This study's purpose was to explore the effects screen time has on college students' occupational performance. The mixed-methods design utilized a quantitative online survey and qualitative face-to-face interviews. Results indicated a majority of respondents used their phones for social media or web browsing throughout the day or briefly during class; however, the notable limitations of screen time involvement are its impact on interactions with family and peers, academics, and sleep.
