Personal recommendation
organize a bit more activities for the international students. they need a big administrative system change in the whole university too (it would take too long to explain everything)

Final comments
it's a great country, so try to take as much as you can by traveling, trying to know natives and help them to develop (at the townships). don't go to the areas you are told not to, so you can avoid the trouble.
