|A recent 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.|
Cham's talk was humorous and helpful. His cartoon strip has
been a giant plus in helping graduate students acknowledge
and cope with the stress they experience."
- Isaac Colbert, Dean of Graduate Students, M.I.T.
"I've never heard so many graduate students *really* laughing at the same time!"
-Jory Zmuda Ruscio, Chair, Graduate Life Center's Speaker Series, Virginia Tech

-John Nonnamaker, Graduate Student Career Development, M.I.T.
