New Mexico State University - Dona Ana Reviews

Dona Ana offers programs that can be finished in a fraction of the time and a fraction of the cost that you would at a university. The class sizes are usually twenty people. This gives you the advantage and opportunity to know you professors on a personal level. The professors are usually available to meet with. Professors have the desire for all their students to succeed and receive the help they need. The campus isn't huge which allows easy accessibility to where you need to go and on time! The campus offers a computer lab that is open to all students. The information desk is more than willing to help you with any questions you have. Your experience at a community college will be worth more educational, academical, and experiential than a university.

The campus is beautiful and it is very easy to find your way around. The professors are very friendly and are always willing to answer your questions. They are very knowledgeable about what they are teaching. The smaller class sizes are great as it allows for more interaction between the professors and the students. The tuition is reasonable but it is kind of expensive to take online courses - they charge $25 per credit hour. It is also difficult to find scholarships offered by NMSU if you didn't graduate from a New Mexico high school. I also wish there was more communication between the financial aid office. I had won a scholarship from my high school but DACC didn't tell me that I had to be taking a certain number of credit hours to get it so I had to walk in and add another class to get the issue resolved. Based on my experience, if you have an issue with financial aid you will have to walk in and speak to someone to get it resolved.
The thing I liked the most about this campus were the professors. The ones I had the second semester were great! They were very good at explaining exactly what they were teaching no matter the subject. In my opinion they need to promote better what activities are going on, on campus but other than that it’s a positive environment and I’m happy I transferred over from the main campus.
