New Mexico State University is really something that future college students should look into. There is so many things to do and things to see its overwhelming. The people at NMSU are always so friendly and willing to help you with what ever you need. The professors are very helpful and encourage one on one communication with you so you truly get the education that you deserve and paying for. Also, the tuition in itself is FANTASTIC! For only $3,500.00 a semester for in state tuition...thats truly a blessing.
Review New Mexico State University
We do have many different flyers around campus discussing these type of issues and every now and then we have a campus police officer ride around. In addition we also have the Pete's Pickup which a great resource when your on campus late Sunday through Thursday. However; on the weekends those services are not offered. If you work late on campus you have no choice but to walk up by yourself. In many campuses in California they have help buttons throughout the whole campus and I believe that would benefit our campus if we were able to install these around campus as well. Lastly, we lack in the amount of cameras around campus. Many buildings don't have them inside and more importantly there are almost none outside which is where many assaults and confrontations occur!
The set up of NMSU is really great! Coming from a large city, although Las Cruces is a smaller city, it is such a great place to be at. We all know big cities have much more to do but with NMSU campus, they provide so many options and events for students for free. With such great events, there are really nice and gregarious people behind it all. I really could not have chosen a better school for me.
