The Happiest! Ranking

QS Ranking, THE, Shanghai Ranking (ARWU)… You probably know all of them: rankings that analyses the greatest universities all over the world and organizes them in ranks based on diverse criteria, such as research and internationalization.

These are probably the best rankings to use as a reference when searching for a renowned university. They have reliable researches about it and are deemed important even for the universities themselves, which do their best to reach the top. But, what about the welfare of the students that are in these universities? These people will become the best in their fields in the future, but are they happy while studying?

Trying to answer these questions, “The Daily Beast” website created “The 100 Happiest Colleges” ranking in the United States. The criteria for ranking the American universities’ students happiness were “campus dining”, “campus housing”, “nightlife”, “average graduate indebtedness”, “freshman retention rate”, “total clubs/organizations” and “sunny days”. Well, we can’t disagree: eating makes one happy; sleeping makes one happy; not having to pay too much after graduation; going straight to second year, having extra-curricular activities options AND sunny days… That’s what we call a good college life!

Check which are the Top 10 HAPPIEST universities in the list below and start dreaming about your happy college life :)

No. 1 – Texas A&M University
No. 2 – Stanford University
No. 3 – University of Wisconsin
No. 4 – Florida State University
No. 5 – University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
No. 6 – University of Florida
No. 7 – Brigham Young University-Provo
No. 8 – University of Georgia
No. 9 – The University of Texas at Austin
No. 10 – Kansas State University

There are many universities here that we don’t see that often on the traditional rankings. Which ranking are you going to use? What do you expect from your college life? Don’t rely only on the most common sources of information: always go further, get outside the box and do what you love. If you do so, you will probably succeed.
