student weight gain, nutrition environment
Research indicates that weight gain is common among traditional college students. The purpose of this study was to obtain descriptive information about the dietary habits of full time Grand Valley State University Students (GVSU). The subjects were students in public health concepts, clinical nutrition, and liberal studies classes. The students completed a survey consisting of questions on age, gender, class level, enrollment status, frequency of usage of campus dining facilities, residency status, kitchen status, and frequency of late night consumption. This study is the first to describe the nutrition environment at GVSU and the potential role this environment may play in student weight gain.
