Jobs wiping out college kids
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?
