Abstract: The dietary habits of college women have increasingly interested dietitians, nutritionists and research workers for the past half-century. Food habits at college depend upon home dietary practices more or less modified by the influence of knowledge gained in college. The data for this study were obtained from the records kept at one of the home management houses on the campus of the Woman's College of the University of North Carolina, at Greensboro, North Carolina. The occupants of the house were home economics seniors whose food habits would be expected to show the influence of four years of training in home economics. They averaged twenty-one years of age and 126 pounds in weight. The students came from middle class homes.
