Describe the students at your school.

Everyone at my school does not seem to care about the campus and its activities. They just show up for class and to socialize. Many of them are on scholarship, so they tend to care less about the classes they are taking because it is free.

My parents allowed me two choices for school, UNM and NMSU. UNM is closer to where they live, so thats why I choose it.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Visit as many campuses as possible, and ask students questions about the social life. Is there a high consumption of alcohol and drug use. Do you like your professors. What is the most common major at the school.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

The University of New Mexico is somewhat liberal, but somewhat friendly as well; and UNM is active, individualistic, musical, artistic, architectually diverse, confusing and unorganized at times.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Visit various colleges that you are interested in and schedule meetings with people in the college you are interested in.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

Liberalism! Many teachers express their views, which is fine, but then they tear up others veiws. Some teachers even grade off on assignments because they don't agree with the students veiw points.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

When choosing a school a student should take into account what is important to them. For example, family is a big part of my life so I chose to stay in state and I would suggest that for any student who feels the same. If a student is offered a athletic scholarship I would suggest they take it or they might regret it! For someone wants to experience something new and exciting I would suggest an out of state school. Areas that interest the student should be researched, including universities in that area! Once a school is found and the semester starts the student has to remember they are there to receive the best education possible and while social functions are always fun, students have to stay on top of their school work. After students get the school part done I definitely suggest getting involved in clubs and events. Being involved in other areas than just the classroom is a way to relax, have fun, and get away from the homework.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

There isn't really a certain person that should not attent this school. It is a very diverse school .

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

It doesn't matter where you go to college, provided there are two things. First, the college needs to offer what you want to study. Second, you need to be able to find out who you, the real you, really is.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

It all starts the junior year of a students high school carrer. That year is the year students should really be looking at different colleges they want to go and look at the programs they offer, the courses they offer, quality of the school and professors, and cost of the school. They should take their ACT/SAT during their junior and senior year and by their senior year they should have narrowed their college choices down to 1 or 2 by then and start working on the application process, interview with school representatives and focus on graduating and maintaining a good GPA. Once a student is in college they should take every opportunity to get involved on campus and form study groups and interract with new students to make new friends. All of these are the best ways to make the most out of the college experience

What's unique about your campus?

I consider the social life and the quality of the professors the best things about my school. Ever since i've been an this school i've made alot of new friends , got active with school activities and now i am an employee at the school. I like the quality of the professors because they really care about the students learning and want to help them achieve their goals and they are there for the students whenever they need help.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

i brag about the social life to my friends. Because it is a big school with alot of people. You literally can find people everywhere you go into this campus. Most people are friendly too which is a plus for me. It is very easy to make new friends here and to get involved on campus.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Look at the programs that are offered for the field of study you would want to go into. If moving into a dorm, make sure you are comfortable with who you live with because it can cause many problems with a roommate you are not comfortable with.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

I see many different kinds of students so I would say that any kind of person could attend this school.

What's unique about your campus?

The adivisors for each set of majors because you deal with someone directly with the major you want rather than an adivisor that has to deal with every student and every major.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are the most diverse, interesting, intelligent, engaged, accepting, happy, and supportive group of young adults I have had the pleasure of meeting.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

There is so much diversity and richness in culture... the people here are so friendly, accepting, and willing to try new things. They love the way New Mexico is different. The university offers great financial aid based both on necessity and merit and there is no lack of opportunities for a student. Dreams are within easy reach. The professors care about you and about their realm of expertise, and are all eager to share their own experiences and make goals a reality for their students. The campus is beautiful, close to breathtaking mountains and a wealth of outdoor activities.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would tell both the student and the parent that the right university is not always the one that works you the hardest, has the most recognizable name, or the highest price tag. A university experience is a beautiful thing, a time in one?s life where they have the freedom to choose and mold who they want to be, where they are given the gift of an education, where they will laugh and cry with friends who will last a lifetime... they will learn more than mathematics or english, they will learn about cultures, people, independence, realities of life ... they will recieve an unparalleled opportunity to make an impact on the world in their way, whether it be big or small. Choosing a university should take into account the passions of the student... it should be a place where dreams can be realized, where futures will be determined by the first unaided steps down a unique path. Join clubs, meet people, get involved in sports, write an article for the paper... but above all, do not be afraid to achieve the things you love, because hestitation means they will be snatched away by those without fear. Anything is Possible!
