University of New Mexico - Taos Reviews

I have made a great amount of progress at UNM Taos. Most of my professors and classes have been very interesting, and I have done fairly well. I am currently doing only online courses and enjoy them very much.

One thing I would love to see change is for them to acquire funding to get more help for Special Needs students. I had trouble in Math and requested to be tested, but I depend on financial aid. They told me that I would have to fund my own testing. If I had the thousand that they require to get tested, then perhaps I would not need the financial aid?? There are also facility problems that need to get worked out. UNM is, overall, a great 2 year institution. Perhaps one day they can be a bonafide 4 year university. That would be great for both the Town of Taos, and the students.

I feel that my small school does the best it can. It doesn't have the most variety when it comes to classes or times, but the professors are always involved and caring. The class styles are usually very laid back but still have the structure every student needs. The class sizes are small which I feel is a plus because the instructors get to know you and have time to help everyone individually.
My school has many job fairs and career planning events. They also have many money management and stress management events, which I feel are very important for students to know about.
