Unfortunately, this has become the norm for many college students but sacrificing sleep in order to excel academically has a cost to physical and mental health.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that about one third of U.S. adults sleep less than the recommended 7 hours per night. . Poor sleep quality can impact physical health by lowering the immune system response which can result in increased susceptibility to illness.
