Designing Your Life—Helping Students Find Happiness
You can choose from many paths in life. But which one will make you the happiest?
That is the question at the heart of Designing Your Life, an elective course at Stanford. The class helps students like Ian McColl, '17 broaden their perspective and evaluate all the potential roads they could travel.
"Designing Your Life is one of the most interesting and useful classes I will take at school. It’s an incredible opportunity to take a step back and really think about where you are in the moment."
—Ian McColl, '17
Designing Your Life teaches students to use "design thinking" to build a life they love. Donors who give through The Stanford Fund give students the opportunity to take innovative classes like Designing Your Life.
