Data collection device was a questionnaire with two parts the first part was related to demographic information and the second part was about different aspects of lifestyle including anthropometric index, nutrition, physical activity, exercise, and habits. Data was analyzed using statistical methods, t-test, chi-square and frequency table with a confidence level of 95%.

Results: Findings of the study showed that more than 80 percent of students had a desirable body mass index, 46 percent of them had a good physical activity, and approximately 32 percent of them had enough sun exposure. More than a third of them were exposed to second hand smoke, and less than 4 percent had nutritionally desirable lifestyle.
