What is your overall opinion of this school?

So far pretty good. While every big school has its challenges, pros, cons what have you. The University of New Mexico is affordable and its programs are relatively high level depending on the program. Struggling to pay? The opportunities for scholarships are wide and diverse giving aid to high level academic achievers and those in need of a stepping stone to success.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UNM is overall a good college. If you get yourself involved with groups and talk to your professors, you can accomplish a lot and many professors will be there for you. I can speak most definitively for the earth and planetary sciences department of which I am a part. I have only found the people in my department, varying from student to professor and everywhere in between, to be incredibly willing to help with anything they can and to be friendly.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There has to be a money scandal going in at this school. They raised prices on exchange student and the art of science program to fund the rest of the schools debt. Professors are still not paid enough for what they do and many are let go for the sake of something they cannot explain.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of New Mexico is a good school with lots of students that like to get involved. Classes are interesting and an easy way to make friends. Overall it's a really good school with many options to study and activities to get involved in. There are some things that could definitely use improvement like the facilities and certain teacher's teaching methods but other than that UNM is a very nice school to attend.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of New Mexico has the most diverse, unique, and amazing campus community I have ever been a part of. Attending this college has given me the opportunity to grow and interact with people from around the world and to gain new perspectives, and I think this is the best part. The academics, extracurricular opportunities, and attention to student needs is outstanding. I would recommend the University of New Mexico to everyone!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UNM is a place close to home and it has a great availability of majors that anyone can be interested in. There are great opportunities to grow as a person and friendships develop easily. The duck pond weather is great during the spring and fall and there's plenty of places to hangout and study. There are often events held to motivate students or help them destress by having "cuddle a canine" days near finals week, it's awesome!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UNM's main campus has many positives such as the proximity that students have to classes if they live on campus and the strong community UNM has as a whole. The negative parts of UNM's main campus is the area it is in and the high crime rate near the campus. The proximity to homeless people and drugs makes campus feel unsafe at times but that is only felt when walking near the outside or on the outside of the campus. If a student where to stay inside main campus the safety due to the community established makes you forget about what goes on outside of it. Outside of campus safety academics are important to the students and faculty of the school and the libraries are usually packed full of students on the weekends as well as the student tutoring programs.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Studying at UNM and living in Albuquerque has given me the opportunity to see UNM grow over the course of roughly a decade. Having that been said, I believe that UNM provides a standard of teaching for its students across disciplines that prepares students for entering the work force in whatever field they enter. The facilities and staff over the years, as well as the funded research, has been given greater priority when it comes to spending and has translated as an investment into the students. At UNM, people who want to be competitive nationally will need to be aggressive in their pursuit for better career opportunities but connections can be made. UNM's greatest asset is its global connections with universities abroad and its diverse population. These yield healthy and open-minded discussions around moving forward as a society and nation when taking into account the information from various perspectives around the globe. I can say that UNM is accessible to many financially and while this indirectly forces the university to drop its otherwise higher teaching standards, it enables more people to improve their lives and look beyond the corner where they grew up. UNM is truly a global university for those from Burque and elsewhere.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of New Mexico-Main Campus (UNM) is what I like to think of as a campus in progress. New Mexico has never been ranked highly for its academics but UNM is proving to come out of the shadows a bit. It now offers great engineering, nursing, architecture and arts programs with a constantly evolving student life. Compared to other colleges UNM offers reasonable tuition rates that encourage people to try to learn rather than turning them away because it is too expensive. Overall, it is growing and is surrounded by historical areas of New Mexico , which gives rise to a rather charming atmosphere. I have found UNM to be an exceptional place to learn and to get to know wonderful people while having inspiring discussions and interactions. I would recommend UNM to a friend... or 50!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of New Mexico campus is beautiful, with lots of trees, flowers, and grassy areas, a duck pond with benches around the perimeter, and many other beautiful and relaxing places to spend your time during any season of the year. There are also many libraries across campus that have basically everything you could need to study: a limited number textbooks on library loan (so you don't technically have to buy them), comfortable chairs with desks to study at (or, if you prefer, study stations with treadmills so that you can get those steps in while you study), individual and group study rooms, and at Zimmerman library, there is even a Starbucks Coffee right on the first floor, so you can conveniently go get a refill and get right back to studying. The dorms and dining hall are within about a ten to fifteen-minute walking distance of the buildings furthest away from them, and there are many other places to eat in the Student Union Building (such as Subway, Blake's Lotaburger, Satellite Coffee, Mandalay Oriental Cuisine, and others). There is also a convenience store on the first floor of the Student Union Building where you can get essentials like toothbrushes, toothpaste, bamdaids, an aspirin or advil, and extra pens and pencils. If you live off campus and want to bring your lunch, there are microwaves in Mitchell and Dane Smith halls for use by students. There is also a Student Health centre which provides urgent care, vaccinations, and even therapy, and there is a pharmacy on the second floor of their building. Wifi is a bit spotty on campus, but if you are inside or very close to a building, the wifi should work fine. The only thing I would caution about: Albuquerque can be dangerous at night, so it is a good idea to avoid walking off campus after dark. Other than that, The University of New Mexico provides a great academic environment and a wide variety of different subjects to major in, and overall, I would reccommend coming here for your education.
