A recent study on sleep deprivation found that around 60 percent of college students are sleep
deprived. Another 30 percent fall asleep in class at least one day a week. Often, sleep deprivation
and college are synonymous. It has almost become part of the college culture.

Sleep Deprivation in College Students


Sleep deprivation in college students can affect their grades. Studies have shown students who
get A’s and B’s get an average of 35 more minutes of sleep per night than their counterparts who get
D’s and F’s. And they also sleep at the same time each night, every night.

So if you are a college student suffering from sleep deprivation, that is the number one thing you can
do to start getting more sleep. I know it is tempting to go out and party with your friends, but you
need to take proper care of your health first. This leads me to my next point. Alcohol is a big trigger
of insomnia, so watch the amount that you drink. Actually, if you are under 21, you should not be
drinking at all, but that is a different matter entirely.
