Life on campus is often a far cry from life at home. Whether you’re going from a rural or suburban environment to a big city (or vice versa!), learning to navigate life in a different climate or time zone, or just too far away to ask Mom to help with laundry, there are questions every new and returning college student has. While RAs and other campus support staff may have answers to some of these questions, the NFTY Alumni Network is here to help you maintain your Jewish lifestyle even when you’re far from home.
