What should my student do if he or she becomes homesick?

First-year students face numerous challenges and some struggle at first. We advise them to give it a little time, get engaged with their academic work, eat the right foods, engage in regular exercise, get enough sleep, get into their academic work, invest in their relationships with their roommates, join a club or organization and establish a good working relationship with their advisor or another faculty or staff member.

The office of Student Success is committed to the continuing development of a supportive environment that will enable first-year students to build the strong base essential for academic and social success at Kent State University.
