Psychology Today tackles the issue head on in their article aptly named “Toxic Positivity.”

My First Quarter- Nate Deitz

The most memorable thing about my first quarter was just meeting so many like-minded people in their own communities. It’s such a different culture here at Life U. Everybody is so happy and so fulfilled. Just being around that environment was awesome to see and be around. It was so much different than my undergrad program. All the professors were so friendly and they were all so interested in bringing the most out of their students. I felt like the students were also focused on being their best selves.

The Power of 3

Life University is expanding its horizons with explosive growth and transformation in large part to the cooperation and engagement of people, partnerships and philanthropy.
