Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2014

The University of New Mexico is a great school for some specialties. If you are a New Mexico resident, you cannot beat the price. I am proud of UNM for what it has accomplished, but this is not a school I would travel from out of state to attend. I really wish there had been more done to connect me with outside companies (other than just the occasional job fair). I also do not think the advisement is worth any positive notes. There were many times I would hear one thing from one person, and the exact opposite from another person. The campus itself is not too big, many buildings are being renovated because of age, but overall a pretty clean and safe campus.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2015

The advisement at this university is not the best for all departments, but if you have a true interest in research it is a good university to decide in which to enroll. Many students have progressed to prestigious graduate schools after completing their degrees here and many more are published across multiple academic journals.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

Attending the University of New Mexico was such a great experience. I earned scholarships such as the Lottery which helped in taking off the stress of paying for school. I can't complain about one professor there. The Psychology department is full of intelligent and caring professors who have had a lot of experience in their field before teaching. As I got closer to graduating, I found a group of the same people in each of my higher-leveled courses, and they were all nice and into being there to learn and succeed. List of some of the best courses I've taken with highly recommended professors by their last names: Gender in Communication (E), Greek Mythology (C), Multicultural Communication (E), Infant Development (Wi), Drugs and Behavior (J), Psychology of Personality (A), and Positive Psychology (s).

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2011

Teachers were respectful and encouraged collaboration. They were also typically flexible and understanding. Most students worked full time in addition to school.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2005

UNM was a great school to attend for the quality of education I received, and now that I work there, I can say it's made leaps and bounds in terms of student services and support. The campus is beautiful, and I think the administration is really devoted to making sure students are served well.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2005

UNM is a good college. It tends to lean to the left politically, but has strong opportunities for conservative students as well. Anderson School of Business is nationally renowned. I had some great literature teachers at UNM with whom I am still in contact even though I graduated years ago.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2014

If I had not qualified for the lottery (and another scholarship) and been able to get a degree for free, I would never have even considered attending UNM. Even with the scholarships, I was hesitant. The biology program, the first two years in particular, is atrocious. It gets better in the upper levels, but you really have to be passionate about your major to keep going through it. I graduated magna cum laude and am getting right out of town, moving out of state for grad school. I actually avoid telling people where I got my degree from if I can help it.

Degree: Kinesiology and Exercise Science
Graduation Year: 2013

It was nice. Advisers were not helpful, classes ranged from small to very large. I enjoyed my experience.
