Sleep is underrated, but it should not be! Most people need an average of 6-8 hours of sleep per night. There is a reason why we need to let our bodies rest. When we sleep, our bodies literally heals itself, forms new memories and turns short term memories into long-term memories (great for studying!), and recharges itself for the next day. Sleep helps us function better the next day, and establishing a good sleep rhythm not only helps with cognitive functioning, but also gets us physically and emotionally ready for the day. Wouldn’t you rather sleep one more hour versus grabbing another cup of coffee?
The ambitious program MET 1
Since the fall of 2013, the Texas A&M University-Kingsville has developed a program called “enhanced mentoring and tutoring: MET”. The objectives of this program are highly specific, such as improving student retention, and increasing both the number of graduate students and the enrollment of minority groups.
