What is your overall opinion of this school?

It’s a good school, could invest in better security, lots of terrible things happen at or near campus. Most of the instructors I have had, take the time to teach as well as to learn from the students. Sometimes some instructors are not the greatest but that’s the good thing about having different instructors teaching the same course, and you can also mix online classes with face to face classes that work better with whatever is going on in your personal life. I have found that very useful considering I am a full time employee and student. It would also be nice if they offered more general scholarships not toward freshman year. I have looked for many scholarships towards my ethnicity and couldn’t really find any that UNM offers.

I love the campus, but they could do with redoing some of the older buildings. Other than that its great. The food is great, there's a pretty great variety of different foods you can choose, from Mexican food, to chicken, burgers, or Chinese food.

I went to UNM my first year of college and it was an amazing experience for me. Everyone was always involved and they had plenty of events every week. I was always doing something and Albuquerque had plenty of things to do in general. It was a long and memorable experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The university is a great place to study to obtain your degree. The university has an open campus and attracts many visitors throughout the day as well as being very diverse with their students. There are so many people from far places that I've met that are attending the university, with the wide range in diversity it makes students feel comfortable. As well as there are many great places around the campus to study, grab a bite to eat, or even just to spend time with colleagues and friends. The campus provides many great opportunities for their students like scholarships, on-campus jobs to even providing tutoring for students who may be struggling with various classes. On campus there are various organizations to join like sororities and fraternities, academic clubs and clubs based around extra curricular activities. The activities center sets up events like movie nights, trivia nights, study nights, etc., to gain the involvement of the student life, where you'll meet and make some of the greatest friends and colleagues. The professors are very passionate about their jobs and helping with their student's success, where some professors will take time out of their day and do either group study sessions or one on one sessions to help with the material.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it here. There are some things that can be better as with everywhere you go but there is always someone willing to help you out here and want you to learn and get ahead. I'm technically still a student because I am returning to UNM but I am also an Alumni. I attended UNM for 6 years and I have 2 Bachelors degrees. I just can't stop going back because of how easy everyone makes going to school here. I also worked on campus in the library and love the atmosphere of people wanting to learn. It's the perfect place to start and get back into your schooling experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of New Mexico offers a fantastic education in a variety of fields. It holds an amazing psychology program and I've heard wonders about its medical school. UNM also appreciates the arts, and houses quality photography and music classes. Overall, the University offers a good education at a relatively cheaper price. While not the best University, it definitely competes in the western states.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There are pockets of Intelligence but they are few and far between... The One Stop on campus in particular is a big joke on campus. It may be a place to do everything but you will need to go there several times to have even the smallest thing for registration, admission or financial aide to be addressed. When you want to know where the actual office is they will not tell you but tell you to return at least three times with another piece of paper to fill out by the professor that just signed the last two papers required. And after you do all that, the computer spits more nonrelevant things on your record, putting holds on your account to start the process again. None of the departments within the college communicate with each other and blame the student for the their lack of organization. I know better but I feel for incoming freshman who give up. I will be transferring in the fall. It will take longer and be more expensive and I'm not sure how I will manage but it should have more time to pursue the course knowledge and more pleasant than waiting in a line for hours on end to be told there's another paper to fill out. The Museum Studies program especially is unorganized and lies to students to look like they have the numbers for more monies... Making all sorts of promises like scholarships, etc. when they don't even exist. I can't wait til this fall to attend a college that actually called me on the phone to welcome me into their program, answers my questions in a couple of days and does everything to assist me in my degree goals.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Full of culture and diversity. Teachers are proud of their fail rates. Not many students from out of state, yet a large amount of students from Essex , England and Australia. Campus housing sucks, but you will meet many friends there, Casa’s is expensive but nice, you will NOT make friends there. Sororities are huge. Kappa’s run the campus but are mean. Pi phis are nicer but have a bad rep in the sorority community . Frats are also popular. Pikes have a reputation about drugging women. I went to a party of their’s and they told me they’d let the whole group in but the guys would have to wait longer. After half an hour , the guys told us the they were refused entry because they only wanted girls, then they made it hard for us to leave. The university is in the worst part of town, so never walk around alone especially at night. Your car might get stolen. Most professors are apathetic about what they teach and never seem to be in their offices during office hours. Also it was cheaper to join a sorority and live in their sorority house than live on campus and be forced to pay for the meal plan as a freshman. But you can get out of having the expensive meal plan if you get your food allergies documented

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of New Mexico is a very spacious campus. Their main major degree programs mainly consist of health science degrees like doctors. There are many engineers on campus. There are not many majors available for plant sciences. The lack of plant science majors makes me want to transfer to New Mexico State University. The campus culture is very diverse and it is hard to find similar cohorts with the same interests and degree.
