Visitors Weekends at Maharishi University
What to expect at an MUM Visitors Weekend...
Some experiences cannot be described in words. Being a student at MUM is one of those experiences. Come for yourself and get a taste of student life during one of our Visitors Weekends. All you need to do is show up and we take care of the rest!
“I was struck by the happiness of students and the loving, open atmosphere. People laugh here. People hug here. The professors are open and welcoming when approached.” -Visitor
Most people describe the MUM Visitors Weekend as transformational and eye-opening. They see the potential for higher education that has less stress, fatigue, peer pressure, and unhealthy habits. At MUM, our students learn in a supportive, healthy environment, while having time for extra-curricular activities and self-development. Coming to our Visitors Weekend will give you a chance to talk with students and faculty and ask as many questions as you want.
When coming to MUM, visitors are surrounded by people who most likely share their own values, life goals, and world views. This brings a feeling of comfort, ease, and a sense of community. But, don’t take our word for it, come see for yourself if this is a place for you.
We provide meals and lodging. U.S. prospective students with financial need can apply for a travel scholarship. To apply for this support, register for one of the Visitors Weekends above and then complete the online Travel Scholarship Application Form before the Visitors Weekend.
Do I need to sign up in advance?
Yes, you need to register online at least 8 days in advance (by 2:00 p.m. Central Time) of the Visitors Weekend you wish to attend. Call the Admissions Office at 800-369-6480 or 641-472-1110 if you wish to come on shorter notice — these requests will be considered on a space-available basis.
Is there a registration fee?
Yes, there is a charge of $60 to partially cover our costs. Lodging and meals are provided by MUM for the Weekend.
Come join us on the MUM Visitors Weekend and have your own transformative experience (see the sign-up form in blue below).
“Hi everyone, I just recently returned home from a visitors weekend there and just wanted to say that I was absolutely blown away with how it went.
Honestly, I didn’t know what to expect but it was so much more than I could have ever imagined; the students and faculty were amazing, everyone greeting each other with smiles and love. I was so moved and so inspired by everything that I saw and felt over the three days I was there that I just really wanted to say thank you.
Why the whole world is not like this magical place I don’t know, but I do know that soon it will be a place I call home! Thanks everyone so much for this profound experience!”
“MUM seems to have what most U.S. universities lack. The peaceful atmosphere and connection between students & faculty as equals makes it very unique.” — Amanda Fowler, Springfield, MO
