In order to get more information about S. aureus, nasal swab participants were willingly swabbed for samples. For this research we were looking to see who was negative or positive for having S. aureus. Each participant filled out a survey, which included a variety of questions. One of the questions asking if they are a student athlete at Concordia University. The purpose of this study was to look at the difference between the student athlete results, compared to those that are not.
