Most students, regardless where they go to school, will experience some adjustment challenges. It is normal to feel some home sickness as you get settled in a new place and build your community. It is also natural for students to go through an adjustment period as they work through new academic rigors. Cornell encourages help-seeking behavior beginning with Orientation in August, helping to educate students about the many academic and residential resources available to them.
