Q: Exhausted and ill, he dragged himself around campus, lacking even much in the way of an appetite.

what does "lacking even much in the way of an appetite" mean? ne anlama geliyor?
A: You could rephrase it as "... campus, not even feeling much need to eat." Or "... campus, not even feeling very hungry." Or "...campus, not even having much of an appetite." Or "... not even feeling much desire to eat."

It's a bit wordy as is. The main offender is "in the way of," although it's natural enough in speech. All of the alternate versions above leave out anything resembling "in the way of." But there are a few similar "filler" phrases, that people throw in when they're thinking on the fly. "... not even feeling much along the lines of a desire to eat" or "... not even feeling much that you/we might call a real appetite" and so on. So "in the way of," and "along the lines of" and "that you might call" don't add much to the meaning as such. In speaking, they're used to borrow time to find the right word; in writing, they're there to try to make the dialogue feel real.


Q: go off campus ne anlama geliyor?

Q: I walked to this campus this morning. It took ten minutes to walk from the hotel I stay to this campus. During the walk, I noticed that the road in this town is far wider than in my hometown.

A: I walked to the campus this morning, it took ten minutes from the hotel. While walking, I noticed the road in this town is far wider than in my hometown. There were also more cars on the street as well. I was surprised by the sounds made by those cars.

In the first sentence, you should not use "this" two times if you say "this campus" it would only sound natural if you were at the campus when saying that sentence. I changed it to "the campus" to make it sound more natural.
I joined the first two sentences together and eliminated the "I stay to this campus" because if you join the two sentences together it's implied that you are staying at the hotel, and it took ten minutes to walk to the campus.
Your third sentence was well written, optionally you could remove the "during the walk," part and just go straight to "I noticed the road..."
In your forth sentence, you don't have to compare the cars on the street to the street in your town. You can simply say "as well" because the listener will know you're talking about a comparison to your hometown because it was mentioned in the previous sentence.

Overall, well written though! I can tell you have a pretty good command of English already.
Q: Now I'm really enjoying campus life in Tokyo here. bu doğru görünüyor mu?
A: It would sound more natural if you said "here in Tokyo" or if the person you're talking to knows you're in Tokyo you could even just say "...enjoying campus life here."
