Naropa University Reviews
Naropa is by far, one of the best experiences I've ever had with a University setting. Naropa gives you the space and the creative tools to allow yourself to dive into parts of the psyche previously unexplored. I was able to learn so much about myself that I had never known to existed, and in turn, it has improved my relationship to my family, friends, and my own self-esteem.
Naropa University is a wonderfully inclusive and non-traditional institution. Offering a variety of insightful and inspiring courses, I have experienced an immense amount of academic and personal growth. Additionally, Naropa celebrates diversity, encourages community-learning, and nurtures spirituality.
For my degree, we have a wide range of classes offered and teachers from various religious traditions. They allow us to go into the contemplative practice of these religions. This will be helpful for my future as a chaplain. We are lacking in learning to do counseling type work. For example, we have a communications class that is relying on a book from the '70's to discuss family systems. This should be updated. There are lots of great study areas around campus with students who are focused. The workload isn't overbearing and allows the students room to study more intensly if desired.
