Students over the years have gone about their normal lives and found different ways to deal with all of the pressures put on them while in college. A common practice is procrastination which in return a lot of times plays right into the hands of sleep deprivation. Cramming information last minute to prepare themselves for midterms or finals is seen as normal around campuses as a way for students to perform better on the tests. Lauren Coursey, lecturer in the department of psychology would not recommend that but rather study throughout the semester and getting a good nights sleep the night before a big test.
