Insomnia on Campus will start in
Despite the flexibility to snooze at will, many students suffer from insomnia and other sleep disorders. If you're having problems sleeping in college, you're definitely not without treatment options. Here, the 411 on fighting the tired bug
Description: Sleep deprivation is all too common on your average campus, but does being sleep deprived really hurt you? Surprisingly, the answer is yes. Suffering from insomnia in college can lead to reduced concentration and impair your studying efforts.

There's a reason that sleep deprivation is used as a form of torture-it's killer on your body. In fact, if you miss enough sleep, it can cause you to drive as erratically as someone who has a blood alcohol level of .08 or higher. In other words, missing too much sleep can impair you in much the same way that being intoxicated can. Multiple studies have documented the negative effects that lack of sleep has on brain function. Just one night of missed sleep can significantly dull the centers of your brain responsible for memory, concentration, and language… -meaning that your all night study session might have done more harm than good. And if you continually skimp on sleep, you may experience memory loss, a decreased desire for sex, and reduced tolerance for alcohol. In the end, you'll definitely gain more by catching some zzzs than you will by cramming all night. It's important to be mindful of the impact on all-nighter can have on your body and mind.
