If you're applying to study in the U.S., you've probably been worrying about whether or not you'll get that acceptance letter in the mail. Once you do, you'll have a whole new set of things to worry about, including decisions like where to live and with whom. Al-Jamiat
has been offering some advice on how to approach these practicalities of your first year.
She's covered whether to live on or off campus
("you have to determine the best option to match your lifestyle"), how to live with a roommate
("it’s probably a good idea to discuss décor"), and how to choose about your major
("think long and hard about what you really enjoy").
The website is targeted at Middle Eastern students, but the advice is useful for any international student.
