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.

Degree: Child Development
Graduation Year: 1995

Although NMSU has a reputation as a party school, and I did my share of that, the academics were rigorous. NMSU is not as prestigious as places like Carnegie Mellon, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Rice, or Stanford, but I was taught by people who got their degrees from all those places. When I went into a PhD program, I was way ahead of my peers, even those with bachelor's degrees from much more prestigious institutions. It wasn't that I was smart, it was that I had been rigorously taught by faculty determined to match the best standards of the universities they had come from. Of course this was 20 years ago and the place has changed quite a bit, but for the money NMSU remains one of the best values in the US. I was stuck there because I was a NM resident and couldn't afford to go out of state, but in retrospect I'm glad I was. If I had gone to UCLA or Columbia or any of the other schools I wanted to go to, I never would have had the opportunity to interact with professors the way I did at NMSU. I learned that lesson when I did a post-doc at a prestigious research university and discovered that even at the post-doc level those high and mighty famous professors find interacting with the peons to be a waste of precious reputation-building time. Most of them barely interacted with their own graduate students, much less undergrads. At NMSU I regularly talked with professors about my interests, and most of them were encouraging, even though I was a less than stellar student at the time.
