Being a happy student means: your parents pay for your education so you don't have to worry about a massive student loan after graduation.

90 percent of KSU students get financial aid... Meaning mommy and daddy are not paying!
06:08 PM on 10/01/2012
That doesn't mean mommy and daddy aren't paying, it just means they can't afford it!
10:08 PM on 10/01/2012
Well, I am at KSU. I am getting student loans and my parents are NOT paying for anything. Plus, I am really happy. So at least for me this list is correct. I hate when people judge a college or a group of people who they have never met. It just doesn't make any sense to me.

Re: the slideshow, this is an odd photo choice for Thomas Aquinas College. For everyone's general information, the campus is absolutely stunning. http://tinyurl.com/9e79n9u

(Not that that's the only reason for loving the place. There are no words to describe how happy I was there.)

Beautiful! It isn't everything, but it helps.

There's nothing as charming as the South :) Happy to see Clemson and Vandy on the list. But just curious...where's UGA?
02:02 PM on 10/01/2012
UGA students are typically only happy when they start drinking on Thursday's and based on what happens w/ the Dawgs on Sat. Their happiness is contingent on too many things to make the list.

HAHA...cannot argue with that.

As someone who moved from the west coast to Manhattan, Kansas, I totally understand this piece. Not many people understand and realize how wonderful the city on Manhattan is until they are here. It has such an interesting dynamic of both a thriving college town and a smaller city at the same time, and the buildings on Campus are beautiful. I moved here a couple years ago and don't regret it a bit!

Somehow I can't see how Kansas State beat out my alma matter. UCSB is on a beach, people. ON. A. BEACH. Not to mention, UCSB has excellent classes and professors, gorgeous students, lots of environmentally friendly qualities, and a too-good-to-be-true party scene. I have never met anyone who regretted going there. Sometimes, in fact, my peers would say how happy they were that they didn't go to Cal or UCLA (which rank slightly higher academically than Santa Barbara in the UC system). We have the happiest students in the world on the most beautiful campus in the world.

Yeah but isla vista and sb is just a small town..living in LA has so many advantages, go bruins

I agree 100%! K-State is an amazing college; I can't imagine being anywhere else! Everyone is extremely nice here, the campus is beautiful, the teachers are helpful, they have so many helpful resources to make us better students, and I could go on and on. (Just my opinion and I know so many people who would agree with me.)

How 'scientific' is this?

'.....Now, our average number of student surveys (per college campus) upon which our ranking lists are annually tallied has jumped from about 125 students to about 325 students per campus....'

Wow! Some colleges have 20,000 or more students and 325 is the average number of replies? No details as to how they could possible 'weigh' the differences between large and small colleges based upon such a low number of responses.

I went to Vanderbilt and was quite happy, until I got the bill!

Kansas State? I guess anything's an improvement over a cornfield.

Clearly, you've never been to Manhattan (or Manhappiness, as it is often called). Consistently ranked as one of the best college bar scenes in the country, beautiful scenery (both campus and entire area), tons of outdoor stuff to do that is both close and free, great college athletics, and tons of campus activities and clubs that are super cheap. But hey, as Kansans we're used to people making bad jokes at our expense, usually based on stereotypes (and seriously, get those right too: Kansas = wheat, Iowa = corn ;) ).

I stand corrected!

I've never heard it called Man-happiness.

Columbia and Brown are always ranked with the happiest students. Did they pull names out of a hat this year.

First what are the critria for making them happy? Secondly, why are historically black colleges and universities never included in these surveys?

No majority engineering schools on the list? That's really surprising.

K-state has one of the best engineer programs in the US Rank. Which is ranked at #1 on the list.
09:00 AM on 10/01/2012
Clemson has an excellent engineering program.
