College students are known to get little sleep, often caused when sleep patterns become disrupted due to stress, sickness, extracurricular activities, work, academics and a variety of personal reasons, reports The Guardian.
“Twenty percent of students pull all-nighters at least once a month and 35 percent stay up past three in the morning once or more weekly,” according to FastWeb. Students don’t always get the sleep they need to keep up with their daily activities and responsibilities.
“An average adult typically needs between seven and nine hours of sleep a night. College students may need a little more than that depending on individual differences, but I would say a minimum of seven but probably a little bit more.” Pam Garverick, instructor and assistant chair for the Department of Psychology, stated.
