Students, Makensy Jabbour, Samantha Goodstein, and Jimmy Gramajo, Public and Community Health majors from the Department of Health Promotion Physical Education (HPPE), presented a paper at the Sixteenth International Conference on Environmental, Cultural, Economic & Social Sustainability at Santiago, Chile in January 30th, 2020.

The paper was a part of a service-learning project that was conducted for a course taught by Dr. Srijana Bajracharya. 


College environment has a significant impact on students’ sleep health. Lack of sleep and irregular sleeping patterns can lead to obesity, depression, and cardiovascular disease, which can be detrimental to one’s physical and mental well-being. The purpose of this study was to assess the environmental factors related to sleep health of a Northeastern private college. An observational study design was conducted using a College Sleep Environmental Scan instrument. Since this is a mid-sized private school in a rural setting and assumed to be a “healthy” town, the environment was expected to be positive. Apparently, there is a room for improvement in many areas. Based on the findings, a set of recommendations was provided to the college to consider environmental modification and promote students’ sleep health.
