Eastern New Mexico University Reviews
I was a freshman at Eastern New Mexico Unitversity. I love the campus so much! It is a very friendly campus, and not to mention a small school. The teachers care about you and help you with late assignments. Plus ENMU is affordable they will work with you money wise which is pretty incredible. I was really when i first started going, but i made friends pretty easy. ENMU is the top campus in New Mexico that is safe. Everyone on that campus cares about you. I am very glad i made the decision to go there. I highly recommend ENMU it is a great school to get a degree.
I started off very successful and able to manage my two classes very well. I scored high and everything was fine. For the following 4 classes after that everything changed. I had teachers that were not willing to answer questions in a timely manner, one teacher who claimed I never took a Test - when I certainly did, technical glitches, and was forced to fight my way through unfair grading through appeals that were denied. Absolutely no help when you need it. If you're comfortable with online school and need no help at all, then this is for you. If you rely on teachers to teach and knowledge to be shared, then I would go somewhere else. I've wasted money on this school and cannot get that back. They have ZERO understanding and will NOT work with you AT ALL.
I love it at Eastern! I love how the town of Portales is a small college based town, so it is easy to live here and go to school. You have small sized classes which help and the professors get to know each of their students, this has helped me do well in classes and be comfortable getting help when I need it. Not only is the classroom environment great, the administration and students are very friendly and welcoming. I would change how unhelpful advisors are.
