But researchers from Auburn University in Alabama have looked beyond the much-feared weight change over the freshman year and extended their investigation over the duration of a regular college course. Their study which was published in the journal Applied Physiology, Nutrition, and Metabolism (APNM) reports on the impact of higher education on students’ weight, body mass index (BMI), and body composition. Sareen Gropper, a co-author of the study, and her colleagues followed 131 college students through all four years of […]
