Moving away from your hometown to university is a big transition. You may suffer from homesickness and it is totally fine to be like this. To give you some help, here are some great tips to get through it.
1. It is okay to ask for help
There is no shame to ask. You may think that it is a dumb question and it will make you look stupid but this is only your perception.
2. Home comfort
Whatever things bring you comfort, bring them along with you. Or decorate your room which will make you feel comfortable.
3. Stay positive and strong
Don’t ever let someone say you can’t do it. There’s no excuse, just believe in yourself and go ahead.
4. Explore your surroundings
When we are unfamiliar with our surroundings, we will feel homesick. So, it is be a great idea to explore your city so you will feel more at home. As a student here, you will get free entry to some of the museums and colleges.
5. Keep your expectations realistic
