The radio.  Music makes me happy!

Q.  Best advice you've received about college?
Live abroad.  I participated in an exchange program during my undergraduate degree and it was such a broadening experience.  You don't have to study abroad a whole semseter; just find a short spring or summer program that is more your style.
