Presidio Graduate School operates on a residency system. Instead of the regular school schedule of classes every single week, we get together once a month for an intensive, conference style, learning extravaganza. Students and faculty fly in from other parts of the country, and we spend all days and evenings together to take lectures, make presentations and collaborate on teamwork.
Since I am on the full time track, I take 4 classes per semester. Each semester consists of 5 residencies (5 months). This week I am attending my third residency.
