Students were questioned, body weight and height, and BMI was calculated. Descriptive statistics were used to analyze the data. The mean age of the students was 21.96±1.77 years and the majority of them (77.8%) were women. 43.2% of the students staying in dorms, 76.6% skip meals, 9.3% were dieting. 72.6% of the students have normal BMI range (≥18.5-<25.0).
