Eating Disorder Information
During college, maintaining a healthy weight and a positive body image can be challenging, especially when academic pressures blend with social expectations. Stress can often translate into skipping meals, compulsive exercising or eating out of control.
NDSU Counseling Center offers an anonymous online screening questionnaire (available free to all NDSU students). If you are concerned about your eating habits, weight or body image - or those of a friend - just click the "online eating disorder screening" link in the box at the top right of this page, and then choose the eating disorders questionnaire (please note that your browser must be set to accept cookies in order to take use the online screening). The questionnaire is confidential and provides immediate feedback as well as information on how to get help if needed. Please also see the links below for a number of informational articles related to eating/body image issues.
