UNDATED (AP) -- College health officials are beginning to look at helping returning students get the one thing they probably miss the most at school -- sleep.
A few schools are giving students what a growing body of research reveals could make a huge difference in their college careers: ear plugs, sleep shades and napping lessons.
College health officials are finally realizing that healthy sleep habits are a potential miracle drug for much of what ails the famously frazzled modern American college student. The ailments include anxiety, depression, physical health problems and -- more than most students realize -- academic troubles. Lack of sleep often equals academic suicide.
Still, many deans and administrators seem hesitant to tell parents who've just dropped $50,000 on tuition that the big push on campus this year will be for everyone to sleep more.
