For the average incoming freshman, leaving friends and family to go to college for the first time is often an overwhelming experience. But for international students, these nerves and uncertainties are amplified, as they must travel longer distances and face an entirely new culture and language.

The largest gathering of alumni, parents, students, and friends of Notre Dame in Asia came together this weekend in Beijing.
