These schools are similar to University of New Mexico-Main Campus in key aspects like size, setting, and academics.
83% of students
Diversity and encouragement
Lack of funding
The cost is inexpensive if you become a resident and apply for the lottery scholarship which will be with you. However, the scholarship will be gone if you receive a GPA of 2 or lower during a year.
How all the building of respective majors and teachings are very close together. It will only take you one to three minutes to get from point a to point b.
I was older than the average engineering student at UNM and had less than a good time both in general and academically.
The chemical engineering department is small. There were only about 9 students in my graduating class so not all of the required classes were offered every year.
Honestly, UNM is the friendliest place ever. you get the opportunity to expand your knowledge and extracurriculars every day since there’s always something going on on campus. Lots of cool events and cool people. One thing I don’t like is that it’s in Albuquerque where all the crimes happen, so I don’t feel safe every day, but UNM always ensures security.
I don’t like how unsafe it is, considering it residing in a city where a lot of crimes happen
I like that there is a ton of diversity at UNM, and there are lots of opportunities to innovate in the field you go into.
The university is located in a sketchy area, so you definitely need to visit before you come to get your bearings. I also think that there is a lot of city life missing from the experience because of the location, but I still would recommend UNM because of its great opportunities, academics, culture, etc.
So many professors at UNM genuinely care about their students and will find opportunities for them that are amazing. Just last week one of them sent me an internship opportunity in Washington DC! The professors care and are good at their job, which is the #1 thing for me
The dorms aren't great. I know giving everyone a bathroom is expensive, but I really don't like the communal experience
