Bruin Health & Wellness // Sleep Matters

Most college students know sleep matters. But most assume they have to choose between sleep, school, and social life. 


Fortunately that isn't true. 


Not only is healthy sleep the number one predictor of academic success in college, but you can use sleep to your advantage to get the most out of college both in and outside of class. 


Building sleep into your life is not only a way to boost your GPA but can also make you a better athlete and team player; reduce your risk of depression, weight gain, colds, and skin problems; keep you safe on the road; and improve your overall quality of life. 


Watch the video below for more information on how sleep affects your health, happiness, and well-being in college.
