Approzimately 100 Truman State University students submitted a self-reported, two-week time log for three, non-consecutive periods during the Spring semester of 2004. Based upon these reports, it is estimated the average Truman student spends 21.3 hours per week studying and completing assignments. The average Turman student works 3.7 hours per week in part-time employment and/or scholarship service fulfillment. Students reported an average of 4.0 hours per week of fitness-promoting physical exercise, and 4.1 hours per week in other physical activity. Students average 7.7 hours of sleep per night. Spirtual wellness may be reflected in an average of 1.5 hours per week in organized group spiritual activities, and another 1.0 hour per week in personal spiritual devotions. Social wellness may be illustrated by 3.8 hours per week in organized group sould activities, 8.7 hours per week in unorganized interpersonal social activities, and 4.6 hours per week maintaining long-distance relationships.
