Sleep is something we all crave, especially in college. However, with our crazy schedules, many times we do not get the amount of sleep we need. We also get stressed with school and work loads and seem to be crunched when it comes with time. While all of these factors weigh down on us, there are some resources that can help. Be sure to look at Counseling Services as well as services offered through Mercy Regional Health Center for sleep and stress management. For time management, check out services at the Office of Student Life, the Office of Student Activities and Services, and the Academic Assistance Center.
