Catawba Student Makes Poster Presentation at Honor Society Convention
April 9, 2015
Kyle Mechling of Quinton, Va., a double major in Physical Education and Spanish, presented a poster at the 2015 Alpha Chi Honor Society National Convention in Chicago in March.
His poster highlighted his mixed methods research project entitled College weight change: the perception of upperclassmen on their weight change from freshman year.
Mechling’s research concluded that the average upperclassman college student experiences a significant perceived weight change from his/her freshman year and this perceived weight change is caused by a variety of factors including diet, motivation and/or perception.
