Go hide in a cave
Dec 2019
This place is good if you are on the road to shandala. The academics are rather woosy. They are accredited. Because of them accreditation standards had to go up. There is a certain level of arrogance there. They value living in a cave about the same as a Ph.D.

I would say that this place is a stand alone. I’ve been lucky to participate in a variety of ways at Naropa. If you’re looking for a unique experience of education and spirituality, check this place out and get a tour. You could also go to a performance.

Open minded Education

My daughter who struggled at CU had such a successful experience at Naropa. They are ahead of the "mindful" education and way of life trend.

A monument to pursuit of truth
Mar 2017 • Family
How exciting the only Buddhist university in the western world. I recommend simply going to the campus and standing there to feel the vibes. There are now several campuses, but the main one on Arapahoe is well worth a visit--originally in an old elementary school, brick, high ceilings. It's vibrant and aesthetically very pleasing (see if you can peek into the meditation room).

Naropa, a Contemplative Education
Jul 2015 • Solo
Not only for students, Naropa brings in speaker for the public, ones that aren't exactly mainstream, but interesting people, speaking about interesting topics.
Student have a great opportunity to study with some skillful teachers who recognize the contemplative world. The main campus is lovely, and is pleasant to walk around.

Touching small campus
If you like solitude and spirituality this is a great place for contemplation. It really gives one a pure sense of eastern philosophy and the meditation room is gripping even to a novice.

Peaceful Education
Sep 2014 • Friends
What an honor to visit this campus. My daughter is in her first semester here and I have been longing to visit. I appreciate not only your curriculum, but the peaceful air that abounds across the campus. Thank you for your work, and thank you for providing a place of education that supports what is needed for a solid educational experience, and nothing more. I appreciate the humble beauty of your campus.
