Least Happy Colleges

Unhappy Colleges, Least Happy Universities, Unhappy Students at Colleges
West Point is one of America’s most prestigious institutions, but apparently it’s also home to a number of unhappy students. We’ve certainly helped several transfer from West Point over the years to other highly selective colleges.

Yesterday, we posted about the happiest colleges in America, as according to an 80-question survey completed by 136,000 students. So, naturally, today we’ll post about the unhappiest colleges in America, as according to The Princeton Review. We’ll leave out the colleges that aren’t highly selective (so our readers know, Manhattanville College tops this particular ranking of least happy colleges). But on to the more selective universities…

The United States Naval Academy apparently isn’t a breeding ground of happy students. Navy ranks as the sixth least happy college in the nation. McGill University isn’t in the United States so apparently this ranking is including Canadian universities, too. Why not? Apparently you can just run through a little forest and end up in Canada, as a fugitive on the run from thousands of police offers recently taught us. Anyhow, McGill ranks as the eighth least happy college in the now amended America AND Canada. Students at West Point apparently aren’t very happy either, with the United States Military Academy ranking twelfth, according to the results of this survey. Wesleyan College took the fifteenth position, and we figured we’d write about at least one more college rounding out the (top?) twenty, but we suspect our readers won’t care much about Indiana University of Pennsylvania. It seems unwise to major in geography at this school. Yikes!
