UTS Opened Doors for Myself, and Others

UTS opened two big doors for me—one from behind and one in front, and a lot of windows too.

I joined the unification family in 1973 just six months away from getting my bachelor’s degree in mathematics at the University of Utah. After three and a half years of studying in Salt Lake City while on a swimming scholarship I decided to leave school and join the Unification Church. I have never regretted that offering.

Life at Barrytown by Dan Fefferman (UTS’86)

UTS was a Mecca for me, a place where God allowed me to absorb the knowledge of the Christian centuries in preparation to return to the mission field strengthened and enriched.

UTS Through Students' Eyes

Twenty five Barrytown students celebrated Thanksgiving in a unique way this year-with Tai Chi, meditation, and lectures on Samsara and Karma by a Tibetan Buddhist Monk, Lama Wangdue, who holds the venerable title “Geshe” from the Sera Jay Monastery in India.

The two-credit course on Buddhism began the evening before Thanksgiving and spanned until Sunday afternoon. Student response was positive. One reflected that the course was “one of the best” he had experienced at UTS. Another remarked that the exposure to Buddhism helped her better understand her own religious tradition.

Geshe Lama Wangdue was appointed to the UTS faculty as Lecturer in Buddhism in the Fall 2007. The next Buddhism intensive course with Lama Wangdue is scheduled for the Spring of 2008. Contact the registrar for details.
