New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (2)
New Mexico Tech is and was the best decision I ever made for my education. The campus is beautiful and there is an abundance of things to do, even if the town of Socorro, NM is small. The class sizes are small and the professors really want to see you succeed. The classes can be tough, but there are ample opportunities to get help when needed. Most departments have free tutoring and even the professors will sit down with you to make sure you understand the material. In addition to a top notch education, New Mexico Tech offers varying levels of scholarships and will stack scholarships, meaning that if you receive more than one scholarship, you can use all of them towards your education. Finally, the average student at New Mexico Tech, at least when I attended, was slightly quirky and nerdy. In sharp contrast to my high school days, I finally felt like I fit right in.
Very good education. Low tuition cost. Small classes and the professors are easy to contact with questions generally. It's a tech school so if you go for a non tech degree you will still have high math prerequisites. Small campus, easy to get around. Small outdoorsy type of town. There are quite a bit of activities put on by school groups so you can stay busy with those as well as clubs.
