Eastern New Mexico University Reviews
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!
Located in eastern New Mexico, ENMU is a beautiful campus, with a diverse student body. The faculty and staff are very attentive and have always been available to help me when I contacted them. I am currently working towards completing a Masters in Education of Administration and have found everyone to be extremely helpful. If you are looking for an excellent four year university with a low tuition, located in a small town with a low crime rate, ENMU is for you!
I recently finished my freshman year of college here and I love it. The professors are understanding and are willing to work with you if you need. The campus is beautiful, and there are tons of activities on campus to do each week. I love my college experience thus far, and I highly recommend you attend!
