The challenges I faced as an international student during the COVID-19 pandemic
When COVID-19 broke out in the U.S., many schools were closed and a large number of international students living on campus found that they no longer had a place to live. As an international student, my social media was full of posts from people who were looking for housing at that time. Fortunately, Baylor allowed all international students to continue to live on campus, and provided services, such as meals and grocery shopping shuttles. However, not all international students were as lucky as Baylor’s. I have a couple of friends in Seattle, Wash. who are international students from Japan and Korea. They ended up living in others’ living rooms or basements for a while.
