Fall 2010 Sleep Survey
In the fall of 2010 the Committee on Health and Wellness Initiative’s Sleep Taskforce conducted a survey to learn about USD students’ sleep habits.

The survey was conducted under the leadership of Serena Boyd (Campus Recreation), Annette Taylor (Department of Psychology), Sarabeth Pollock (Athletics), and Maggie Reynolds (SOLES graduate student).
