Maharishi University of Management Reviews
The entire student body and all faculty meditate twice a day and this creates a uniquely warm and peaceful atmosphere on campus. It's something intangible but very real, everyone comments on it. My parents noticed it when they were here. The cafeteria is organic, mom-GMO. Everything is geared toward healthy lifestyle and making the most of our mental and physical potential. MUM is not typical, it's far superior! The dorms are all single rooms, not shared, so there's privacy. (Uncommon) Faculty aren't paid much: they're here because they believe in MUM's mission of developing the whole person, through meditation (TM) and wholesome routine. I've loved my years here and feel uniquely qualified from this school to go out and succeed in any environment, because I'm using more of my mental and physical potential!
Having a university that sincerely puts the development of their students in an individual sense is outstanding and exceptional. I was able to take advantage of how well facilitated this is and it paid off many times over what I paid for my attendance here. I would like to see the development of the Sustainable Living department, the school become more self-sufficient in a general sense, and a more clear adherence to academic standards in order for this school to really reach it's potential.
Love the school, the block system, the teachers, the atmosphere! I wish they had more classes available - but the classes they do have are amazing (many of them I would retake in a heartbeat if I had the time). The campus feels safe, secure, and comfortable. The food leaves something to be desired, but its not for lack of trying. (They have good salsa though).
