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.

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. 

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.
