Sleep

Did you know that average college-age students need 9.25 continuous hours of sleep each night for optimal health and academic or athletic functioning?  

Busy schedules and residential living can make achieving this ideal challenging, but there are many things you can do to sleep smart!

If you're having trouble getting sufficient sleep after making adjustments to your routine, call the Health Service to make an appointment with a clinician or health educator.   

Remember: Pulling all nighters, or not getting enough sleep regularly, takes a toll on academic performance.  If you want A's, GET ZZZZZZs. (Source: Dr. Britto).
