Online multimedia is very popular in today’s generation. Many people are using different online multimedia platforms as a means to enjoy, study, and connect with other people around the world. This study sought to determine the online multimedia screen time and the level of happiness of the college students of Notre Dame of Midsayap College as well as the relationship between these two variables. The researchers used descriptive- correlational research design and purposive sampling technique in gathering data through a survey questionnaire administered to 50 respondents who are active users of different online multimedia. The findings of the study revealed that online multimedia screen time and level of happiness have a significant relationship. Furthermore, contrary to the findings of previous studies, this study suggests that if online multimedia screen time is increased, students’ level of happiness also increases.
