Be proud of what you put in

Choose happiness

When we’re satisfied our brains become more engaged, we’re more creative, more energetic, more resilient. We work harder, faster, and more intelligently. That’s why, contrary to popular belief, happiness doesn’t come from success, success comes from happiness. Choose Deakin, home of Victoria’s most satisfied students five years running.*
