We would like to extend a warm welcome to any veteran who wants to inquire about what it’s like to study here, about coming on a visitors weekend, or to actually enroll.
Veterans like our university for many reasons. Life at MUM is a structured routine, and we have a disciplined, focused, happy student body.
One thing that appeals to veterans in a big way is the stress-reducing Transcendental Meditation program, which is integrated into the MUM curriculum. Many veterans have served in high-stress positions during their military service, and they find that the TM program helps them dissolve and move on from deep rooted stresses that otherwise hamper their performance in both life and classroom situations.
Feel free to give us a call or send a web inquiry with any questions about becoming a student at MUM, as a first step toward a renewed and successful rest of your life.
Life after the military
"I've only been out of the military about a month…” Sgt. Supriya Vidic, U.S.Army, describes MUM.
James Wilson grew up in Seattle, Washington, and joined the U.S. Air Force at 19. Always looking for unique experiences, he became a battlefield meteorologist. While stationed in the U.S., Europe, the United Arab Emirates, and Iraq, he provided combat weather support to Army aviation and infantry units. In 2011, he was named the U.S. Air Forces in Europe Battlefield Weather Noncommissioned Officer of the Year.
James had been interested in quantum physics and discovered the work of Dr. John Hagelin. Soon he learned about the Transcendental Meditation® program and read Maharishi’s Science of Being and Art of Living, which inspired him to learn the TM® technique. But it wasn’t until he left the Air Force, after six years of service, that he was able to learn TM in the fall of 2012.
Within less than a year, he came to MUM for a Visitors Weekend, enrolled to study Maharishi Vedic Science. “I love everything about MUM,” James said. “I love the people and the support you get, the consciousness approach, and being able to incorporate Maharishi’s knowledge into every discipline. It’s such a warm and happy place to be. I always feel at home.”
