What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a small university, WNMU provides a more intimate college experience, which I appreciate. I don't think I would like being in a lecture class with 500 people. The ratio here is 1/20 or better, and my professors provide good one-on-one attention. The school has a good technical presence, and the online student connection is very useful. Because I am a non-traditional student, my studies are my priority. I really appreciate that WNMU provides such full access, with live in-person classes, satellite classes by closed circuit television connection, and online classes. Because I live an hour from the main campus, it is important I avail myself of all connections the university has for me. I am older (55), so I am a little out of the loop as far as the social scene here at WNMU, but I am making friends, and feel a part of my college community. It's a good school, in a small town, and perfect for me.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a very unique and extraordinary place filled with many extracurricular activities and events happening. Just like any college campus, life can be a blast and memorable if one take's part in the campus life, but it can equally be awful if an individual is a recluse and does not partake in socializing or activities. It has great class sizes and awesome faculty. The place is in a small town filled with culture and diversity.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Western New Mexico University is located in a small town named Silver City, NM. Silver City is unique due to its history and agriculture within the area. The university itself is small and built into a hill making walks from class to class a workout. Class sizes range from 19 to 30 students max per class creating a welcoming environment and allowing a lot of student to teacher interaction. But New Mexico is a poor state so the cost has gon up and there is not a lot of opportunity for far scholarships.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe this is a wonderful university, it has great features! Although, it is complicated to get certain help when needed. You have access to all the learning material that a college student needs. The athletic groups are always a nice break from classes to go watch and cheer for our school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

WNMU is a great school the academics are amazing!!!! Class sizes are perfect. You will definitely get to know your professors which is the best. However, the environment off campus is pretty boring if you're a city person. If you love the outdoors this place is truly for you!!!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Western New Mexico University is a great school. Everyone is very friendly and there are plenty of activities to part take in. The instructors do everything they need to in order to help students succeed. Campus life is great it is a short walk from your dorm to campus.

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

Our class sizes are very small so there is a lot of one on one time with the professors. Additionally we have one of the highest populations of professors with PhDs and Doctorates in the nation at this school.

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

I would tell myself to break up with the girl I was dating at the time I came to college. She took up way to much of my time and I allowed myself to fall very far behind on my course work resulting in my failing several classes and needing to take a year away from school. I would also tell myself not to fall into the stigma that a lot of college students do and walk away from my faith the way I did. Last but not least, I would tell myself to play guitar far more often than I did. I needed the practice.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish that I had known some of the rules that the campus lays down.

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

While I have attended college I have realized what is truly important to me and what is important for my future, I have taken a few classes in different areas and have explored things that I had never considered before and I have realized that there is more than what I first thought out there that I can attempt to grab. I have changed my major several times but in all of that, I know that attending college is important for me as the first person in my family to attend college, I want to get out there and be something more than just someone who works at the local food mart and especially something more than just a stay-at-home mom. I am shaping my future at college, I am taking control of my life and becoming something greater than I was before, and I can only hope that college is as important to other young people as it is to me.
