Maharishi University of Management

2 years, 10 months ago

Hey, y’all. I recently found an interesting University option…

http://www.mum.edu/index.html

“Our unique educational programs fulfill a commitment to four broad areas of responsibility:

Holistic development of students — cultivation of consciousness, mind, body, and behavior
Academic excellence — training at the forefront of knowledge in each discipline and in the ability to think critically and act effectively and ethically
Scholarship that expands the domains of knowledge, expressed in all four areas of scholarship — discovery, teaching and learning, integration, and application.
Improved quality of life for the individual, the community, the nation, and the world.”

What do you think? Does any one know more about this school or have any experiences with it?

Hmmm, just found the “Student Behavior” policies. http://www.mum.edu/student_conduct/welcome.html

I don’t know how I feel about it. Too restricting for me, I think…

Pretty much like the web site. It’s just sweet. I am reading the Frequently Asked Questions right now.

“The tuition at Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa is $24,430 for in-state students and $24,430 for out-of-state students.”

@arenofnote, hahaha what the hell? Look at that “repeated unexcused absences and tardiness in any course” What if I want to meditate then? You know… I think that we can read the same stuff on the internet. :) Not that it’s a bad idea for a university. You can just buy books and read on High Existence.

Let me know if anyone has any questions about this MUM. This is my first semester and I started classes last week. Absolutely LOVING the people here, the creative energy, the food (all organic, mostly local and follows Ayurvedic principles) is incredible, most everyone practices meditation (TM) and a lot of amazing things are going on here… I am on the pre-med track but the environmental sustainability program is HUGE right now. The tuition is a bit expensive, that’s for sureeee and at times the first class required for all incoming students (Science and Technology of Consciousness) can seem like a bit an indoctrination into Maharishi’s principles. But from what I have heard and am currently experiencing, personally, the pros absolutely outweigh the cons.

@collinsj2009, Hi! I am looking into this university and have a few questions: A little while ago I read a few bad reviews about the dorm quality, so how is the quality of the school buildings and land in general? Also, is it all vegetarian or does the school serve organic meat as well? And can you just describe the atmosphere and the people a little more in-depth? I know this is a lot to answer, and if you do ( I understand if you don’t feel like writing so much) I’d really appreciate it! :)

@drailarnnat, Hey! The dorms definitely aren’t the nicest, they are pretty old but I am currently living in the girl’s dorm hall (Hildenbrand) and I reallyyy don’t mind it. The rooms are really large and everybody gets there own. There are about 4-5 girls to every bathroom and there is a meditation hall on the first floor. The land itself is awesomeeee, super beautiful prairie land with a lot of hiking and a reservoir about a 5 minute walk away. The food is lacto-vegetarian, so no meat, fish or eggs. It is all organic and seriously amazing… definitely one of my favorite parts about MUM. They get all of their dairy sourced from a couple miles up the road, Radiance Farms. The cows are all pasture raised, fed organic, and music is played for the cows throughout the day to align their energy centers (no joke). The atmosphere and people are what makes it… EVERYONE is so motivated, open and progressive. Since we all practice meditation and are looking to build more sustainable communities in the future, it seems that there is a common thread among every student. Any more questions just let me know!
