PhD length mention 

There is a groundhog who lives in the hill next to my office

And I tell people

That's the grad school groundhog

If you see it

It means three more years of your PhD

PhD length mention 

This has been an ongoing joke among the grad students in my lab for years

My colleague is now at the point where she's organizing a date for her thesis defence

And today, the grad school groundhog made an appearance, right beside the door to the unit
