How the Average College Student Spends the Day

By September 15, 2010

Follow me on:

Some of the most-read blog entries on this site have to do with topics that describe how an average student lives, whether it's how they spend their money, what their grades are, or how much debt they graduate with.

Given the high level of interest in looking at the lives of other students, I thought readers of this blog might be interested in seeing a pie-chart breakdown of how college students spend their time. With data put together by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the chart provides a snapshot into the daily lives of a college student.

Based on my own experiences (both as a student and as a college administrator), however, I'm not sure how much I believe what the data report. What do you think? Is this an accurate depiction of the average college student's day?

That chart is way off from my average day…I get an average of maybe 4.5 hours sleep a night…the Facebook may be true some days but fewer than more and I may NEVER see three hours of class, more like 6
