, filmed on location at the California Institute of Techology ("Caltech").

It introduces audiences to the unique and funny culture of academia, following four graduate students (Cecilia, Mike, Tajel and the "Nameless Grad Student") as they struggle to find balance between research, teaching and their personal lives, with humor and heart.
