Chloe

The students at NMSU are very diverse. There are many different races, religions, sexual orientations and socio-economic representations. There are students from tons of different backgrounds that bring a balance and an understanding of something new and different to the campus community. There is no type of student that would feel out of place at this school, because of the diverse population. Most students wear casual clothing to class. The most standard outfit would be jeans and a t-shirt. However, it is hot in the Las Cruces area, so shorts are worn more time of the year than jeans. One of the really wonderful things about NMSU are that students from all types of backgrounds, beliefs and lifestyles interact every day. They clearly enjoy interacting and learning from people that are different than they are. If there were four tables in the dining hall they would be something like this: The first would have Greek Life men and women in less casual clothing laughing and talking a lot. The second would have people studying for an upcoming exam, quietly discussing concepts and asking each other study questions. The third would be a melting pot of all types of students that have come together for one reason or another to sit and chat over some lunch. The fourth would be a religious group that has planned to have lunch and talk about their week and the trials they have faced since their last weekly lunch meeting. Most students that attend NMSU are from New Mexico or the El Paso, Texas area. Financially, most students are not well off. There are a lot of students that rely completely on financial aid and scholarships to continue at school. Students are politically active and aware of the current political environment. There is a very healthy balance of left wing and right wing views that allow healthy conversation and disagreements among students. Students do not typically talk about how much they will earn one day, more what their dreams are for the future.

Lydia

We have around 18,000 undergraduate students at NMSU, describing all of them is pretty hard. We have all kinds of students here and anyone can find friends. We have many cultural, political, religious, ethnic, and diversity clubs or organizations here. Anyone can make friends here and feel comfortable we are very excepting at NMSU. There is a lot of diversity on campus, no matter how you orientate your self politically, socially, religiously and sexually you can find others with the same beliefs.

Dan

Students here are not very motivated and driven. Students are either reclusive and study freaks who aren't active on campus, or the more active students who party too much and don't carry themselves well. The school is very liberal and very hispanic. Probably 80% of the 20,000 students are hispanic if not more
