The student lifeworld has changed due to Bologna Process. Independence, the ability to handle criticism, as well as interdisciplinary competences have been replaced by valuing education as a competitive commodity. College graduates are expected to contribute to economy upon graduation, show themselves able to compete and succeed on national and international levels. Therefore a structuring has been implemented, one in which bachelor, master, and PhD degrees are structured. This structure includes a defined timeframe and a high level of performance. These regulations are the outward indicators, while internally increased demands are placed during this delicate stage of life. This pressure necessitates an outlet. The question is posed: Does the level of physical and athletic activity correlate with psychological health, life-satisfaction and satisfaction with ones studies? 440 students (79% female) at Karl-Franzens-University were polled by means of an online questionnaire, composed of the German version of the General Health Questionnaire GHQ-28 (Klaiberg/Schumacher/Brähler 2004), life-satisfaction and satisfaction with ones studies scale (Hofmann 2010) and Lüdenscheider Activity Questionnaire (Höltke/Jakob 2002). Contrary to the expectation, a connection between levels of psychological health, life-satisfaction and satisfaction with ones studies and measure of physical and athletic activity could not be established. The main results indicate that 35% of the studentsGHQ-scores reveal a tendency towards emotional distress. 84% are satisfied with their life while 66% are satisfied with their studies and achievements. Female students scored significantly lower than men in both areas covered by GHQ and life-satisfaction questions. There was no significant difference between male and female scores pertaining to satisfaction with ones studies. The results show female students as significantly less physically and athletically active than their male counterparts.
