Abstract: Well-being is both the satisfaction, happy mood and the positive experience due to potential expectation,or attend to social activities. The concept of well-being synthesizes hedonic and eudemonia and is the unity of subjective(emotional) well-being, psychological well-being and social well-being. From the existing literature, the time orientation of human experience affects the levels of human’s well-being. Time perspective reflects the time identification of individual experience world. In view of these, to assess the wellbeing of undergraduates with the time perspective, 702 participants completed the Youth Students’ Time Perspective Questionnaire and Mental Health Continuum Short Form in Adults. The results show as following.The first, the majority of subjects experienced a relatively high well-being and there were no differences in gender, grade and major. The second, attributes of the past, present, and future time perspective were associated with the emotional, psychological and social well-being. The third, the level of emotional and social well-being in past time orientation individuals was significantly lower than that of the present and future orientation individuals. These results suggest the levels of well-being in undergraduates are influenced by the attributes of time perspective. Future research could further explore the relationship between the time orientation, the nature of life events in human experience and the well-being.
