You Are Not Alone!

It’s normal to miss what’s most familiar to us. In fact, 50% of students feel homesick at various points in their university experience. Following a few steps can help you make ISU feel more like home.

GET CONNECTED:
ISU has thousands of students and staff. Take steps to meet some new people.  

INVITE OTHERS TO EXPLORE ISU WITH YOU: It’s often more fun to check out the campus with friends. 

KEEP A POSITIVE ATTITUDE:
One way to break a negative cycle is to concentrate on the positive aspects of your new environment. Whether it’s friends, interesting classes, or a new leadership position, remember good things are possible every day at a ISU.

STAY IN TOUCH WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY: A word from home is often encouraging, but also keep open the possibility of meeting others.
