In this study, we adopted three questionnaires to collect the data of stressful life events, operational effectiveness and subjective well-being of college students. Using SPSS 16.0 and AMOS software, we analysed the relation between stressful life events, operational effectiveness and subjective well-being. It turned out that a) subjective well-being decreases when stressful life events increases, subjective well-being increases when operational effectiveness increases; b) there are four paths through which stressful life events influences subjective well-being: stressful life events have a direct negative effect on subjective well-being; stressful life events affect subjective well- being through confidence; stressful life events affect subjective well-being through cognitive level and degree of confidence; stressful life events affect subjective well-being through confidence and competence.
