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!

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!
The University of New Mexico is a great school overall. All of the faculty especially in the criminology and American/cultural studies departments are very dedicated to the advancement of their fields and to their student's success. Their tutoring program (C.A.P.S.) is a very good thing to get into because they not only help you with any questions you have in math, but they also help you with writing research papers, foreign language help, and science help. The law program is nationally ranked. As far as athletics goes, basketball games are the most popular. The campus is right next to Nob Hill, which is an area known for it's restaurants and is also close to downtown which is where there is a lot of clubs, restaurants, and part of historic Route 66. If I could change things about the campus I would say that there should be more club sports. Albuquerque is not the safest city in the nation, but being aware of your surroundings and staying in groups definitely helps.
