I'm almost certain there is a link between them for me. I'm not talking about refined sugar, oil, etc either. My cystic acne was completely cleared over winter break (1month) because I wasn't eating the food that they serve in the dining hall at my college. My acne was almost completely CLEARED! Simply from not eating the college food, and I had developed moderate-severe breakouts during the first semester (I have had acne for 3 yrs, but in the past 4 months at college its gotten the worst I've ever had it and was 1 step away from accutane). I was eating sugar at home and oil and chocolate! The second day back at college I get my first cystic acne breakout in about 3 weeks. I dont know what this means but I can only think of one thing that changes between home and school and thats what I EAT. Agh. What are they putting in the food?!

test it then. Stop eating the dining hall food and eat like you do at home. Dining hall food at college or food in schools is often very very cheap food, and nutrient depleted.
and if you go out drinking in college, but not over break, then don't do that either. same with coffee habits, etc.
you'll figure out. The two people with severe acne in Dr. Walford's biosphere cleared "rapidly" on the optimal nutrition diet. This sounds like what happened with you when you went home. It may simply be a nutritional problem. Of course, everyone's body decides what nutrition it needs to function well. Maybe it is easier for you.
