There have been many studies that link “unhealthy sleep habits” with decreased cognitive functioning. The current study examined the relationship between grade-point average (GPA) and sleep, in terms of quality and quantity. Surveys were administered to college students around the campus of the University of Minnesota in order to assess the levels of sleep deprivation and sleep quality of collegiate sleeping behaviors. Six variables were analyzed from the participants' surveys: sleep quality as…
