From University of New Mexico

Each of us defines all of us. We are a community of unique perspectives embracing our differences. We are a culture of contrast, not a contrast of cultures. Unafraid to let our colors run and blend and let the very things that divide us become the things that unite us. So we can create, collect and spread knowledge – about everything from nuclear engineering and fine art to enzymatic fuel cells, revolutionary medicine and forensic accounting. What makes us different makes us strong.

    I really like coming to UNM. The campus is very beautiful and there is always people willing to help and answer any questions you may have. They offer a variety of classes over various different subjects, and there is online courses too. There are a lot of places to study, whether they be group study or solo, places to get food and hangout with friends, Popejoy if you'd like to catch a play, and easy access to restaurants and stores that aren't on campus, but right across the street. There are also plenty of student organizations and resource centers to get involved with!

    I loved my time at UNM! While the bureaucracy is difficult to deal with, it is the most difficult part of the whole process. Our professors are delightful! They have a vested interest in their students' development and always go above and beyond to ensure we turn out well. The classes are interesting, plentiful, and take place on a great campus. Albuquerque is a fantastic city in which to live -- it has a rich and diverse culture well worth getting to know!
    So far, I have loved my experience in Albuquerque! The professors that have taught me have always been respectful and passionate about their respective subjects. I have found friends through different school events, and the campus is a great skate spot. The only negative I have seen so far is that the campus is located on Central, and Central is a dangerous street at night. Luckily, campus police are available every hour of the day to escort you.
