Abstract

In the past decade, social media usage in college-aged students has grown exponentially and has affected students both positively and negatively. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to understand the overall effect that social media usage has on NCAA Division III athletes' sleep quality, anxiety levels, and perception of their own performance. A cross-sectional study was conducted measuring University of Lynchburg female student-athletes and University of Lynchburg male student-athletes. Data was collected by using a series of 5 surveys: Pittsburgh sleep quality index, Anxiety Symptoms Questionnaire, Subjective Performance Questionnaire, Performance Satisfaction Questionnaire, and a Social Media Usage survey. I hypothesize that students who report a high score on the Social Media survey will report poor scores on the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index, Anxiety Symptoms Questionnaire, Subjective Performance Questionnaire, and Performance Satisfaction Questionnaire.
