Implication of Gender and Social Status of College Students to their Food Allotment

Population: All college students in the University Belt Sample: Select only five universities, 100 students for each of the five universities

Introduction College years are imperative in shaping one’s future. This is the time when students give their best shot in everything and become conscious of the consequences of their deeds because they want to secure life after college. During those years, students do not get the usual time of sleep that they should have. Most of their time is spent in studying for exams, doing loads of school work, attending late classes, and socializing. In fact, according to the National Institutes of Health (one of the world’s foremost medical research centers), college students are one of the most sleep-deprived populations. Sleep deprivation has been attributed to different conditions such as weight gain. Sleep researchers from the University of Colorado have found out that staying up late and getting just five hours of sleep, increases a person’s metabolism. Particularly, based on the findings published in The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences in March 2013, sleep-deprived participants burn an extra 111 calories a day. Naturally, this calls for more food intake.
As one of the most sleep-deprived populations, college students also have higher food consumption. This means that a relatively large part of their allowance is used up for food. This research aims to know the amount that college students apportion for their food. The researchers are aware that there are several factors to consider in figuring it out. Some of those are gender and social status. Because of the fast-paced change in the environment, gender is not anymore limited to male and female and so the researchers would like to take into account the newly…...

The Effects of Parental Social-Economic Status on the Academic Performance of Secondary School Students

...PARENTS’ SOCIO-ECONOMIC STATUS AND STUDENTS’ ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE. CHAPTER ONE Background to the Study It is an undebatable fact that the home is the fulcrum around which the early years of a child revolves. The central figures are the parents. While child-bearing and child-rearing cannot be divorced one from the other, the type of child-rearing practiced in a family has a tremendous impact on the entire life of the child including his or her academic life. Generally, the social climate or environment in which an individual finds him or her self to a large extent determines his or her behaviour and personality development. Consequently, parental guidance and discipline usually influence the behaviour of the children and at the apex of this parental influence is the mother. According to Olayinka and Omoegun (2001), the word "family" has its origin in the Latin word which could be translated to mean "domestic group". A domestic group is a group of people who habitually share a common dwelling and common food supply. According to Murdoch (1965) family is a social group characterized by common residence, economic, cooperation and reproduction; it includes adults of both sexes, at least two of who maintains a socially approved sexual relationship and one more children, own or adopted by the sexually cohabiting adult. The family provides for the physical maintenance of the child, offers him his first and most continuing social contracts, and gives him affection and other......

Social Status, Binge Drinking, and Social Satisfaction Among College Students

...T. Andrew Barefield 1602 Prof. Charles Henley ENGL2989-020 26 June 2013 “Social Status, Binge Drinking, and Social Satisfaction among College Students”: As Reported by ABC News, TYT University, and Reddit A paper presented by the American Sociological Association (ASA), entitled “Social Status, Binge Drinking, and Social Satisfaction among College Students,” caused quite a stir when it was released in August of last year. It’s findings were that undergraduate students “who report binge drinking also report being happier than their non-binge drinking peers” (Chao). Although many news outlets, chat rooms, forums, YouTube channels, et cetera covered the topic, ABC News, TYT University, and Reddit cover the same material in vastly different ways. ABC News’ slogan, “See The Whole Picture,” shows them as middle of the road or typically non-biased. TYT University is a spin-off of The Young Turks, a progressive political commentary YouTube news show, which is a primarily college-oriented show covering topics from academics and study tips to relationships and drinking. Reddit, often seen stylized as simply reddit (no capital ‘R’), is a social and entertainment website covering every topic imaginable with all information being provided by Reddit users, sometimes referred to as a worldwide bulletin board, then commented and collaborated on by their peers, known as redditors. The ABC News article was posted August 20th, 2012, the day that the paper was presented by the......

Impact of Online Social Network on American College Students’ Reading Practices

...Impact of Online Social Network on American College Students’ Reading Practices By SuHua Huang and Matthew Capps Abstract The purpose of this study was to investigate social networking sites (SNS) and ways college students spend their time on both conventional academic and recreational reading. A total of 1,265 (466 male and 799 female) college students voluntarily participated in the study by completing a self-report survey. Descriptive analysis indicated that the average amount of time students spent (M) on academic reading (AR), recreational reading (RR), and social networking (SN) was 7.72 hours, 4.24 hours, and 16.13 hours per week, respectively. When compared with various classifications, freshmen students spent more time on SN (M=18.05 hours) and less time on both AR (M= 6.22 hours) and RR (M=3.47 hours) than other groups. A zero-order correlation statistical analysis indicated socializing with others by using some social networking sites (SNS) (e.g., Facebook) was positively correlated with college students’ recreational reading (RR), but was not correlated with academic reading (AR). Introduction Research on college students has indicated a number of different outcomes associated with particular types of college students’ experiences (e.g., contact with professors, students’ attitudes, motivations, and activities) and differences among types of institutions and subgroups of students (Kelly & Lee, 2009). However, spending time in reading is one......

Problems Encountered by the Irregular College Students

...Chapter I PROBLEM AND ITS SCOPE Introduction Managing classroom behavior may be more challenging today than ever before. Many teachers face larger class sizes, more students who come from stressful, chaotic homes, and increased diversity in students' abilities and cultures (Grossman, 2004). Yet, many of us are determined to manage classroom behavior ourselves. After all, collaborating with others takes time and energy to build rapport and come to a consensus on behavior-change priorities and strategies. It's tempting just to forge ahead. Although, going at it alone may seem like a good idea in the short-run, in the long run, we are more likely to burn out and lose our effectiveness. Positive student behaviors are most effectively developed and supported through relationship-based whole-school and classroom practices, and clearly communicated behavioral expectations. Some students exhibit challenging behavior and require additional support and interventions to address this behavior and to develop positive behaviors.(Grossman, 2004) It is one of the trickiest issues teachers face today. Disruptive behavior results in lost curriculum time and creates a classroom environment that is not always conducive to learning. One key to nipping behavioral problems in the bud is to promote positive behavior before problems arise. This takes some planning, but the following article will provide you with practical tips to help you lay a foundation for positive classroom......

Studying a specific course in college is not only about paying the fees rather the most important things here are the time and effort spent. Money, time and effort are the most precious things in one’s life and once it is used or spent, it’s hard to gain again or worst you may never have it at all. So the time these are wasted for nothing, for sure the blame for this mistake will be felt truly.
