College Students Aren’t Getting Enough Sleep. These Universities Are Trying To Change That

The University of California-Los Angeles recently hosted a series of events on campus to raise awareness about the importance of sleep, reports the student newspaper the Daily Bruin.

“There’s a weird pride in certain students when they pull all nighters,” Kendra Knudsen, a coordinator with the UCLA Mind Well initiative, told the Daily Bruin earlier this month. “They need to re-prioritize, if they don’t have time for sleep, looking at their schedule and seeing what is really important.”

A temporary nap room was set up in the campus library during “Sleep Week,” and UCLA hosted discussions with professors about the body’s reactions to reduced sleep, as well as free yoga and mindful awareness sessions focused on relaxation tips to help students relax and fall asleep faster, according to the Bruin. This past week, Mind Well hosted free drop-in meditation sessions, in addition to “Sleep Well Assessments,” a 15-minute study that examines whether decreasing computer light at night may help improve sleep.

But UCLA is hardly the only school trying to encourage students to prioritize sleep.

The University of Alaska-Anchorage hosted its own event Saturday to help students learn tips about how to make small changes to improve their sleep habits.
