Great university! A sort of hidden gem. Fantastic anthropology program, the entire department is virtually flawless. The campus is well maintained with some beautiful buildings. It's difficult to come by an unfriendly person in the entire town. Only complaints are that it's in middle-of-nowhere, bible-belt New Mexico, and the campus food could due with some improvements. I'm so happy I chose Eastern! The small campus and welcoming atmosphere are perfect if that's what you're looking for!

My first year of college and I felt more than welcomed. I felt like I was visiting family! The professors and faculty in every building and encounter were more than helpful and very kind. They helped me with any question or any confusion. Though some classes were harder than others, I could ask any questions at given times and be granted with a sense of comfort and understanding. I really loved the feel of campus and the helpful hands of the people around me, faculty or friend.
I enjoy the friendly atmosphere of Eastern New Mexico University. It is a small school, therefore, you connect more personally with the professors. I myself have connected with many of the professors, and when you connect with a professor the information that they are providing begins to just flow through your mind, it becomes very easily retainable, and makes the entire college experience just that much more awesome. I have learned a vast amount of knowledge from Eastern New Mexico University, and it doesn't show any signs of letting up. I love this school.
