is it a bad idea for one to be sleep deprived in their late-teens and early-twenties?

I am a 19 year old college student who recently got out of school for summer break. I have been going to bed around 4 every day since August. I was wondering if it is a serious problem for a person my age to stay up so late continuously. If it is, is there anyway for me to reverse this habit?
