CMC "Happiest College in America"

No surprise. The Daily Beast released its ranking yesterday of the "100 Happiest Colleges in America," and Claremont McKenna came out on the very top. CMC was followed by Harvard, Pomona and Rice.

The blog's methodology measures the quality of student life using a mix of data from College Prowler, a popular college review series, and U.S. News & World Report College Rankings, the premiere college ranking source. Between the two, the Daily Beast rankings take into account campus housing, dining and nightlife, student indebtedness and retention rate, the number of clubs on campus, and the weather climate.

Take a look at the full rankings here, as well as the most stressed out colleges in the country here.
