Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2016

I have never stepped foot into New Mexico until I had gone to college. However, the school and the whole town of Las Cruces opened its arms to me during my whole time there. The staff made me feel like they were committed to our success. I feel like the degree program in itself was designed to give students more than hands-on experiences. Apart from observations and field work, we really got to interact with the schools, district, and community at large.

Degree: Fine/Studio Arts, General
Graduation Year: 2014

Overall I believe NMSU is a beautiful campus with diverse faculty and students. However, the Art Department is in need of a serious update. At the moment the old gymnasium of the campus was turned into the Art Dept that we know of today. As an art student, with an emphasis in Photography and Graphic Design, I experienced first hand the lack of equipment and space provided for art students. While attending the university, Photography students were working with 20+ year old lighting equipment and older printers. I will say the amount of film equipment is much better than modern photography equipment. Additionally, the department always changed instructors every year, which was very frustrating. Besides the lack of newer equipment I also felt the program was not very technical or hands on, possibly because of the lack of equipment. The instructors were definitely more interested in focusing on the conceptual aspect of photography. I definitely do feel that I grew a lot in the sense of understanding and developing new concepts for photography projects but did indeed feel the lack of the technical portion, which I ended up teaching myself.

Degree: Exercise Science
Graduation Year: 2018

New Mexico State University is a wonderful school, I remember when I first came in I had to get adjusted fast because I was commuting from home but other than that I had a good time being their and the classes were pretty great as well. I would definitely recommend this to future students.

Degree: Hospitality Management
Graduation Year: 2009

Depending on the major that you choose to pursue , New Mexico State University is a great University to attend. Tuition is inexpensive, they take most transfer credits, the classes themselves are taught by professor's who are not just educated but have real world experience and have a knack for teaching. They will take an interest in your life and help you pursue any education that you seek. You will be rewarded for hard work. If you slack it they will do everything they can to help you get back on track. There is no reason that you should not be able to graduate from New Mexico State University in Las Cruces. I chose to pursue a degree in Hotel, Restaurant and Tourism Management. They have a restaurant there on campus where students can learn how to operate a 5 star restaurant. Last I heard they also built a hotel on Campus that they allow the students to run so that they can gain real world hotel management experience. The only criticism I have of New Mexico State is they did not help my gain employment nor did they follow up with me after graduation.

Degree: Music
Graduation Year: 2006

I think that college was really helpful. People get to share ideas together and teachers took on the responsibility of teaching music. We learned many unique skills.

Degree: Hospitality Management
Graduation Year: 2014

New Mexico State University offered an rewarding college experience, one that I will never forget. The campus was small enough to offer a tight knit community feel, while also being grand enough to make meeting new people very easy to do. Courses were challenging and stimulating, making for a very compelling and intriguing classroom experience. Overall, I was delighted to go to New Mexico State University and if I had the ability to travel to the past, changing the university I chose to go to, I know without a doubt I would choose New Mexico State, no contest.

Degree: Philosophy
Graduation Year: 2015

I loved every aspect of NMSU. Great student community, very supportive professors, and the fact that it is located in Las Cruces, a small college town was definitely a plus. If you are from a bigger city it will be a nice change of pace, and if you ever feel like you miss the big city, El Paso, Texas is only a half hour drive away. NMSU is great if you are getting basically any degree, and it has a lot to offer.

Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2014

NMSU has a small, but welcoming campus. The art department is unorganized and frustrating to work with, but the teachers are great and passionate about their subjects. The agricultural department on campus is outstanding in every form. Las Cruces is a small town, but full of friendly people and very welcoming to its college population. NMSU is not a school you attend for great sporting events.
