Last fall I created an informal research project I called “Where” Makes You Happy. I was curious to see how the physical spaces on our campus could be impacting student’s happiness. Research shows that physical design of our communities can impact how resilient and happy the people are because of factors like access to green space and whether or not there is a place in the community that facilitates social connectivity.
The results were interesting and showed some dramatic differences and commonalities between international students and domestic students.
I wonder if anyone else has looked into this? If so I would love to hear more from you!
