For the first time, KAUST took part in the Interntional Day of Happiness on March 20th. Community Life employees decorated their facilities with smiling images and were decked out in bright yellow tee shirts. Children at the day care paraded to upbeat happy songs at both the Island and Harbor Daycare Centers and shared their smiles with spectators. Community members exchanged their smiles for complimentary movie tickets, bowling, play-land, golfing, balloons and ice-cream. Happiness postcards expressing praise and gratitude were available to fill out and share throughout the day. Government Affairs hosted an array of celebrations with live music, games, a photo booth, free drinks and giveaways on campus.
