Michigan State University to New International Students: Know the Law

Waldo police departmentIn last week’s blog post, guest writer Gwen said it can take some adjusting to study abroad in the US.

An article from Michigan State University’s student newspaper reminds foreign students studying in the US that one important thing to adjust to is the rule of law. All students – regardless of country – must follow US, local, and school rules.

Read about some of the common regulations encountered by foreign students, from traffic rules (be careful making left turns!) to grabbing drinks with friends (make sure you’re 21, and be prepared to show ID), and remember: the easiest way to avoid breaking the law is knowing the laws in the first place.
