The purpose of this study was to clarify whether or not there is a correlation between diet, exercise, stress and perceived personal health among college students. This study focuses on if age affects the amount of exercise and a person’s diet considering their stress levels, and perception of health. Surveys were distributed and students (N=30) at Montana Tech/Highlands College in Butte, Montana were asked to complete them following approval from the University of Montana Institutional Review Board. The results of this study concluded that non-traditional age students seem to get more things accom-plished, even though they reported higher levels of stress than traditional age students.
