    Fairfield is a very small town with very little job opportunities and does not offer a lot in the entertainment field. However, you will make lasting friendships fast and enjoy the small yet pretty town of Fairfield. The whole town is great and full of fun, energetic, talented and caring people. You have class 6 days a week. M-F 10a-3:15p (1 hour lunch) and Sat (10a-12p). Long hours!

    If your into exploring consciousness, and want a education thats based in consciousness, then this university is for you. However one needs to realized that this university is very Vedic knowledge orientated and may not be for everyone. The school does offer visitor weekends so prospective students can get a feel for it. The cost is $50 for the visitor weekend and this includes a free shuttle from the airport, lodging at the school, meals, and a shuttle ride to the airport. If you are going to live on campus, fyi, the dorms are very strict on being drug, alcohol, and tobacco free. Many of the students who attend the school are very focused on being drug and alcohol free while learning and practicing meditation. Also the town of Fairfield Iowa is a very small town and once you see it you will understand. Fyi for cell phones, Sprint doesn't work very well and your fancy phone will be an expensive paper weight, AT&T is a little better but not by much, Verizon works well their and seems to be the top dog in that town. Living off campus is not expensive as many of the rental prices seem to be between $200-$450/month, and there is a lot of housing close to the school.
