Sleep duration and quality have a direct effect on college students' academic performance, physical health, and mental health. On average, college students get 6 to 6.5 hours of sleep per night. College years are also notorious for all-nighters and caffeinating at late hours due to an overload of activities.

In this presentation, the following objectives will be met:

  • Students will be able to explain the importance of sleep on health and overall well-being.
  • Students will recognize the relationship between alcohol, substances, and sleep.
  • Students will recall the different types of sleep disorders.
  • Students will be able to apply their knowledge to establishing a better sleep routine.
