Farking might be included in "leisure and sports" or "other", depending on how freaky it is.

I don't understand how they got only an hour for "eating and drinking", but an hour and a half for "traveling". Other than that... actually not too far off.

I don't know many college students at all that get 8 hours of sleep. Hell, most of them barely manage 4.

Really depends on the day of the week. At my school, the weekend began Wednesday night...

4 hours of sleep at night...but you have to include the daytime naps in between classes

I must have been doing something wrong in college because that graph doesn't reflect how I spent time at all.

I assuming eating and drinking just means meals, not actual drinking. That and the traveling is walking to and from classes. I could easily see 90 minutes if you have 3 classes a day (~15 minutes to and from)).

If someone can't get 8 h/day of sleep in college, they're doing it wrong. I only had to sacrifice sleep on one or two occasions, last term.
I expect my pie chart would reflect at least an hour's worth of farking each day... or, wait, hang on, by "farking," does subby mean browsing fark, or fornicating? Although I'm capable of both.

0.8 "grooming"? I know it's college and hippie hair is to be expected, but if you spend 48 minutes every day on your hair, something's wrong.

/Unless that includes showering, which if those are 48 minutes, could coincide with subby's headline

I somehow managed to get 8 hours of sleep a night in college. Then again, didn't have much of a social life so maybe I was doing it wrong.

My time in college didn't include much farking. It did include a lot of Farking, though.

I always took a morning nap after my morning classes but before my afternoon classes and work. Everybody naps.

Does it take most people longer to eat breakfast, or to get to work? The same applies to college students. Most don't live on, or all that near, campus.

This is why you schedule your classes one after the other. So there is no dead time in between.
 
2010-09-11 08:53:58 PM
Pretty accurate for me. Perhaps less time traveling (I live on campus) and more time for work.
 
2010-09-11 08:54:04 PM
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, college kids will nearly as much time on leisure and sports as on traditional "educational activities," -- about 3½ hours each on an average day.

Nasty dirty sentence. No wonder....
 
2010-09-11 08:59:49 PM
Well, if they put in "farking", the rest of the chart would be so tiny by comparison you wouldn't be able to see it. They had to take it out so it wouldn't screw up the scale.
 
2010-09-11 09:01:32 PM
I would like to see how much that varies between BA liberal arts pansies and real BS Students.
 
2010-09-11 09:03:05 PM
More drinking. Less sleeping.

Wow, I wish I had that much free time. Here at Georgia Tech I am spending 8 hours a day minimum on educational activities.

Multiple campuses. Between waiting for the bus and actually riding the bus, a round trip can be more than an hour, and easily 45 minutes. Combine that with lunch being a bag of chips from the vending machine or similar (no family dinners here), and nope, I can see those two numbers perfectly.

//Engineers are on North, but maths/sciences/popular engineering classes are on Central, a 15 minute bus ride + a 10 minute wait (if you're lucky and the buses aren't full up)

Gen Y:

I did have a friend in freshman year whose guild met at midnight to 8 AM every night. I swear to god the kid never slept.

/Of course, he did save me from being arrested when I fell asleep studying and the cop thought I was drunk (mildly justified. There had been a big drunken snowball fight outside, and I was coming off 2 straight all-nighters, so I looked and acted pretty darn drunk.)

The way I always handled it was 4 each weeknight and then like 16 on Saturday.

Gen Y, you forgot Facebook. The guys and dolls usually are into both. Where the heck is Farmville or is that counted in Facebook?

As for the real graphic, you can use numbers to prove anything depending on the who, what, where, when, why, and how. One of the university courses that I teach involves making, analyzing, and writing up surveys.

I am a guide while the students create and do their own survey from start to finish. I enjoy teaching about leading questions/answers, data-fudging to meet expectations and non-representative samples. It is a great way to teach English via content. Also the old scheming business suit in me enjoys it.

It's been a few years but I still remember the smell of the guy's floor at the dorm. I have flashbacks of the stench.

Saturday night and you're blogging and not at a frat party? I'm calling shenanigans here!

Between the live in gf, working college radio, catching the frat parties, holding down a part time job and -oh yeah-- studying, it's a wonder i got any sleep at all.

WTF? 3.6 hours on educational activities? Try doubling that. And 2.9 hours working? That's great for everyone who managed to get by on 20 hours a week. I didn't.

As for working, weekdays are for school. Weekends are for working 10-14 hour days.
