My sister attends UNM and she absolutely loves it! I would love to go to the same college but I'm striving to get a full-ride scholarship! The dorms are spacious and clean. Their academics are definitely top-notch and very challenging. The food is delicious and one of the best out of the other colleges. Many College students are doing several other majors, so you'll almost never come across someone with the same degree as you! I hope to go to the University of New Mexico!
Review University of New Mexico
I have really enjoyed my time here at the University of New Mexico! I am currently a first term sophomore and I plan to continue my undergraduate career here. I have met so many great people here including professors, teacher assistants, grad students and other undergraduate students just like me. I believe what makes this school unique is how friendly everyone is. The staff and students here are so outgoing and very nice. I feel very comfortable on campus. If I could start as a first time freshman all over again, I would still come to this school!
Currently, I am a freshmen at the University New Mexico. This university is great a university. The classes are great and the instructors are excellent. The campus is very nice and clean. There a lot of resources to help me with anything I need. The students are very diversity. The students are very nice. Campus life is very live all the time. This is a great college for everyone. I love being a lobo!
