Sheena

Dona Ana Community College, locally referred to as "the branch" (branch of NMSU), is a great place to learn! All of the staff I have encountered since I started attending two years ago, have been helpful and willing to do whatever they possibly can to help all students, whether it means staying late after class or guiding them to a tutoring center. The nursing program here is wonderful and I would recommend this school to anyone going into nursing or any other health science field.

Selina

In my opinion i feel that Dona Community College has been a great place to learn, I was able to pay less on tuition. Not only that, but their were teachers who took time to help me learn what I need to learn as a student. They having led me in a way that would help me complete my goal in the future. I will recommend future students to come here.
