    A great PhD graduation gift

    I bought the magnets for a friend who just defended their thesis. They loved it!

    Unique gift for coworkers (and myself!)

    Love them! Such a good variety of words to choose from! This was my second time purchasing! I bought a set for my graduate professor when they first came out a couple years ago and I just bought nearly the entire collection for our STEM Research Center at Amarillo College! The students and faculty really get a kick out them! The most recent phrase: “Violent tardigrade blackmailed poor undergrad.”
