This happiness study will be focusing on how happy college students are in their school experience. It will be based on the theory of Bradburn, “Close Social Relationships are Essential to Well-Being.” This theory explains how having close social relationships with others are needed to be truly happy. “Although laypeople probably understand that close friends and family are correlated with happiness, they may not realize that they are necessary for happiness, as well as for health and optimal cognitive functioning” (Diener & Oishi, 2005).
