“LEGO Grad Student” is an anonymous blogger who creates LEGO scenes paired with humorous, but dark, captions that depict the difficulty of graduate school. In one, a spiky-haired LEGO figure has a distressing meeting with his adviser; in another he sneaks into an event for the free food; and in most he goes through some form of existential crisis.

LEGO Grad Student’s work clearly resonates with others. He has seventy-five thousand followers on Facebook alone.

WPSU intern and Penn State graduate student Nico Navarro interviewed Lego Grad Student when he visited Penn State to give a talk about what he’s learned from higher education.
