Notre Dame is one of the most sleep deprived schools in the country
And nobody is surprised!
Just so Mendoza doesn’t feel lonely in its second-place spot, we are now the 2nd most sleep-deprived university.
Jawbone recently compiled data on how much sleep students from different universities get; Notre Dame was only beat out by Columbia, joining the likes of Case Western and UPenn at the top of the list.
According to the data, the average ND student gets 6 hours, 41 minutes of sleep per weeknight. Though we don’t have the latest bedtime (Columbia beats us by fifteen minutes, at 1:26 PM), we have among the lowest weeknight sleep times.
Other universities, such as University of New Hampshire, sleep as much as forty minutes more per night.
The report also found that there was a correlation between weekday bedtime, and US News and World Report rankings: the better the school, the later the bedtime. Notre Dame students’ lack of sleep and high rankings put them in the ring with Princeton, MIT, Stanford, as well as Columbia and Penn.
Notre Dame students simply don’t get enough rest, but we already knew that.
