During on-campus residencies, you will stay at The Hotel at Auburn University. Along with breakfast and lunch, this lodging is provided by the program. It will ensure that you have convenient and comfortable housing during the residency. In addition, Groome Transportation, the airport shuttle from Hartsfield Atlanta Airport, will deliver you to the hotel's front door.
The first residency starts with an opening banquet at The Hotel at Auburn University. The next day you will participate in an outdoor team-building challenge course. This experience gives you the chance to get to know one another. You'll spend the day working on group and individual challenges (both mental and physical). Students often say this course is one of the highlights of their Auburn experience.
Before formal class instruction begins, you will also have an intensive orientation. You will be introduced to the instructional technologies of the program and the student information systems on campus. The first on-campus residency is also used to check in with faculty. It is important that you are comfortable with the distance-learning portion. If there are any troubles, faculty will be there to help you make the appropriate adjustments.
You will also travel with faculty on a series of field studies. The field studies will take you to one international and three domestic real estate development sites. You will get a chance to visit places featuring classic design as well as industry innovations. You can also meet the developers behind the featured projects. This offers insights into planning, development, and financing.
