Pennsylvania State University
United States of America

According to a survey conducted by the National Sleep Foundation in 2008, 20% of college students suffer from sleep disorders due to sleep deprivation. Sleep deprivation is an issue that must be addressed on this campus because:
1. Less sleep = a decline in class attendance,

2. Ability to concentrate diminishes, and

3. GPA’s substantially decrease.

A Solution to this problem includes, but is not limited to:

1. Pushing the start time of large lecture classes to 9 am instead of 8 am, and

2. Leaving only smaller, major-specific courses and laboratory courses at their original start time of 8 am.

Proposition is subject to amendment as seen fit by the Pennsylvania State University.

We, the undersigned, call on the Pennsylvania State University to reconsider the start time of selected scheduled courses from 8am to 9am.
