IS MAITRIPA COLLEGE RIGHT FOR YOU?

After reflecting on my first semester, Maitripa has shown itself to be an incredible college. There is something very unique going on at this school and I cannot express properly how grateful I am to have become a part of it.

Maitripa College students come from all over the world and bring diverse professional, personal, and spiritual backgrounds to their education, but they all share a common longing: to harness their potential for greater happiness, meaning, and beneficial achievement in their lives, whether that achievement is focused on their family, their community, or the larger world: often their aim is to benefit all three!  

Maitripa students also thrive on rigorous scholasticism and a systematic, integrative approach to education. Our students are excited by topics and methods of learning which stretch the mind to understand and eventually observe the nature of reality and its implications for how to approach one’s daily life. They want to go beyond mere intellectualization to deeper meaning, to know that what they are studying will lead them somewhere truly valuable, not only for the moment, but for the rest of their lives, and beyond.

Not all Maitripa students are Buddhist, but they all share a respect for the Buddhist tradition and its heritage of philosophical inquiry, meditative practice, and ethical responsibility. Maitripa students recognize that their thoughts, behaviors, and actions affect the world in which they live; that they are an inseparable part of an interconnected whole. It is this recognition which drives them to explore how to develop their minds, how to work with their emotions, how to best live, love, and serve. And how to find joy every step of the way.
