Citing that certain students regularly experience “feelings of glee” and derive a “hopeful bliss” from their day-to-day lives, a groundbreaking study from the University of Pennsylvania psychology department has determined that some students are quite happy.

While researchers were initially skeptical about the results, their finding that a sizable percentage of students are not only hacking it, but thriving, stood up to multiple rounds of meticulous statistical analysis.
