My Walden Residencies

My Walden Residencies

Where did you attend your first residency?

Atlanta, Georgia

What did you find most valuable about residency?/p>

The emphasis on designing a strong research topic and resources that were shared throughout the residency experience.

How did you network at your residency?

I engaged with faculty and students during breaks throughout the day. In the evening, I was intentional about having at least one night where I spent time with peers doing something non-school related (i.e. exploring the city; dining at a restaurant).
