The American College Health Association - National College Health Assessment II

The ACHA-NCHA II is a nationally recognized research survey that assesses a range of health  issues among college students, including:

Alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use

Sexual health

Weight, nutrition, and exercise

Sleep problems

Mental health

Personal safety and violence

Campus-specific questions

Lehigh University has participated in the ACHA-NCHA II annually in the spring since 2013.  The goal of this data collection is to gain a profile of health habits, behaviors, perceptions and trends among Lehigh students and to benchmark against national data.

Once a year, undergraduate and graduate students are randomly selected to participate in this  confidential, web-based survey. Lehigh’s average response rate is 21%. If you are selected, please help us in our efforts to provide every member of our community with the very best health services by taking the time to complete the ACHA-NCHA II.
