The comedy of grad student life — finally on film

Remember that little comic I posted a while back from the Piled Higher and Deeper series on phdcomic.com?

Looks like the strip has been made into a movie — though you’d have to arrange a screening at your campus.

From the Web site:

“Piled Higher and Deeper” The Movie is a live-action adaptation of the popular online comic strip by Jorge Cham (www.phdcomics.com). It was filmed on location at and was produced in partnership with the California Institute of Technology (Caltech).

The film introduces audiences to the unique and funny culture of Academia and follows 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.
