CollegeCareerCoach Guides Sleepy College Students Toward Improved Studies, GPA
December 19, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Education NewsManalapan, New Jersey – December 19, 2007 – A study to be included in the January 2008 issue of Behavioral Sleep Medicine finds that college students who have never pulled an all-night study session have average GPAs of 3.1 compared to 2.9 for those who have. The study of 120 students was conducted at St. Lawrence University in northern New York.
“Previous studies have shown a direct link between lack of sleep and lower grades for college students,” says Rhoda Geller, CollegeCareerCoach, Manalapan, New Jersey. “The problem is that sometimes students are so overwhelmed with classes, jobs and social life, that they are not sure how to manage their time to avoid the all-night studying. If time management was not a skill learned in high school, it is essential for college students to acquire the skill for their college years.”
Through the company CollegeCareerCoach, Rhoda Geller and Shelley Ladin work with college students to teach them time management, study habits and test-taking skills. Students receive ongoing coaching to become more organized and less overwhelmed resulting in better sleep routines.
