The second article I researched didn’t retrieve as many results as the other. This may be because it was a peer-reviewed article. I decided to choose the same topic as the first, just to keep it simple, but from a different search engine. I used the same keyword. The title of this article is “Relationship of work hours with selected health behaviors and academic progress among a college student cohort”. This article is not an ordinary piece of information. This article has a survey format throughout, getting additional individuals thoughts and responses for the research. The authors of this article are Kim Miller, Fred Danner and Ruth Staten. This article was written between May and June in the Journal of American College Health. This was a peer-reviewed article from the Thomson Gale PowerSearch database. This article basically analyzes how most college students and at time just a general student by my book has a lack of responsibility if you will. Students will find themselves drawn away from what is important from foolish commodities, such as alcohol and or employment.

Health risks related to working while in college have not been widely studied. Objective: The authors' purpose in this study was to determine associations between hours worked, binge drinking, sleep habits, and academic performance among a college student cohort. Participants and Methods: The authors randomly selected a sample of 1,700 undergraduates from a southeastern US university and mailed to them a survey requesting a variety of serf-reported health behaviors and hours worked. A total of 903 completed questionnaires were received, indicating a response rate of 57.3%. Results: Binge drinking, less sleep, and lower academic performance were significantly associated with working 20 or more hours per week. Those variables were not associated with working fewer than 20 hours per week. Conclusions: Although administrators and others in higher education are aware of the impact of economics on a school's ability to operate, they may not be aware of the impact on students' health.
