Nutrition for college students is an extremely important topic and this particular population is notoriously known for their poor diet and high stress. During this time, many college students will develop poor eating habits as a result of poor time management and continue to utilize these poor habits throughout all of college and even after. The purpose of this study was to investigate the nutritional level of students living on the University of Dayton campus. Researchers worked to see whether or not participants nutritional intake while eating food provided on campus or made in their home on campus met their nutritional needs. Using a cross-sectional research model, students from the University of Dayton were recruited via text and email. The participants were provided a survey to better understand their undergraduate grade level, what they ate the past 2 days, and how they got their food (home cooked, dining hall, eating out, etc.).
