smile...you're getting educated

my beloved alma mater, claremont mckenna college, was named the happiest college in the nation.  close runners up included our sister schools (#3 pomona, #5 harvey mudd, #6 scripps, and #22 pitzer) and my alma mater to be.

i find it interesting that you don't see a public university on this list until #13:  UCLA...right down the street.  does that mean money (or, scholarships and financial aid, as the case may be) really does buy happiness?  or is it sunshine?  most of the west coast schools in the top 25 are in southern california...

we were, indeed, happy...

Yeah, I noticed that the Ivy League is pretty well represented too. I would say consensus is that money does indeed buy happiness.
