When I was in high school it was very rare that you would catch me sleeping other than when I'm actually going to sleep for the night. Fast forward a couple of years and it seems as if my sleeping patterns have managed to do a complete 180 degree spin. My past two years in college I've taken more naps than possibly ever before in my entire life. Most people might ask why such the huge increase in sleeping and the answer is actually quite simple. Quite frankly, as a college student you just generally have more time on your hands. Not to mention the fact that your schedule might be hectic, your diet isn't going to be the best, and you'll have a lot of late night socializing with all the excitement of being at a new place.
Napping is definitely what I did a lot of my first year in college. I slept a lot but not because I necessarily had free time but because I needed to sleep whenever I could possibly squeeze in the time. My first two semesters were pretty hectic and I found myself being constantly tired. I would try and sleep when I could during the day for a few hours which would result in me being wide awake in the evening and being up all night. Adjusting was tough but I did it. I'd say that time management is one of the biggest success tips for college. So make sure you use your time very wisely.
