Terike Haapoja, Finland (March-May, 2016)
I got many openings to institutions and people that will be helpful in the future. This is really because many of the studio visits were actually matched and not just random people. I also had valuable conversations with RU staff about how to proceed with career planning and networking here in the US. Meeting other residents was made easy and even if a personal studio space isn't included, the RU space is very good for individual working. The staff is great, committed and professional.
