New Mexico Military Institute (NMMI) is an excellent way to challenge yourself in many different ways. You will be challenged mentally, physically, academically, and much more. You will polish you time management with the strict and demanding schedule and balance your academics on top of Corps events, positions, and responsibilities. Your academics and Corps activities will be demanding as any other affiliation you have whether it be sports, SROTC, or clubs/activities. I have learned much about myself and the people around me and how I react in multiple stress level situations. I have grown as a person, leader, and academic achiever. I have kept my grades and been invited into Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) which also provides excellent scholarship opportunities for my future academic endeavors. I came to NMMI for the SROTC early commissioning program (ECP). NMMI is an excellent opportunity to challenge yourself in multiple ways.
