College students experience many wellness-related challenges including stress, health concerns, mental health problems, and high attrition rates. This study utilized a brief web-based, Solution-Focused Wellness intervention among college students, and employed a quasi-experimental, longitudinal, no control design. Data was collected from 130 college students at three-time points (pre, post, six-week follow-up). Results demonstrate significant improvement over time for perceived wellness (p = .002), satisfaction with life (p = .018), happiness (p = .000), and a reduction in stress (p = .047) indicating that this may be an effective approach to improving college student well-being.
