March 20, 2019 was an important day for laughter, positivity and well-being at the Al Ain Women’s campus (AAW), as it celebrated the International Day of Happiness in colorful style.
The AAW community joined their collective forces to create a highly successful day of happiness, joy and laughter. Happiness gifts and colorful balloons were placed next to the Check-In machines for staff and faculty, which encouraged everyone to begin their day with a smile.
The event started at 10am and included a distinctive Happiness Café that was designed and operated by the AAW Photography Club students. Mariam Al Habsi, Engineering student and Photography Club member said: “Working on this Happiness Café brought us all joy and laughter and we saw that happiness reflected on people who entered our café, as it was designed to deliver joy to all.”
The Happiness Club at AAW also participated in the day by organizing team-building activities, pet-related activities courtesy of Paws and Claws Veterinary Clinic, and free pampering for everyone from Euroasian, a local beauty salon. Prizes included gift cards from our brand new Starbucks on campus.
Everyone enjoyed the day with its many gifts and surprises, including an amazing violinist performance in the courtyard and delicious food catered from a local restaurant.
