For international students winter can be either the most memorable time spent in the USA, or the most forgettable season ever. It all depends on how well you take care of your health. Be healthy, and you will love the snow all around. Catch the flu, and you might want to run away from here. But, if you do catch the flu, you will be grateful if you have an international student health insurance.

For international students who have not experienced harsh winters, here are some tips to stay healthy
  1. Dress in layers. This is the single most important advice to follow. The thickest woolen cloth will not help if that's the only layer. Three considerably thinner clothes - say a t-shirt, a shirt, and a jacket - will work a lot better.

  2. Take the flu shot. Especially with the swine flu still being a real threat.

  3. Err on the side of safety: buy a good international students health insurance policy. In case you do fall ill, let financial worries be the last thing on your mind.

Follow these and some more simple tips, and enjoy the winter. Commenting is not available in this channel entry.
