Nine Atlantic Canadian universities participating in a MoodCheck Challenge: March 14-25

Students at nine universities across Atlantic Canada are checking their moods this March.

From March 14-25, students at participating universities are encouraged to use the MoodCheck app to track their moods. Twice a day, at random times, their phone will prompt them to check in and enter their mood, the activity they are taking part in, where they are, and who they are with.
