Enclosed is a copy of “Sleep Deprivation among ASU Students.” This report is a summary of my findings from the work that I completed in which I call upon documented scientific studies, articles, books, and my own findings through survey in order to determine the problem of sleep deprivation, more specifically, sleep deprivation among students at Arizona State University. This isn’t a clearly visible problem or popular topic of conversation on college campuses so you may be wondering how I came to discover this as a problem worthy of attention.
It happens that I have often times found myself feeling tired and drowsy throughout the day. This has even occurred after a full eight hours of sleep. I don’t regularly get a full nights rest and from observations of friends and roommates I deduce they rarely do as well. Upon initial research I found that a conservative estimate of 60% of college students are regularly sleep deprived. There is a multitude of reasons for this occurrence as well as a great number of effects.
Results of my research, discussed more fully in this report, point to general lifestyle choices by individuals as the major determinant in their level of sleep deprivation.
I am pleased to present this report and look forward to discussing it at your request.
