Happiness Boot Camp

Congratulations HBC 15 Graduates!

Please join us at Bread Coffee House for our graduation ceremony!
March 20th 4pm - 6pm

According to Lyubormirsky, King, and Diener (2005), happier individuals are more successful in multiple aspects of life, including having better chances at securing a job, more superior productivity, more resilience, less burnout, and better relationships. 

Flourish Emory saw a much-needed focus on helping students flourish at Emory University’s academically rigorous environment. This sparked the creation of Happiness Boot Camp (HBC), a six-week program for students so that they can become more resilient towards the various stressors they may face at Emory University.

Applications for participants for the fall 2015 Happiness Boot Camp will be released this summer! The program will run from the week of September 1st, 2015 until the week of October 6th, 2015 with participants attending one session a week. If you have any questions, please email us at

Because of the commitment and the nature of the program, we ask that students who intend to apply adhere to attending their HBC session each week for the entire program. If you foresee that this may be too much for your personal schedule, we encourage students to consider applying at another time.
