New Mexico State University Graduate Reviews

16 reviews
This university is very good. The professors are very kind, and open to meeting with you. I would say that the graduate courses are intense, and require more effort and time than advertised. The financial aid office and dispersements are not always on time, and not always accurate with current student details. The campus offers a free shuttle service, and free parking areas that are extremely helpful to students trying to save money and get around.

New Mexico State university is overall a good college, if you are a small town individual. If you are from the city, then it will take a while to become adjusted. The city grows on you. It is nice to be able to make it to your destinations within 15 minutes. The student life offers good organizations. The campus is not super overwhelming in size. I would like for the scholarships opportunities to be not as selective. In other words, you must fit a certain criteria. If you are a native, then this is the college for you.
Overall, NMSU is a good college. I have an encountered a few minor setbacks, financially. I am an out of state student. Therefore, scholarship opportunities are not as plentiful versus in-state students. NMSU is unique due to the location , friendliness of the staff, and campus diversity. My only wish is that NMSU would acknowledge out of state students more academically and financially.
