Austin, Texas (USA) -- Though the Austin Zen Center could provide a calm meditative environment close to UT campus for Buddhist students, more students use the facility for class assignment research than participating in Buddhist practices.

"We have an awful lot of people who come and ask us to help with their papers - people who are taking classes and need to write religion and journalism papers, so a lot come that way," said Barbara Seirin Kohn, the center's guiding priest and teacher.
