The Bureau of Labor Statistics graph shows the average time college students spend on certain activities. According to a Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) study, part of the American Time Use Survey, students do sleep for more than 8 hours per night during weekdays. This way, they were able to determine that the average student in the United States sleeps for 8.4 hours each day. Unlike most people, Courtney Cambria, FCLC ’15, said, “I sleep for eight to nine hours each night but my roommates go to sleep at 3 a.m.
Another way of putting up with lack of sleep is napping, which students do not always include in their sleeping hours.
Most people agree that the BLS study does not reflect their sleeping habits, nor their friends’.


With midterms drawing near, let’s hope everyone gets the most sleep they can before lowering the national average again. The info is based on a time use survey that extensively tracked the activity of many Americans and, according to Business Insider, found that Americans over the age of 15 gets an average of eight hours and 43 minutes of sleep per night. Certainly a 15 year old and a 49 year old will not dedicate the same amount of time to sleep. But then, maybe there are just a lot of Americans who somehow manage a job, family, personal life and hobbies all without cutting into their sleep. The bureau of labor statistics indicates that women get more sleep than men, as well as everyone of age and sex getting at least 8 hours of sleep. This appears to be Fordham’s ideal sleeping schedule: eight hours and a half of quiet and nourishing sleep.


I know personally that as a woman, especially a mother, even though we are in this day and age women still have the majority of the tasks with kids, house, work, and life – thus giving women less sleep than men.
