Apparently, there’s a link between going to university and eating disorders.

In an illness that is all about coping mechanisms and self identify issues and peer pressures and social expectations, university is fertile ground for eating disorders; whether you’ve already been grabbed, or are caught unawares -
University is not as easy as you think it will be. It’s just that nobody admits it – until later.
If you’re a struggling student, you’re not on your own – and there are people out there to help you.
Have a look at the Student Counselling website, and contact your counselling service or check out your college/university’s website or call one of the national help numbers.
