Abstract

Insufficient sleep, especially among students is an increasing concern. The transition from high school to college has altered the sleep patterns of many students for the better. The results from the sleep survey indicated that college is more suitable than high school for sleeping with the majority of the students experiencing an increase in sleep time since attending college. Regardless if students are in high school or college, sleeping for the recommended nine hours each night is still a goal that students have trouble meeting. The major factors students indicated as affecting their amount of sleep include: amount of homework, extracurricular activities, electronics and social activities.
