On 25 May 2013 KTVO reported: The Morales-Rivera family moved from Chile to Iowa, USA, in 1984 in pursuit of the American Dream. 'We wanted a Consciousness-Based education for our daughters,' Tina Morales-Rivera said. That place for a Consciousness-Based education was at Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield.

On Saturday, 25 May, Tina graduated with a master's degree and her 26-year-old twin daughters received their bachelor's degrees. The Class of 2013—334 students representing 54 countries—was the largest graduating class in the university's history, according to Fairfield Mayor Ed Malloy: 'They really are on a growth path.'

'I've been to a lot of commencements and I don't think I've ever been on a platform where I've had as many different nations represented as there are here,' said Iowa Senator Tom Harkin, who gave the Commencement address.
