The objective of this study is to investigate the nutritional knowledge of undergraduate students at the University of Dayton and how it affects their overall health. The study will be conducted through a survey that will be sent to undergraduate students at the University of Dayton. The participants will receive an electronic consent form and survey that contains questions about nutritional knowledge and personal prioritization of nutrition. Analyzed data will be used to answer questions like if a nutrition CAP requirement would be beneficial to students in college. The survey will be completed through a Google Form that will make it fluid for the researchers to quickly formulate the survey as well as distribute it to students in a timely manner. The questions that will be utilized in this study are to allow the researchers a better understanding of what undergraduate students at the University of Dayton know about the subject of nutrition. Ultimately, this study will show if there is a need for a nutrition curriculum to be added to course requirements. Data collection and results are forthcoming.
