Hello All--

I had responded off-list to Maria, but it appears a number of us are
involved in some way with distance PhD programs.  I live in Kentucky and am
studying at Texas Tech.  I have not found many of the limitations that
others have mentioned.  TTU manages to build accessibility and collegiality
into this program in a number of ways.

Hi everyone...
great to hear from you, Maria Elisa, - there are several distance PhD
students studying at Curtin University - well, studying at home, but through
Curtin uni! The experience is sometimes quite difficult because of the
isolation; on the other hand, I know students also find it very helpful
because they don't need to disrupt their lives and travel and be oncampus.
Most of the students with us are older and have work commitments/ family
I hope that AoIR, and all of us on the air-l provide a sense of connection
for you :)
