College students still love their caffeine

by Natalie Matthews

Caffeine consumption among college students has evolved into a cultural staple and a coping mechanism in the face of academic pressures. 

Students are drinking more caffeine than ever due to their busy schedules and heavy workloads.

Medical professionals are concerned about the overconsumption of caffeine among college students.

Amanda Howell, a nutrition professor at CofC, explains the negative effects of caffeine in detail. 

 “I think it can be risky when you are consuming more than 200mg in one dose can lead to toxicity and restlessness and sleep disorders in moderation it can be helpful," she said.

Students are aware that too much caffeine will create unhealthy patterns, but that doesn’t stop them from consuming it.
