  • The Schools of Integrated Health Sciences and Public Health are conducting research on depression and fitness levels in college students. We are interested in knowing if the measures employed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic have affected your health.
  • We are inviting you to participate because you are students at UNLV, a highly diverse university.  College students are reported to experience high levels of depression but little is known about the relationship of college depression and fitness level, academic status, and diversity. 
  • The results of this study could contribute to the development of safe, effective options for the treatment of student depression and provide information for university stakeholders to better support students in time of crisis.
  • You are eligible for inclusion if you are age ≥ 18 years and a student at UNLV during the 2020-2021 school year.
  • You will be asked to answer some questions about your physical activity practices, academic status, demographic and background information, lifestyle, and mood. 
  • You will not be asked to provide your name in the survey, and the survey software will not collect identification dataPlease be assured that your responses are anonymous and that all of the collected responses will be kept completely confidential. 
  • The investigators will scientifically analyze the results from all responses and report the findings in one or more articles or poster presentations.  
  • It should take up to 15 minutes to complete the survey. 
  • If you have any questions or would like to participate in the research, contact sharon.jalene@unlv.edu or 702-895-3946.
