Or, even better, you can make arrangements for a friend or family member to come visit you at school. It can also help to immerse and integrate yourself into your new environment. You might try joining an intra-mural sports team or a club that you are interested in. Maybe attend a meet-and-greet on campus.

The late night studying and partying contribute as well, both because additional meals and snacks are consumed, and because the body's metabolism slows when it doesn't get sufficient rest. Add in the fact that alcohol consumption may double the number of calories a student consumes daily, it's not surprising that most collegiates gain weight. it's not surprising that most collegiates gain weight.More »
