University College of Bahrain celebrated the World Smile Day. Harvey Ball, a commercial artist from Worcester, Massachusetts created the smiley face in 1963. As the years passed he became concerned about the over-commercialization of his symbol, and how its original meaning and intent had become lost in the constant repetition of the marketplace. He declared that the first Friday in October each year, would henceforth be World Smile Day.
In spirit of the same, UCB decided that at UCB students should devote one day each year to smiles and kind acts. World Smile day was celebrated on 8th November at UCB Campus. Smiley badges were distributed to students at the campus and a few students wrote a message on smile.
