CNM is a great place to start. I gave 4 stars because I am not convinced that the counselors fully listen to my needs and I haven't learned how to get a new one. That being said, class size is small which is great. Instructors are mostly UNM professors so you get a great education. I have learned how to ask more questions because they stress that this process is for the student which means Mom can't do anything, I have to do it all. Great way to grow up fast! Campus is beautiful, parking is so so.
Review Central New Mexico Community College
I am a current student in my third semester, thus far my experience at CNM has been great. The environment is quite friendly and the Instructors are very helpful. New Facilities are being built that are "LEAD" Certified, energy efficient. There are many great programs available, I am in the Environmental Planning and Design program. The cost for New Mexico Residents is well worth the education, I look forward to completing my course of study for further studies in Environmental Science, CNM is providing a great foundation to build my education upon.
I haven't graduated from CNM just yet, however from working in the Admissions department, I have learned a little bit about what happens after you graduate. The alumni association, after CNM, allows students to connect with the community through volunteer work and service learning opportunities. It also allows you the opportunity to network through professional networking channels.

When I graduate, I will be joining this association!
