The first few weeks away from home can be tough for new college students, but experts at University of Texas at Dallas say there are ways to alleviate homesickness and enjoy life on campus.

“We encourage students to take some simple steps to bridge life away from home,” said Dr. Jim Cannici, a psychologist with the Student Counseling Center. “They should learn their way around campus and get to know their roommates. The people they live with are going through similar experiences and can be a good support network.”

“Getting involved on campus is a great way to make new friends and feel more connected,” he says. “It’s only natural that there will be times when students miss family and friends at home, but students should find a balance between social and academic activities.”

Finally, if students start to feel overwhelmed, Cannici suggests they seek professional help, either through a campus health or counseling center.
