Did you know? College students need an average of 9-10 hours of sleep per night!

Research has shown that students getting adequate amounts of sleep perform better on memory and motor tasks than students deprived of sleep. After only two weeks of sleeping six hours or less a night, students can feel as bad and perform as poorly as someone who has gone without sleep for 48 hours,” says Dr. Epstein, Medical Director of Sleep Health Center in Brighton, Massachusetts

“… Sufficient sleep is not a luxury—it is a necessity—and should be thought of as a vital sign of good health.” Wayne H. Giles, MD, MS, Director, Division of Adult and Community Health, National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion
