The total mean score of anorexia nervosa was higher than bulimia nervosa. 5. The score of eating disorer differed significantly by the BMI : The score was highest in the group of normal body weighted(t=-6.941, p=.000). 6. No significant difference was found on body image according to the BMI. 7. No significant difference was found on depression according to the BMI. 8. No significant difference was found on self-esteem according to the BMI. 9. There was high positive correlation between BMI and eating disorder(r=.383, p<.01), between eating disorder and depression(r=.161, p<.01), between body image and self-esteem(r=.653, p<.01), and there was high negative correlation between eating disorder and body image(r=-.214, p<.01), between eating disorder and self-esteem(r=-.196, p<.01), between depression and body image(r=-.541, p<.01), between depression and self-esteem(r=-.537, p<.01). Therefore, eating disorder, body image, depression and self-esteem are interrelated. Recently many of college women are engrossed in improper diet. So, We have to educate to receive themselves positively , and have to take care of themselves individually.
