As news media poured into Iowa last month to cover the presidential campaign, Maharishi University of Management (MUM) became part of the news story, with ABCNews.Com posting a 12-minute feature. Other coverage included Spain's main newspaper (El Pais), The Washington Post, and Vice.com.

ABC's Josh Haskell received a tour of the Sustainable Living Center and interviewed professor David Fisher, who explained Consciousness-Based education and the benefits it brings to students.

He also interviewed a computer science class, asking them about the advantages of an MUM education and of their practice of the Transcendental Meditation technique. The students praised the Transcendental Meditation technique and the University for allowing them to think more clearly and learn more effectively in a stress-free environment.

In addition, he filmed the students briefly as they practiced the Transcendental Meditation technique.
The segment from ABC News can be viewed online.

A reporter for The Washington Post came onto campus to meet with Executive Vice-President Craig Pearson and researcher Fred Travis. He toured the Sustainable Living Center and linked to the MUM website in the online article.

The Washington DC Bureau Chief for El Pais and his photographer met with Lark Svenson at the downtown Information Center and were surprised to find out about MUM. They were eager to include the University in the article they were writing on Iowa and spent time on campus.
