The purpose of this study was to determine if there is a relationship between a college student's diet and their mental health. An anonymous survey was sent out to University of Dayton students asking them to answer questions regarding demographics, housing, meal plan status, and the nutritional value of their diet. Participants were also asked questions about their mental health such as presence of anxiety, depression, if they are or have sought out professional help, have received a diagnosis, or are currently taking medications.
