University of New Mexico Reviews
As a transfer student from out-of-state, I really appreciate the ease of enrolling and getting previous courses assessed for credit. Staff all over campus is nice, and the campus is beautiful! The duck pond and the library are my favorite spots on campus. The first time I walked into the quiet section, I felt like Elle Woods. Their group area is fantastic, plenty of various seating options, outlets, and dry erase boards!
The University of New Mexico is a unique campus. I have enjoyed many of the classes I've taken there, and the professors are pleasant and easy to approach. There are endless opportunities to receive tutoring, socialize with fellow students, participate in school activities, and enjoy what the university has to offer. The surrounding area is a little sketchy, and construction has made transportation near the campus difficult, but the shuttle service makes it easy to get on and off of campus without running into traffic. There are plenty of restaurants nearby, and a variety of clubs to join, many of which are run by students. Overall, the university has been a great start to continuing my education.
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!
