I actually lost weight when I started college. Why? more exercise, I had no car so I walked/biked everywhere, and although dorm food is not typically the best place to make healthy choices we had a salad bar and I used that more than the other food available, and I didn't keep food very often in my dorm room. (not to say I didn't snack, just not as much as I did at home) In any case, I think it is doable, just remember those healthy habits that go you to maintenance, and keep exercising if you can. Walking around campus is a good way to keep up some activity and not fall off the exercise wagon.
Good luck to all you students!
