While the physical activity patterns of K-12 students in the United States are highly investigated via national surveillance projects, it is unclear what percentage of American college students are meeting the most current physical activity and/or exercise recommendations set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and/or the American College of Sports Medicine. As a result, the purpose of this undergraduate honors thesis was to conduct a review of literature to investigate physical activity and/or exercise patterns of American college students. Secondly, this review aimed to identify factors and correlates which are associated with meeting, or not meeting, physical activity and/or exercise recommendations. In addition to presenting the findings of the review, this presentation will provide evidence-based recommendations for increasing physical activity levels among college students.
