National College Health Assessment (NCHA)

About the NCHA

The National College Health Assessment (NCHA) is a national survey of undergraduates administered by the American College Health Association. The survey asks students a wide variety of questions related to their health habits, behaviors, and perceptions. These areas include: alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use; sexual health; weight, nutrition, and exercise; mental health; and personal safety and violence.

St. Olaf participated in the NCHA during spring 2018. The survey was sent to all current students, and 610 responded (response rate of 22%). A copy of the 2018 survey instrument can be found here.
