Going through the process of practice assignments and discussions really helped me "settle down" and relaxed my mind. It's very much needed for new students."

"I found the Walden Orientation and Welcome to be extremely helpful. In all my college years, I have never experienced so many warm welcomes, support, and extensive resources. Also, I was inspired by the required resources in my first discussion, for example, tips for getting and staying motivated, academic guides, the infographic and much more. I was equally moved by some of the optional resources and materials in the “Try a Week”. The roundtable discussion was awesome. There has been so much support, even prior to me starting the orientation. For me, Walden University has done an exemplary job in the orientation process and providing support. "
