Do MIT Students Ever Sleep?
Analysis of the recent MIT Transportation Survey found a familiar phenomenon: many
members of the MIT community are awake late at night, and still checking e-mail. In fact, more than 35% of student respondents answered the survey between midnight and 6 am.
The good news? Most of the freshmen who answered a sleep question on a recent survey indicated they get a moderate amount of sleep:
• 69% reported getting between 6-7 hours of sleep per night on average
• 17% reported getting 8 or more hours of sleep
• 14% reported getting 5 or fewer hours of sleep.
