Purpose of the CSP Staph. Study was to obtain nasal bacterial isolates from CSP students in order to test and experiment, in the hopes of characterizing genetic characteristics of S. aureus strains found within the human microbiome. The specific focus of this study was done in order to identify which CSP student athletes living in specific dorm halls are at the highest risk of S. aureus carriage on campus. Using recorded data conclusions were made about high risk athletes on campus. After analysis, results pointed to the fact that Soccer players and CSP athletes living in Luther Hall are at highest risk of S. aureus carriage on CSP campus.
