I am now a senior at CNM. Obviously, this last year has been difficult. For the most part, all my instructors are easily and readily accessible. I'm not sure how it is on campus right now as there are only a few classes being held, but prior to the pandemic, I loved going to campus. There are a lot of resources on campus, particularly the main campus, where you can go to have group meetings, discussions, or even personal study time with availability to extensive study matierals.
It’s a great school. The staff is very responsive. It’s very affordable!
CNM was great for a community college! The facility was always super nice and helpful! They always helped provide you with as many resources as possible whether it be for registration or for your academic studying needs. I really enjoyed the time that I spent there!

My High School self was reluctant to go to college for personal reasons at the time. If I could go back and talk to him I would tell him to do it, I had an option at that time to move across country and start over at a new school. I should have done so then. I would have said to go, get the core requirements out of the way, take a few classes to see what you would like and then go for it. I may be older now but I still realize education is more important than anything as a key to getting a better job. I would definitely tell my younger self what I am in, the benefits of getting in earlier than I did currently and tell him no matter what to not lose hope. Classes may get frustrating or hard, but the reward is amazing once you accomplish what you set out to do.
Any and everyone!
Many courses to choose from with a variety of classes.
I don't believe that there is a person who shouldn't attend this school. I believe that first year college students no matter what age should attend this school first because they will learn the college life style and recieve credits with much less stress. To me this college is the first step to learning exactly how the college life is. Once one gets to know and understand the college life style, they can then transfer to a college of there desire with the confidence and self satisfaction of knowing how to prepare and be ready for their courses.
Id consider the atmosphere and classroom sizes. You really cant get much one on one time with professors in 4-year colleges. Especially big bulky classes like economics and pyschology.
I chose to go to Central New Mexico Community College instead of going to the lead university because I was scared to fail at a higher lever college. Once I got to the school i realized that it was so much better to start there than anywhere else, they have smaller class sizes so you actually get one on one time with your professors and they really care. the learning criteria is just as hard as a regular university and as i've met my professors and the people around me, l've had a better chance at success.
how exspensive schooling was so i could make a better set up for college funding and alow for me to enshure i could get all of the classes that i could get in more efficiently so i could acheve the degree that i whanted farther a head than i am
The best one I have found for the education that I am looking for.
Its a lot cheaper at CNM than UNM when it offers the same courses at the level I'm at.
My program is small, only three teachers teach in it so the classes tend to be fought over to gain spots. Those who are in it WANT to be in there. They decided that they wish to have a degree in hotel or restaurant/bar management and so they actually work and contribute and don't slide in class.
The overall school is ok but my comment here pertains to a particular school named Applied Technologies. My advice for any student who is planning to take courses within this school should be advised to go to another school as you will be much better off doing so. I decided to attend this school and take classes in electronics but the coursework is very weak and it seems as though the administration in the school is still trying to figure out a curriculum for the program of study. The program itself is geared to place people in manufacturing and these jobs are not currently seeking people for employment and the people they are seeking need to have a Bachelor's Degree in order to even be considered for a position and the pay is not the greatest for the amount of education required for the positions that are offered in industry. I recently found out also, as they do not tell you this up front, but none of the credits earned in this program are transferable to very many schools and as it is there are only about 2 schools that will transfer credits from this program. For example, if you are planning to take classes in the electronics program and want to transfer the credits to UNM, think again because UNM will not accept transfer credits from this program of study from CNM. I mentioned that the coursework is very weak in this program. Not only is the coursework weak but there are a number of instructors who's knowledge of the material is very weak also as when someone asks questions about the material covered a majority of the instructors there have to get back to you with the answer. I did say that there are a majority of instructors like that, but, there is one that is very good and is very knowledgeable about the material and can prove what he says in his instruction very quickly, he is very detailed and uses very good examples to explain the material. The name of that instructor is Mark Davis. As for the material itself, I have found that the administration keeps on trying to stuff more and more material into the courses to where the instructors are having to cover the material at a very fast pace in order to get it all the material covered and thus it makes it very hard to be able to learn the material effectively as the material content feels as though it is covered in a rushed and hasty pace and there is not enough time to really comprehend and understand the material. Most of the material also is taught through the use of computers and not much instruction is provided by the actual instructors themselves. So if you are looking for a program major in which the material is covered in a very fast pace, where not much time is allowed to understand and really learn the material, where the instruction is mostly provided by computers and not by instructors, where when you ask questions the majority of the instructors do not have the knowledge or ability to answer your questions in a timely manner, none of the course hours transfer to most universities, the curriculum seems questionable and you feel like a guinea pig for the administration to see what seems to work and what does not work, the students are invited to speak to industry but the industry itself appears to be having difficulty getting the administrators of the program to understand what they want the students to know in order to work for them, where a majority of the instructors tell the students to just do what is needed to get the degree and the actual training will be done by industry when the job is obtained (if this is the case then why do we need to go to school to learn the material, I say cut out the middleman and go where the training is provided for the job that you want), where more and more material is just piled in the classes but it is questionable as to whether anyone knows what material is appropriate to be covered in the course and the material is very overwhelming to really understand and learn, where when you talk to other students who are farther along in the program about what they learned in the program in order to get some insight on what is to be expected in future coursework those students have no real clue what they learned or are learning and are not able to provide any real answers as to what they are learning about or how the concepts and material they are being exposed to in their courses applies to the real world, where if you really want to learn anything then you have to really be able to teach yourself the content and be willing to spend countless hours at home and between classes struggling to figure out the notes you are provided with and struggling to keep up with the course you are taking while at the same time trying to juggle the other courses you are required to take, then this might be for you and if this sounds like what you really want to do in order to get an education and to try to learn what you need to learn to get a job in manufacturing if that is what you want to do where the hours are long and the pay is not proportional to the work hours then by all means sign up. As I stated, my advice is stay away from the School of Applied Technologies and any class offerings listed under that school as they are not worth the money spent to take them.
Its one of the best school in New Mexico in terms of academics.
The most frustrating thing about my school is what do books have to cost so much when we just hardly even open the books all semester long. I mean we hardly use them. Students on average spend around 500-600 hundred on books each semester. Some of us need that money to live on. That's what frustrates me more than anything.
