I'll probably lose weight at uni, it's my mum who forces me to eat. :|

I don't know. I'm still trying to understand the question.

But the stereotypical lifestyle of a student (takeways, alcholol and late nights) takes its toll.

I've lost a lot of weight since starting university, but I do have constant panda eyes now. :p:
Still, that could just be an age thing.

Everyone is different. Some people's health deteriorates, some gets better, and others stay the same.

I've lost a lot of weight, but there are people (more my friends who've gone to other unis actually) who have gained a lot. I probably do have bigger eye bags though!

I've lost a bit, but that's mainly due to not having any food in the flat and always being too lazy to go to Tesco.

If I am understanding what you are asking correctly, this is my answer:

I don't think any of that stuff has anything to do with university; more to do with growing up and lifestyle choices.

One could choose to live healthily at university and there are normally a lot less working hours and stress than living in the real world. Probably why students tend to seem a fresher faced lot than the average.

I lost weight when I started, now I think I'm putting it back on. But I've eaten awfully this week, hopefully I will get back on track sooner or later.
I think i sleep more, so my bags are less, but I seldom wear makeup because i JUST CAN'T BE BOTHERED so you probably see them more :p:

I'm hoping to lose weight at University actually It's my Mum that feeds me well, and I'd probably feed myself well but just not as much. Plus there are many gyms and sports centres at Uni, so I plan to make good use of them It's a fresh start in life hopefully when I go ^^

I don't know about balding, eye bags or health problems. I imagine the work is a lot harder, but there's also more time to yourself compared to now perhaps. I think those people are the ones that go out all of the time, and stay up late to finish their work instead of getting it done early and then having a good time
