High Cholesterol in college?

I'm a 19 year old female going in to my second year of college. I went for a physical before heading to China for the summer and found out I have really high cholesterol. My doctor suggested a healthier diet and moderate exercise plan. My dad has high cholesterol, but I have been a year round athlete since middle school, workout 6 days a week, and eat generally healthy for most meals. Any advice as to how I can get this cholesterol in hand, or is it mainly genetics? Their advice is mostly incorporated into my daily life, not quite sure about what else to change to drop it a few points. I'd appreciate your help!!! Thanks!!
