College students are an important population to consider when trying to slow the COVID-19 pandemic. While young people display less serious symptoms of the infection, their tendency to have asymptomatic infections increases risk to campus and surrounding comminities. The goal of WhiV VWXd\ ZaV Wo XnderVWand hoZ IllinoiV SWaWe UniYerViW\ VWXdenWV¶ social distancing behaviors and beliefs about the COVID-19 pandemic differed from that of students at other colleges/universities. We administered a nationwide survey that asked about social distancing practices, experience with COVID-19, amount of trust in science and likelihood to receive the COVID-19 vaccination. This poster presents findings to four research questions: 1) Do ISU students differ from non-ISU students in their social distancing practices? 2) Do ISU students differ from non-ISU students in their experience with COVID-19? 3) Do ISU students differ from non-ISU students regarding their trust in science? 4) Do ISU students differ from non-ISU students regarding their likelihood of receiving the COVID-19 vaccine? We conclude that ISU students practice social distancing more than non-ISU students, ISU students have had more experience with COVID-19 than non-ISU students, ISU students trust in science more than non-ISU students and ISU students are more likely to get the COVID-19 vaccination than nonISU students.
