Naropa University of Boulder, Colorado is insanely afraid of free speech concerning it’s program. If you have something to say about Naropa University and it is less than positive, Naropa University will come after you with attorneys. A few months after starting my old website, the Naropa Biz, I was contacted by Jackson-Kelly, a law firm that represents Naropa University. Despite the fact that I believed that what I was doing was right, I was in need of money and Naropa University still had not paid me my confirmation deposit. So, I entered into an agreement with Naropa to receive my $250 confirmation deposit back and in exchange, I surrendered all of the content and domain names of The Naropa Biz. The thing of it is, is that I am only contractually obligated not to use Naropa University’s Intellectual Property, which is just fine by me. There is plenty of information on . .
But I get at least a few e-mails every month that tell me that they cannot find any other accurate information that shows the dark side of Naropa University. Considering the fact that I have experienced the legal harassment from Naropa University, I can understand why people are reticent to post their experiences on the Internet. I am a critic of Naropa University and I am hoping to publicize personal stories of Naropa University students, alumni and faculty. Anyone who wants to speak out can have their personal story posted on this website, free of charge. I am more than willing to post personal stories submitted to me via the contact form and if you would like, I am willing to interview you and take your personal story so others can hear it. I am even willing to help you create your own website or blog so you can post about your Naropa experiences, whether or not they are positive. I would rather have much more people talking, whether it is good or bad, than have a real dearth of information.
The thing is that Naropa University is afraid of people speaking out and letting people know what they can expect at Naropa University. They discourage people to talk about Naropa online, which is why I happen to have taken the most photos of Naropa’s campus and student life events during my time at Naropa. I believe that the more expression concerning Naropa, the more likely it will be for students at Naropa to share their honest experiences.
