The New Mexico Junior College is a great starter college. If you don't know what your major is yet, it is a great and affordable place to get your general education. The academics will likely transfer to a four year university. They have really great professors and it is a great bang for your buck school. The campus is really nice and the dorms are fairly new. They were built a few years ago and still look new inside and out. New Mexico Junior College would be a great school if you want a great education for a fraction of the price.

I'm currently sophomore, international student at New mexico junior college. My experience so far at NMJC is great. Far from home NMJC has been my second home. I have learnt and experienced alot either through my fellow colleagues, professors or any other person within the college.
New Mexico Junior College is the best school that anyone can attend. The cost to attend is cheap and fair. At the NMJC they have tons of activities to do that are fun and safe for every student to attend. New Mexico Junior College has the best sports team in New Mexico. The campus at the college is also spacious. The rooms are not crowded and the rooms are nice. The professors are also very nice and they care a lot about their students.
