I have thoroughly enjoyed the coursework and lectures so far. There has been a lot of new material to grasp. This comes easily due to the knowledgable professors I get to work with. I also appreciate, as an online student, how readily available the instructers are.
I really enjoy the small class sizes. The professors are easily accessible. There are so many resources to help make sure you succeed. Free access to tutors, counseling, career services, etc. There are so many great and helpful environments on and around campus. And the student organizations are all warm and welcoming. You will make new friends who will help you succeed in school and life.
I love it so much. Everyone is really nice and I enjoy being a student there. The professors are extremely informative, and pretty much always available when I need them. I am a first generation college student so I was pretty scared going into this whole thing. Everyone made me feel welcome and I immediately thought of this as my home away from home.
Eastern New Mexico University in Portales is fantastic. The small class sizes enhances the already amazing learning environment. The small population of the school over all creates a real sense of community which makes me feel safe and at home. I do no think that there is a better college in the state of New Mexico.

Money is precious, don't spend it wildly anymore. Time is important and dropping classes shouldn't be an option. Stay focused on the goal and don't let past experiences with senioritis destroy your work ethic. Also, relationships aren't the most important thing in the world. You're going to college for your education, to futher your life and persue your goals, don't let the relationships be a big deal, if they happen, they happen, but if not... Don't worry about it. And most importantly, find a good destressing technique outside of smoking. You'll need it.
What I would need for classes.
Students who are committed and dedicated to hard work should attend ENMU. There is phenomenal support from professors and administration for those who are serious about obtaining a higher education. The resources are abundant and a supportive student base is present. Scholarships and recognition are encouraged as is participation in educational activities. I would highly recommend ENMU!
Could have some better facilities. Cafeteria food could be better.
I tell my friends about the fun events and how much fun I have when I go.
The best thing about my school is the friendly atmosphere. Professors truly care about your success as a student, and they are always available to help!
Students who are interested in the social aspect of college should not attend ENMU. This is a school that requires hard work and dedication to education and those who choose otherwise will be unsuccessful. Students wishing to register to receive the financial aid and drop classes once it is received are not advised to attend ENMU. The school is serious about education and makes every effort to accommodate those who are dedicated to achieving the knowledge and strength necessary to be successful in life.
Discussing important issues (such as student loans, financial aid, transfers, and re-entry) with anyone is near to impossible. I have been given the run-around time and time again. One of the reasons I'm still here is because I never want to have to deal with that kind of horror again.
A very diverse group who study the same subject.
This is a friendly campus, with a very diverse student body. The professors are readily accessible and willing to help any student that is willing to work. We have many international students which gives you a chance to meet and experience many cultures and contibutes to a more tolerent attitude. Classes are small and we presented and students are encouraged to go beyond what is presented and learn more about the subject. the campus is small, friendly, and safe.
This school has a spirt to it that none of the other schools that I looked at did. It had a sense of family-like community but still had a fair amount of people that the social strata was still diverse.
Eastern is a small school with all the activites and services of a large campus.
The academics here range from different ones. I love how some of the professors are really concerned about you, and will email you and talk to you to help you get on track if you need it. My favorite class right now would have to be ED, only because this is like an overview of what is expected to be as an teacher in the USA. This class empowers me to be a better me everyday, and challenges me to step out the box. One thing I like most about this school, concerning the academics is the SI sessions. This is a point of the day, where you have time to get taught by other students who have no troubles in the class you are having trouble in. In going to this, it helps boost up your grade if you are failing.
There are a lot of activities going on at ENC. But the ones that I currently stand on are
JUMP DRAMA: this is a small theatre group, which has tours around the BOSTON area. They primarly focus on giving plays and smalls skits that are very biblical and christian based.
GOSPEL CHOIR: although this is a .5 credit class, this is not just a time where you come and sing gospel songs. But it is a chance for you to have devotion time, with the peers you conversate on a day to day bases, even with peers you don't really talk to. The choir goes on tours. We recently came back from VA/DC which was imply amazaing. We got a chance to not only minister in song, but brighten some ones day and that to me is always a plus. If I can make you happy when you find all reason to be sad then I have done my job as a christian.
There are alot more clubs that are very exciting to be apart of and it is a great way for you to become more social.
I go to ENC, this is my first year. This school is known for being a christian - based college. Which focus on stregthen your faith, as well as provide you with a good education to succed in life. What I like about this school is, although it is small you get to meet great and exciting new people. As well as learn about who they really are and their cultures. The only thing I would change in my school, would have to be the meal system. It is edible but I feel it can be a little better than what is it. When I express where I go to school people tend to ask where is this school located, but after I give them details they are happy about my choice. While being on campus, besides my dorm room. I love to spend time in the gym, the newly - remolded hall which was recently named "Hebrews" which came straight from the bible. I also love to hang in the Spange parlor, it is a good feeling to be around other people who are trying to become something in life. The adminstration is well structured. For every dorm there is a RA and a RD who are very nice and approachable. There is alot of school pride, when students come together for home sports game. That is the best time to see students, loving the school besides the small clubs that they are on. Overall this is a good school the only thing people would probally complain about is the school being too costly and the food. Other than that, you are expected to have a great time at this school.
