Filling next year's schedule with classes that start at 2pm?

According to a recent study, students who have later classes sleep longer than their counterparts that don't, but also drink more and get worse grades.

The study was conducted by two St. Lawrence psychologists who surveyed 253 students about a variety of factors associated with mood, sleep and academic performance.

“Later class start times seemed to change the choices students make: They sleep longer, and they drink more," said Pamela Thacher, co-lead author on the study to Health.com.

In brighter news, the study also found that students on average get the reccommended 8 hours of sleep.
