Bobby Bones Inspires First-Year Research On Collegiate Happiness

In Fall 2016 Jennifer Wortham, an associate professor of health sciences and human performance, is an avid Bobby Bones fan. 

She was teaching her first-year experience course to 16 Honors Program students. Wortham assigned her students to read Bobby's book - Bare Bones: I'm Not Lonely If You're Reading This Book - then do a research project based on the glass-half-full mentality that every day can be a good day.


One of the students in the class Jason Behnke told The University Of Tampa's online website

"We wanted to take a look at what makes college students have a good day. Once we started gathering the data, we realized it could lead to higher retention rates. If students are having a good day or more students are having a good day, the higher your retention rate would be."

Shoutout to Jennifer Wortham and her class of students for this awesome project!
