They'll teach you some Buddhism in there too, by the way!
And, being Buddhists, we don't have personalities... mwahahahaha!!!

Hi Tiger, in the USA Naropa University is the closest you may get. This was established by Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche. It is located in Boulder Colorado. Check the link here http://www.naropa.edu/about-naropa/index.php

It's clear that the education system in Florida has failed you so far, especially if you are only now learning that there are such things as libraries, that libraries contain books, and that you can learn from reading those books.
Finish school and get out of Florida. Colorado would be a good start. Until then, get to the library and study.
From the OP's track record, I am inclined to think otherwise. To state that about a state's education, you must have extraordinary evidence unless it was meant as a pun to the OP...It's clear that the education system in Florida has failed you so far, especially if you are only now learning that there are such things as libraries, that libraries contain books, and that you can learn from reading those books.
unlike Soka which is part of the Soka Gakkai neo-buddhist cult..ugh.
ps as for a buddhist collage, you'd have to ask an artist...
The Tai-ching states "the women in the realms of Mara, Sakra and Brahma all neither abandoned ( their old) bodies nor received (new) bodies. They all received buddhahood with their current bodies (genshin)" Thus these verses state that the dharma nature is like a great ocean. No right or wrong is preached (within it) Ordinary people and sages are equal, without superiority or inferiority
