Perceived Health of College Students
Scholars have seen an increase in college students susceptibility to health problems due to academic stressors and social needs leading to conditions like depression, anxiety, and stress (Bayram & Bilgel, 2008)
Better understand what college students attributes to overall health
Students believe they are less healthy at college due to limitations of meal plans.
Sleeping schedules at school make it harder for students to perceive themselves as healthy.
Students who use their meal plan more perceive themselves as less healthy.
College students will have a low perception of their own health if their alcohol and drug use is high.
Hypotheses continued:

Perception of health
Frequency of meal plan use
Amount of sleep
Frequency of alcohol consumption
Frequency of drug consumption

H3: Sleeping schedules at school make it harder for students to perceive themselves as healthy. Not supported F(3,255)= 2.4, n.s. ANOVA

H5:College students will have a low perception of their own health if their alcohol use is high. Was supported F(4,255)=2.2, p<.oo5 ANOVA
H5.1College students will have a low perception of their own health if their drug use is high. Not supported F(1,254)=.847,n.s. ANOVA
