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 :)
