I miss my family - what can I do?
When you come to university, it's natural to miss your family. I'd say the first thing to do is stick it out for at least a month because if you go home you're not going to want to come back. Remember that everybody else is in the same position so make some new friends, find a hobby that you enjoy, go to the student union and join up with a society. If you're really suffering with homesickness, then go and speak to your university counsellor, because a problem shared really is a problem halved and just getting it out in the open will really help you.
