You are no longer told when do to your homework, what time to go to bed, and when to go out. However with these new freedoms come more responsibilities as well. For example laundry, managing when you do work, and making sure you are on top of work is all a college students new responsibilities. These new responsibilit-ies cause much added stress to the academic and social pressures that fresh-man face already. In the following study we wanted to see how the stress that Wellesley first-years encounter effects them, specifically how it effects their eat-ing and exercising habits. Most people who we interviewed considered themselves to be healthy eat-ers while eating on campus during a normal week, and their typical meals reflec-ted that as well.
