Jobs wiping out college kids

Adam Knowlden, assistant prof at University of Alabama's dept of health science, coauthored an article in Family and Community Health saying college students were exhausted.

Sixty percent of the college student population does not get enough sleep (that is 30% for the general population).

The cause: job stress and lack of time.

Naturally, there is a study. 188 Univ of Cincinnati students in 2012.

Students were more worried about inadequate sleep hurting them in the present than in their long-term health.

They cited having a sleep-conducive environment as important.

The researchers did cite "social lives" as an impediment to proper sleep.

But also volunteer work and employment.

I would say maybe "social lives" wins. But what do I know?
