I am looking forward to getting out of here. The lack of organization and communication coupled with the bad environment is excused by their religious and spiritual beliefs, which gives a horrible impression on Buddhism.
If you are looking for a place to learn and get a degree that will impress those not from this sort of a community, don't waste your time and money.
While the instructors may have the students best interest in mind, clear communication is constantly lacking. I have never before been unable to get a clear idea of what the assignment is.
If you're trying to stay sober and you don't want to deal with kids smoking an drinking in the dorms on a fairly constant basis, stay away from campus housing.Naropa is great for some, but not for the serious student. This institution is a money sucking machine that tries to trap students in their system. If you don't kiss ass, you're not going to be treated with respect. A poor excuse for a Buddhist institution.
