Night sleep duration of Japanese children aged 10-18 y has become shorter by one hour during the last 30 years in Japan [1]. The so called "24-hour society", which is currently in progress in Japan, seems to change environmental conditions surrounding children. For example, mobile phones are used by more than 90 % of university students and more than 30% of junior high school students living in the urban area of Kochi city (33°N) [2]. Students can communicate with their colleagues even in the middle of the night with mobile phones. Frequent or long-time (more than 30 min) usage of the mobile phone makes university and junior high school students more evening-typed [2].. "Convenience stores" are open for 24 hours and provide several kinds of food and other goods for general civilian life. Convenience stores are now common all over Japan even in suburban areas. Illumination inside the convenience stores is very bright (2000 lux or more at the level of the eyes). Bright lighting in retail stores ...
The Union of Secondary Students (USS) was founded in January 2001 by Shane ODonnell, Lorcan Fox, Graham Barry, Carly-Anne Gannon and Lyndsey O Connell. With the help of the Union of Students in Ireland, the founders set up a meeting, which took place in University College Dublin on 28 March 2001. USS, the Union of Secondary Students disbanded in August 2008. The Union campaigns for the rights of Students and has a close working relationship with The Department of Education and Science, The National Childrens Office, the NYCI, NCCA, NPCPP, CPA, and USI. They are also a member of the Organizing Bureau of European School Student Unions (OBESSU). In April 2004 they voted to accept membership from students in Northern Ireland and, as of 21 May 2005, the Union of Secondary Students has a registered membership of 47,000 students in the Republic of Ireland, representing approximately 14% of the second level students in the country. The USS is criticized by many for its close ties with the Government, ...
The smoking habits of 9,276 high-school students (15-18 years old) in six cities of Northern Greece were studied using a questionnaire in order to determine the prevalence and possible risk factors for initiation of smoking. We observed that 29.6% of high-school students (32.6% of boys and 26.7% of girls) were current smokers. A percentage of 43.3% had started smoking before the age of 14. Reactive behaviour towards parents and teachers advice (40.2%) and the existence of smoking friends (40.1%) were the main reasons of initiation. A well-planned integrated anti-smoking campaign is urgently required, especially among students and teachers.
Despite the increase in methodological sophistication and complexity of models being tested for international student adjustment to universities in the United States (U.S.), researchers often do not test or control for salient demographic differences between students, including their educational status (i.e., graduate or undergraduate) and country in which they graduated high school. The current study was designed to examine whether demographic variables are associated with a range of social outcomes. Participants (N = 245) from 23 U.S. colleges and universities completed a survey in Fall 2017. Undergraduate students reported having a higher number of close friends at their institution than did graduate students; however, they also reported a lower sense of belonging than did graduate students. Students who graduated from high school in the United States reported less social support from international students at university. Implications for students and for future research are

Stress during tertiary educational period has significant negative effect on the performance of a student. Mental distress is increasing among students and is one of the important public health concerns. This study was carried out to investigate the socio demographic characteristics of students, level of their stress feeling, and status of mental health and to find out the co-relation of different factors associated with the level of stress feelings. A cross sectional study was conducted among the students of the Department of Pharmacy of UAP. A total of 504 students (181 male students and 323 female students) participated in this study. Feeling of severe stress was almost equal to both sexes. But, moderate level of stress was more associated with female students (N = 253, F = 78.33%) and overall female students were more stressful than male. Thought towards future career ranked one among many reasons of stress in students (59.67% for male students and 37.46% for female students). In terms of academic
This survey interviewed students at colleges that participated in the first two rounds of the HARVARD SCHOOL OF PUBLIC HEALTH COLLEGE ALCOHOL STUDY, which were conducted in 1993 and 1997 (ICPSR 6577 and 3163). As in the previous surveys, the 1999 survey focused on alcohol use and alcohol problems among undergraduate college students.

Student dormitory as a social and cultural space plays an important role in students' satisfaction from university and higher education and their educational performance, which is why understanding the living conditions of dormitories and their management is necessary to improve it. The present article, while conceptualizing the quality of dormitory life, uses survey method and questionnaire technique to study the quality of dormitory life among 2500 students in 10 university districts and 22 universities in the country. The findings showed that in the welfare dimension, students were dissatisfied with the facilities of the room, the building and the dormitory, the cultural facilities and the physical welfare facilities. In the cultural dimension, on the one hand, students were dissatisfied with the cultural activities and programs in the dormitory, and on the other hand, they would not enjoy their leisure time. In the social dimension, the identity of social pathologies among girls was mainly

Public officials, civic organizations, and other groups and individuals are cooperating with the colleges and universities in developing "an atmosphere of cordial good will" toward Japanese American students who are being relocated through services of the National Japanese American Student Relocation Council. This Council was organized some 3 months ago at the request of the War Relocation Authority and with approval of the War Department.. The emergency evacuation from the Western Defense Area by the Wartime Civil Control Administration (WCCA) of all residents of Japanese extraction brought a total of approximately 100,000 individuals into assembly centers and then to more permanent relocation centers. This evacuation brought with it the sudden interruption of college and university studies or plans for between two and three thousand American-born sons and daughters of Japanese parents. The number includes not only those who were actually enrolled as undergraduates in West Coast colleges, but ...

Concerned faculty members regularly contact Disability Services (DS) with questions about a student that they feel may have a disability. While DS obviously desires that all students with disabilities receive the necessary accommodations, it is the responsibility of the student to initiate contact with DS.. All students admitted to Ball State are sent a disability "self-disclosure" form. If this form is returned, the student will be made aware of services that Ball State offers pertaining to the disability that the student lists on the self-disclosure form. Students may also disclose a disability to DS at any time during their time at Ball State. Unlike high school, where teachers actively refer students to special education services, we must remember that college students are adults, and privacy is a major consideration. As a result, if you have a student that you feel qualifies for services from DS, your referral to the DS office needs to be informational and supportive as opposed to directive ...

Accommodation is one of the biggest costs associated with studying away from home, and is therefore an area students and their parents will look at carefully when deciding between institutions and locations. This may be particularly true when two institutions are comparable on other measures, but one stands out for the quality, comfort, or innovativeness of housing available to students.. This is especially the case for international students, who are not only living far from home but also surrounded by new cultures and languages. Safe, comfortable, and affordable housing is a must - both for the peace of mind of students and their families but also for academic success.. Whether a student is domestic or international, housing is a significant element of their study experience. Indeed, as many international educators know well, problems with accommodations can overshadow an otherwise exceptional programme, classroom, or campus. Students come to school to study, but they also carry hopes of ...

Risk Factors for Depression in College Students. Abstract: Depression is an increasingly prevalent mental health issue, and most college students are at the age of first onset. This study utilized logistic regression to build a model for use in identification of depression in college students. In particular, it was determined that both sleep and exercise interact, with lower levels of each indicating greater risk for depression in this population. These findings are useful in identifying students at-risk for depression so that preventative services might be offered to such students.. Background and Significance. Depression is a mental illness that can be debilitating to those who experience it. In addition to psychological handicaps, depression can also affect a persons cognitive ability and physical health. Between 5 and 8% of Americans suffer from depression each year; only half of those people are treated despite known treatments being substantially effective (Duckworth, 2013). Therefore, it ...

The aim of this study was to identify the specific cognitive, motivational and behavioural predictors of two measures of university students academic achievement (grade point average and student efficacy status), after controlling for dispositional variables and student adjustment at the beginning of college. A representative sample of 250 undergraduate students was followed over a period of 3 years. Hierarchical regression analysis and logistic regression analysis were conducted to check the contribution of the included variables. The hypothesized significant role of cognitive, behavioural and motivational factors in students academic achievement has been confirmed, with the automatic thoughts related to the fear of disappointing parents and time and study environment management skills as the most pronounced predictors for both criteria. Outcome expectation is a significant predictor of the students efficacy status only, while action control beliefs and goal orientations (performance and ...

In CERPs annual survey of undergraduate students in computing fields, students were asked to identify the resources they are using to fund their education. They could select multiple resources. This graphic shows the distribution of responses for first-generation versus continuing-generation college students. The percentages are the number of students who selected a particular funding source out of the number of students within each group (total first-generation students = 1,076; continuing-generation students = 7,157). While first-generation students most frequent source of education funding comes from federal loans, continuing-generation students rely most frequently on financial support from their parents. The data also show that first-generation and continuing-generation students take out private loans, make use of their personal savings, receive scholarships and/or grants, work part- or full-time, and are supported by their spouse or partner at similar rates.. ...
Understanding the trends in the prevalence of cigarette smoking among youths enables policy makers to target prevention resources more effectively. Every 2 years, CDC analyzes data from the national Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) to evaluate trends in cigarette use among high school students in the United States. This report updates a previous report (1) and describes results of CDCs 2010 analysis of YRBS data from 1991--2009 for three measures: ever smoked cigarettes, current cigarette use, and current frequent cigarette use. For ever smoked cigarettes, the prevalence did not change from 1991 (70.1%) to 1999 (70.4%), declined to 58.4% in 2003, and then declined more gradually, to 46.3% in 2009. For current cigarette use, the prevalence increased from 27.5% in 1991 to 36.4% in 1997, declined to 21.9% in 2003, and then declined more gradually, to 19.5% in 2009. For current frequent cigarette use, the prevalence increased from 12.7% in 1991 to 16.8% in 1999, declined to 9.7% in 2003, and then ...

Social norms campaigns typically use statistics or facts to counter students misperceptions about how much their fellow students drink -- posters or ads stressing that the majority of students are moderate drinkers or non-drinkers, for example. While social norms campaigns have become popular on college campuses over the past decade, this approach is problematic, said Shelly Campo, Ph.D. (left), assistant professor of community and behavioral health in the UI College of Public Health, and communication studies in the UI College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. These campaigns are based on the assumption that students dont really know what the correct norm is, that they are likely to underestimate how many people are really drinking responsibly, and that a correct message will change their behavior, Campo said. These campaigns also assume that students want to be like the typical college student, which is difficult to define, particularly at a college or university with a large or diverse ...

Downloadable ! Author(s): Scott E. Carrell & Marianne E. Page & James E. West. 2009 Abstract: Why arent there more women in science? Female college students are currently 37 percent less likely than males to obtain a bachelors degree in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), and comprise only 25 percent of the STEM workforce. This paper begins to shed light on this issue by exploiting a unique dataset of college students who have been randomly assigned to professors over a wide variety of mandatory standardized courses. We focus on the role of professor gender. Our results suggest that while professor gender has little impact on male students, it has a powerful effect on female students performance in math and science classes, their likelihood of taking future math and science courses, and their likelihood of graduating with a STEM degree. The estimates are largest for female students with very strong math skills, who are arguably the students who are most suited to careers in science.

The purpose of this case study was to explore the online learning environment through the experiences of the individual learner and to gain more insight into the elements of Business online courses, as framed by the Keller ARCS Model of Motivation. This study explored the following three Research Questions: 1. How do undergraduate first-year Business students perceive online course elements as being motivational? 2. How do the online courses that Business students perceive as being motivational use the Keller ARCS Motivational Model? 3 How do exemplary online Business faculty use the Keller ARCS Motivational Model in online instruction? The population was students enrolled in first-year for-credit online classes taken during the Fall 2010 semester in a Midwestern community college. A sample of required Business online sections was purposively selected in order to investigate Business student motivation.

January 4, 2012. By Rebecca Wright, The Windsor Star. About two-thirds of post-secondary students are ineligible for tuition rebates introduced this month by the provincial Liberals, according to the Canadian Federation of Students.. "There are a lot of exclusions to the grant that really dont make sense," CFS chairwoman for Ontario Sandy Hudson said Tuesday.. She said the province is refusing to make changes to the policy even though most students are ineligible.. The Ontario Tuition Grant is a new rebate effective Jan. 5 that offsets tuition costs for dependent full-time undergraduate students within four years of graduating high school. The annual rebate is $730 for each college student and $1,600 for each university student from families with incomes under $160,000 a year.. Although the Liberal government said more than 300,000 will benefit from the rebate program, the CFS said there are too many students that it does not apply to. Hudson said less than 50 per cent of all students in the ...
Student Progress compiles and maintains a list of modules for which immunisation is required..

In the 1912-1913 academic year, naval architecture was the top major for Chinese students at MIT, with 14 out of 37 total enrolled in this course. By 1930, a total of 30 Chinese students had undertaken Course XIII at MIT, making it the fifth most popular course for the early Chinese students at MIT. Writing for the Chinese Students Monthly in 1917, VF Lam (Class of 1916, Naval Architecture) similarly praised MIT for establishing the course for Chinese engineers, but lamented that China had very few of her own shipyards, with most of the shipyards and docks in the country under foreign control. He thus saw the task lying ahead of Chinese engineers to be great indeed -- not only a technical problem, but also a political one.. The early Course XIII students also had an impact beyond their major. As noted above, several took leadership roles in the founding of the MIT Chinese Students Club in 1910 while also participating in the Cosmopolitan Club. In the inaugural Chinese Night entertainment put ...

What do students do in the lab?. Many graduate and undergraduate students work with us in the Baby Lab each semester. This is a great way to gain experience in psychological research, which is very important for students who plan to apply to graduate school in psychology. Some students actually interact with parents and their children in the lab, playing games, asking questions, and teaching children new words. Others run our camera and sound equipment during a study session. Some students review videotapes, counting behaviors, recording words, or trying to see how a mother and child interact. Students enter data in spreadsheets, make telephone calls, discuss research articles, and eat pizza at the end of the semester. How can I get involved?. Students must have a GPA of 3.25 and agree to work in the lab for at least two semesters. Most students stay until they graduate.

This year the Mid-Autumn Festival, also known as the Moon Festival, fell on October 4th. This festival is when Chinese people worldwide celebrate the end of the harvest season and get together with families and friends. As an international student, I sometimes feel sad to be far away from home during festivals like this, but luckily, the Chinese Student Scholar Association (CSSA) at RIT hosted a Mid-Autumn Festival party during the weekend before the festival, which helped maintain our home culture and also introduced it to a bigger community.. During the party, we played themed games and had some really good traditional mooncake and Chinese food. I was glad to see that the RITCSSA brought us closer while helping us relieve the feeling of homesick and enjoy student life as international students more here.. CSSA is not the only student club that draws the campus community closer - there are actually approximately 300 active clubs on RIT campus! During the New Student Orientation, usually in late ...

The purpose of this study was to evaluate school-based weight screening from the perspective of the students perceived comfort, utility, and impact of screening on reported behavioral intentions. With the exception of overweight students, particularly females, the majority of middle-school aged students we surveyed felt comfortable with weight screening and most felt that privacy was sufficient. The high rate (61.3%) of overweight female students reporting dissatisfaction with the level of privacy afforded students suggests the need for protocols that further increase privacy. Although the weight screening was not conducted in a private room as is preferable [7, 19], the creation of a private environment by measuring weight in a corner of the large school gymnasium seems to have provided adequate privacy for most students. Students reported that learning their height and weight values was useful. Students who were at-risk for overweight and overweight were more likely to report the intention to ...

Every year, a small number of undergraduate students at the University of Nottingham Medical School fail to make satisfactory progress on the course. Some have problems at all stages, others have sporadic difficulties, and a proportion fail to graduate at all, either leaving voluntarily or having their course terminated. In an earlier study we found that 10-15% of the annual intake were affected to some degree [1]. There is often a combination of causative factors, including difficulty in coping with the academic workload, health problems, and social issues such as not settling at university or having adverse personal or family circumstances. Some students may have applied for medicine as a result of family pressures rather than personal choice and may therefore lack motivation, or have unrealistic expectations.. Failure to thrive on the course, or struggling in the case of the worst-affected, is a cause for concern. Firstly it is a concern for the student, who may suffer considerable personal ...

Postsecondary education plays a critical role in building a strong workforce in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. The U.S. postsecondary education system, however, frequently loses many potential STEM graduates through attrition. An increasing portion of STEM leavers are top performers who might have made valuable additions to the STEM workforce had they stayed in STEM fields. Using data from the 2004/09 Beginning Postsecondary Students Longitudinal Study (BPS:04/09), this study tracks a cohort of beginning bachelors degree students over 6 years, providing a close look at STEM attrition among a group of high-performing college students. Capitalizing on the transcript data collected through BPS:04/09, this study also examines STEM coursetaking, detailing how participation and performance in undergraduate STEM coursework are associated with students departure from STEM fields. The study finds that about a quarter of high-performing beginning bachelors degree ...

The purpose of this study was to evaluate a model for considering general and specific elements of student experience in a gateway course in undergraduate Financial Accounting in a large university on the East Coast, USA. Specifically, the study evaluated a bifactor analytic strategy including a general factor of student classroom experience, conceptualized as student engagement as rooted in flow theory, as well as factors representing specific dimensions of experience. The study further evaluated the association between these general and specific factors and both student classroom practices and educational outcomes. The sample of students (N = 407) in two cohorts of the undergraduate financial accounting course participated in the Experience Sampling Method (ESM) measuring students classroom practices, perceptions, engagement, and perceived learning throughout the one-semester course. Course grade information was also collected. Results showed that a two-level bifactor model fit the data better than

Background Adolescents and young adults have higher injury rates than their adult counterparts in similar jobs. This study used the working college student population to assess health and safety hazards in the workplace, characterize related occupational diseases and injuries, and describe worker health/safety activities provided by employers. Methods College students (≥17 years old) were assessed via online surveys about work history, workplace exposure to hazards, occupational diseases/injuries, and workplace health/safety activities. Results Approximately half (51%) of participants (n = 1,147) were currently employed at the time of the survey or had been employed while enrolled in college. Restaurants (other than fast food) were the most frequently reported work setting. The most reported workplace hazards included noise exposure and contact with hot liquids/surfaces. Twenty percent of working students experienced injury at work; some injuries were severe enough to limit students normal ...

Hookah use in young adults. A major concern of hookah use is that it is often perceived as a safer alternative to traditional cigarettes. Theory of planned behavior emphasizes the importance beliefs, attitudes, and social norms are to behavior.23 In the context of smoking, subjective attitudes and beliefs about smoking lead to engaging in smoking behavior. Common misconceptions observed in college aged individuals include perceptions of hookah being less harmful, less addictive, and containing lower levels of nicotine.24,25 Furthermore, college students report hookah use as more socially acceptable compared to cigarette smoking.25 Research has shown an association between low perceived harm, low addictiveness, and high social acceptability to hookah use.26 Therefore, these misconceptions about the safety of hookah lead to the initiation of hookah use among college students. In addition, college students are at a unique developmental period which makes them more susceptible to engaging in risky ...
In this article an exposition is provided on information collected in a survey conducted at the UFS to help provide a better understanding of risk factors for HIV infection among UFS students in comparison with the behaviour patterns of students at other universities. Stereotypes identified as known risk factors making students at other universities more vulnerable to HIV and high-risk sexual behaviour, were also found among UFS students. Results indicated the existence of the following statistical significant correlations: African cultural students, gender and their viewpoint that there is a stronger relationship between homosexuality and HIV/AIDS; their opinion that HIV/AIDS is more strongly associated with African students. Data obtained from this survey questionnaire show that even if students have a great deal of knowledge to their disposal, and even if they recognised that they were personally at risk, some students sexual practices and risk-taking behaviour remained unchanged. Despite ...

The intention was to estimate the effects of service-learning compared to more traditional ways of teaching similar subject areas. The outcomes measured ranged from civic knowledge, behaviors, and dispositions to school engagement factors, such as attachment to school and enjoyment of coursework, that generally predict academic success. Students came from sites in the southeast, north central, and western parts of the United States. More than half of the students in the sample were Latino/Hispanic.". Download here (PDF).. ...
There are many reports that many applicants fail to apply for financial aid when they are qualified for it; one estimate was that 2 million students who would have qualified for aid did not apply for it. There is a report suggesting that in recent years, wait-lists are more fluid than in previous years, and have become more of a safety net for colleges rather than students. Please note financial aid application deadlines, and submit your application early to maintain the best chances of receiving all the financial aid that you qualify for.
