    Mission Statement

    Maharishi University of Management was founded in 1971 by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi to unfold in every student the full potential of consciousness and thereby realize the long-sought ideal of education to create ideal citizens - graduates who can fulfill their own aspirations while promoting all good in society.

    To this end the University has pioneered a unique system of higher education that systematically cultures the students' full alertness and creative intelligence as the basis of profound and fruitful learning. Maharishi University of Management integrates knowledge of the traditional disciplines with knowledge and scientifically verified technologies of consciousness, primarily the Transcendental Meditation© program. Through this integrated approach, the University develops the students' ability to manage their lives successfully, to grow steadily in health, happiness, and wisdom, and to achieve both personal and professional satisfaction.

    The University's unique educational programs are designed to fulfill a commitment to four broad areas of responsibility:

    * Holistic development of students: consciousness, mind, and body
    * Academic excellence
    * Original research that extends the frontiers of knowledge
    * Improving the quality of life of the individual, the nation, and the world.

    The kind that feel out of place. All of us here are dreamers and searchers just looking for other people like us. Many of us have lived completely different lives before realizing how much more there is and changing completely. It's not perfect, but the adventure and love that is here makes any small faults meaningless. I love it. read full review

    If your into exploring consciousness, and want a education thats based in consciousness, then this university is for you. However one needs to realized that this university is very Vedic knowledge orientated and may not be for everyone. The school does offer visitor weekends so prospective students can get a feel for it. The cost is $50 for the visitor weekend and this includes a free shuttle from the airport, lodging at the school, meals, and a shuttle ride to the airport. If you are going to live on campus, fyi, the dorms are very strict on being drug, alcohol, and tobacco free. Many of the students who attend the school are very focused on being drug and alcohol free while learning and practicing meditation. Also the town of Fairfield Iowa is a very small town and once you see it you will understand. Fyi for cell phones, Sprint doesn't work very well and your fancy phone will be an expensive paper weight, AT&T is a little better but not by much, Verizon works well their and seems to be the top dog in that town. Living off campus is not expensive as many of the rental prices seem to be between $200-$450/month, and there is a lot of housing close to the school. read full review
