What is your overall opinion of this school?

Excellent community college. Been a student since 2015, getting my second Associates degree here this fall and just completed a Marketing certificate in the fall of 2019. I've never attended any other school but CNM hits every mark for me, therefore, I've never had to leave. I love being in a cultural environment where we're all here for each other no matter where you come from (ghetto, reservation, projects, incarceration, homelessness, disabled, religion-oriented, LGBTQ+, foreign student) and CNM does this. When tensions were high during the presidential election, the CNM president sent out an email to ALL students and employees a few years ago saying CNM welcomes everyone no matter what age, race, ethnic background, or religion you come from. I felt very proud and saved that email. It was nice to be attending a school where the President sent out an email making everyone feel comfortable, welcome, and safe. I have never seen a hate crime at CNM in all my years attending. We all make friends with each other no matter what culture or religion you practice. Every teacher I've had made sure to make it aware at the beginning of the semester, that if you have a disability just let them know and they can accommodate you. Pros: Security makes sure to send out an email to the entire school when something unsafe has happened immediately. They want us to be aware of what is going on at campus at all times so we can be on the lookout for ourselves as well as others. The school is "green" oriented, lots of study areas, security is always patrolling campus, the classes are never over 30ish students - on average it's about 20-25, the admissions/school staff are always helpful and make you feel welcome and appreciated, the school technology is on par and up to date for students, LGBTQ+ friendly, Theatre & Arts opportunities, partnership with Facebook in the Digital Marketing Certificate and they try their best to help the local Native American CNM students with more opportunities. Almost every month CNM hosts job /internship fairs, university recruiting fairs, student employment fairs, and annual celebrations when the holidays come around. CNM recently built in some school books with tuition, so you sign up for a class and you pay a higher price upfront but the book is included once you start class, and don't have to worry about getting the right book or it shipping in time. As of right now this mainly happens with the STEM/lab classes. Most of the professors are passionate about their jobs, but there are also always the ones who just need a paycheck and treat it as such but that is with any job or profession. Tutoring is available 6 days a week. The career job connections services are available to you as a student and for a lifetime if you are a graduate from CNM. They helped me get my first internship, and build my resume from scratch. They even offered to help me write scholarship essays; this service is a secret treasure at CNM no one really takes advantage of. Cons: General Admission Parking is scarce at certain times of the day. Certain study areas could use more outlets for laptops/electronics. Marketing for events that are happening at the school could be better (sometimes you don't know until the event is happening until the day of). Not enough outdoor-friendly studying areas. They mainly have benches all around campus but almost 0 tables or shady areas for you to enjoy the outdoors. And the study areas that are near the windows are few and far between and don’t usually have outlets and/or tables. The lab courses are kind of perplexing; the lab classes are about 4 hours long yet they are only worth 1 credit hour. I love CNM because it has diversity and it’s a “big” small community college with around 20k enrolled students. People here want to better themselves no matter what background they come from and it’s inspiring for me. Sure it has it’s cons but the benefits outshine them greatly.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school lacks structural integrity. The communication issues among the departments is very poor, and these issues not only entitle communication with other departments, but communication among the same department isn't as common as one might hope when being a student that needs help. The school set up a voice automated system, so if you're trying to communicate with a human you shall be on the phone for at least 15 minutes before you receive human contact. If you want to receive help from Financial Aid, speak to a supervisor or manager because they will actually guide and help direct you to the right people. Otherwise you will find yourself wasting time running around like a headless chicken. This school also isn't great to attend as an out of state student, because you will struggle a lot. Not only because of your full time schedule, but also because you will be hustling harder than an average school to barely make the deadlines for needed scholarships. And if you're thinking, fine I'll get a loan, you won't get that much. At max with subsidized and unsubsidized loans combined you will accrue a mere $2,000. Also this school is pure textbook oriented, meaning you will spend most classes remembering a textbook. Know that you shall be able to waive your out of state fees by getting a full-time job. That is the only way to not have to pay out of state tuition, so if say for instance that you have a heart condition, then you are out of luck fee wise. The school lacks actual resources for a general student. So, unless you are a local student with low expectation, I'd suggest attending a different school. The teachers are a 50/50 on responding to their email, which is their preferred method of communication. I will also state that if you want to be a successful student who goes to office hours, that you will have a 50/50 chance that the teacher even goes to his/her office hours, I would give this school a 0 if I could because they have designed this system to make it harder for a student to obtain what is needed, to make a formal complaint, as well as being able to engage actively with the teacher not always in class, but especially out of class, also known as office hours.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I've found CNM to be an extremely rewarding first step in my college journey! The teachers I've had have been dedicated to the students, the class sizes are large enough for good conversations but small enough that everyone feels seen by the teacher, and the price is amazing. I've paid around a thousand each semester for tuition, fees, and required books. A cool thing about CNM is that a lot of the teachers also work at UNM! You're getting a lot of the same stuff with a smaller class size and less cost! The only downside is that there isn't any on campus living and only convenience store type food available. Despite the negatives, I highly recommend starting your college journey at CNM!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This community college is extremely affordable while still offering a good education. The professors are great and the class sizes are decent. The Main Campus is easy to navigate. Central New Mexico Community college is a great option for pursuing an associate's degree of certificate because it is so affordable. Many of my peers talk about how hands-on every program and the in-depth experience that is received.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Central New Mexico Community College is a very hands-on place to learn your basics before transferring into a four-year university. The class sizes are small and the instructors provide a very hands-on approach to learning. The school uses an online system called Blackboard that helps deliver lots of extra tools for each student to succeed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

CNMCC Main Campus is very, very educational and equipped to support student's needs, including a fantastic breakfast burrito stand in the morning hours. The bookstores are very nice, and they do a "price match" where students can receive discounts on books and other resources. The professors are dynamic, and I have liked all of them except 2 of them. Annie Uhring, Brian Burkhart, Holly Hitzmann, Thomas James, Barbara Bates, and Wally Cates are some of my favorites, even though most of them have their unique and awesome qualities. Marie Bok is great, too. The staff in the main building that assist with academic advisements and financial aid are very, very friendly and helpful. Chris Cavazos, dean of students, is pleasant and very fair with the student body!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Central New Mexico provides a good education for a more affordable price than big universities. It has a safe campus that students can explore and feel free to express their opinions and actually discuss them. There unfortunately isn’t on campus living but there are options around the area for students to live if they choose to.
