Northern New Mexico College is a small college. It is easy to find teachers if they work there full-time. Their funding has forced the school to hire only part-time teachers, who work elsewhere full-time. It is difficult locating the part-time professors. I have experienced a lack of communication with teachers in past semesters. There has been no accountability when teachers don't respond to student emails because the school needs their part-time employees.

When I first attended NNMC, I thought they put me back on track. Now, I feel they hurt a student's chance of graduating on time by only offering classes certain semesters. There has been a shift ever since their funding went down. I hope that other students can have a better experience at NNMC.

I am currently enrolled at Northern and i have to say that it is an amazing college even though it might look like a small college, it is really amazing. Professors are very helpful and the programs they offer really help and make an impact on students.
