"Students must avoid the last minute rush to do school assignments. Start early so that you can have enough time to contact your instructor if it becomes necessary to do so for clarifications on assignments. Submitting assignments on time always prevents losing 20% of your grade. However, find time to relax and do fun stuff!

Why did you choose Walden University?
I learned about Walden University from friends who were also Walden University students in 2015. When I visited the website, I liked what I read from there and so I decided to enroll in the Ph.D. Epidemiology, which is a public health program.
What have you learned about yourself so far in your doctoral journey?
Walden University programs are vigorous, and I have benefited from it tremendously. The program has enlightened me about the valuable inputs that policymakers could develop to enrich the quality of life for humanity.
Where did you attend your first residency?
I attended my first residency at the Sheraton Hotel in Dallas, TX in 2016.
What did you find most valuable about residency?
The residency offered me the opportunity to meet in person some of the faculty, academic advisors, librarians, writing center staff, and technical support as well as interacting with fellow students to build networks. During that residency in Dallas, Walden students who are Ghanaians formed an association. Today, our membership has grown to 64!
How did you network at your residency?
Yes, Walden students from Ghana in various programs have formed a network that discusses experiences from the residencies and how to register and attend it. We discuss dissertation writing and selection of Chair for dissertations
