"Maharishi Vedic Science Draws New Students"
As of early this month 174 new students had arrived on campus, with 70 of those indicating an interest in Maharishi
Vedic Science (SM) as the focus of their studies.
According to Chris Taft, director of U.S. admissions, 30 of the
108 new undergrads indicated an interest in majoring in Maharishi Vedic Science while forty master's and PhD students
will do their graduate work in this area.
The increased interest is the result of an approach by Admissions
officers to speak in detail about what makes MUM special right from the very first conversation with a prospective student.
"We're very bold in speaking about
Maharishi's knowledge right up front," said Admissions officer Adrienne Schoenfeld. "Their education begins
with the first contact. It's bringing us students."
Admissions counselors recommend that interested students read Maharishi's
book, Science of Being. They also tell prospective students about the TM-Sidhi® program, and
that they can help contribute to world peace through the group practice of the Transcendental Meditation® and *TM-Sidhi programs.
want a tool to help the world," Ms. Schoenfeld said. "There's been a shift of consciousness in society. There
are thousands who want this education."
Ms. Schoenfeld said the question prospective students ask most frequently
is, "Why haven't I heard about this before?"
