There are many factors that contribute to your happiness at college, and it’s not necessarily about having the least amount of reading. How well a program fits with a student’s learning style and interests is a major factor in student well-being, along with the personality of a campus student body and a sense of community. Today, The Princeton Review published their list of colleges with the happiest students. The results are based on a survey of over 122,000 students who were asked, “Overall, how happy are you?”
The diversity of this list seems notable. While smaller private schools seems well-represented, there’s also an Ivy League school, state universities and an engineering college.
