COLLEGE STATION -- Texas A&M University students are the happiest in the nation, according to a survey cited by the Huffington Post.

The online news outlet posted a survey by The Daily Beast that rated “happiest colleges” on several key factors, awarding scores on the basis of 10 being the highest ranking possible. The Daily Beast is a news reporting and opinion website affiliated with Newsweek magazine.

Texas A&M scored 10 for “Overall Student Experience” and 9.8 in the “Would You Do It Again?” category. It received a 9.3 score for “Best Student Health Center” and 9.2 for “Full-time Freshman Student Retention.”

The ranking of the happiest colleges puts Texas A&M at No. 1, followed by Stanford and the University of Wisconsin, notes the Huffington Post article. Other schools listed in the top 10 are (in order) Florida State, North Carolina, University of Florida, Brigham Young, University of Georgia, University of Texas at Austin, and Kansas State.
