Thursday, May 23, will be Happiness Day at Central Washington University. The event is a project for students in the university’s William O. Douglas Honors College class, “What is Happiness?”
Activities are planned for between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. throughout the Student Union and Recreation Center. They will include guest speakers, music performances, bracelet making, video games, henna tattoos, caricatures by Central Washington Artists United, and outdoor activities, on the North Hall lawn, just north of the SURC, such as bocce ball and slacklining. Free giveaways are also planned.
At 6:00 p.m. in Black 152, the student Neuroscience Club will sponsor a showing of the movie “Patch Adams,” and host a discussion about the correlation between positive behavior and happiness.
The class has actually spurred the inauguration of a Happiness Club on campus.
