New Mexico State University - Dona Ana Reviews

424 reviews
All Categories
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 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.
I’m currently enrolled in Doña Ana community college, my first semester taking basic courses was a pretty amazing experience, this place is really warm and it’s stuff members were so attentive and helpful all the time. My instructors were great! Specially my English instructor, I enjoy going to class every morning, I felt part of this welcoming place.
