Identifying factors that contribute to the onset of eating disorders is fundamental to implement an early therapy. A total of 1025 female freshmen were screened to find predictive factors for eating disorders. The SCOFF Test, the EAT 26 and a questionnaire developed for the survey were used. In total, 10.5% of students showed a BMI <18.5. Percentages of 14.9% and 5.6% were found at risk for anorexia or bulimia with the EAT 26 and SCOFF test, respectively. The percentage was higher, 17.7%, with the other questionnaire. Results show that for an early identification of eating disorders it could be more useful a combination of different screening tools instead of a single one.
