Is college screwing up my periods?

Hi there,
i'm a freshmen in college who is not sexually active at all. Last month my period was late by a week and a half and now this week its going on the second week late. I don't know why. I don't have sex. I'm a nerd who is always with a book not out sleeping with someone. I don't know why or what's happening. Does anyone have an explanation?
