The Kansan (the University of Kansas student newspaper) compares the experiences of three international students who had very different reactions to arriving in Lawrence, Kansas.  One was so overwhelmed with homesickness and stress he made himself ill.

Our very own Sebastian also attends the University of Kansas and wrote about how he adjusted to life in Lawrence.  He concluded that it's much different than Santa Cruz, where he comes from, but that learning about the differences is exactly the point.
