I too am a college student. I also am fortunate enough to have access to a gym on campus. I don't eat school food, as I don't live on campus. You could see if your school offers nutritional information for the meals they serve. If not, maybe that could be something you could petition for. You're likely not the only college student looking to get healthy, or prevent weight gain.
As far as exercise is concerned, if you don't have a gym, you can always walk around campus after class. I don't work, so I have time between classes, but I do remember what it was like to work full time and take 12 credits. There's also the possibility-if you can fit it into your schedule, that you could take exercise classes. They're usually 1 credit courses, and since your grade depends on attendance, you have to go. Before having access to the gym, I would take aerobics classes or kickboxing, and even a jogging class that got me really motivated about running, and I haven't stopped jogging since! That would force me to get exercise in at least 3 times a week. I would also go on short 30 minute walks. That really helped.
