College Happiness Clubs


“College students often get stereotyped as stressed out and sleep-deprived. But at universities across the country, students are aiming to change that as they join clubs dedicated to a common, joyful purpose: spreading happiness. Northwestern University is home to one of the country’s oldest college happiness clubs, which began unofficially in 2008 when a group of students handed out hot chocolate outside the library on a cold evening right before finals week. This semester the club hosted events like “Bubbles, Bubbles, Bubbles,” where children’s soap bubbles, bubble wrap and bubble gum were handed out for students’ amusement.” These seemingly light-hearted activities in campuses across the country have powerful implications for the overall well-being of students.
