Student & Graduate Reviews

4.1 out of 5 stars
Rose Urquidi - 9/16/2019
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2018
"The professors were great and very helpful. If they saw that you were trying to succeed they would help you try to reach your goals no matter how much you were struggling. The professors also help you as much as possible if you are planning on going to graduate school. They will get you all the resources you will need to apply for graduate school. As an undergrad in Counseling and community psychology there were a few of us who graduated with that degree, which I thought was great because you go through the majority of the classes with the same people. So you get to create a bond with the people you are doing the same degree as, especially if you are graduating in the same semester."

Jacob Determan - 5/21/2019
Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2018
"NMSU is not perfect. It sits in a medium-sized city that usually doesn't have much to offer in terms of entertainment. However, for someone who is dedicated to getting a quality education, this is a good place to be. The English department is small and lacks a lot that other programs have but the faculty is great and will guide you to your goals."

Emily Ericson - 5/1/2019
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017
"I attended this school because I was awarded a scholarship which assisted me financially. This university has seemingly exceptional programs in certain fields of study, such as engineering, however limited in others. Studying psychology at this university, the classes were met with basic instruction and offered narrow insight to the options of careers psychology offers. The psychology degree program did not have academic advisers during the years which I attended, thus limiting my exposure and ability to explore the realm of using psychology after college. The classes were average, however, I am disappointed in the limited assistance of advisers in preparing students for careers after completion of the degree. There are a variety of sectors in which psychology can be applied in the workplace, however much of this was done by my own research and discovery."

Beware of OTA - 9/13/2018
Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 1998
"I looked into the online OTA already holding a BS & postgrad credits, for an OTA. I sent over my transcripts to an advisor expecting only to retake A&P, but no, they were going to make me retake all prereqs except one! Freshman English and reading for some "liberal arts requeirment" an AA w/a BS degree."

Jill Campbell Farris - 5/24/2018
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 1983
"I attended NMSU in the 1980's so I'm sure the school has changed since then but I loved New Mexico State. I could have gone to the University of New Mexico (where my dad taught for many years) but chose the quieter town of Las Cruces and the Agricultural background of NMSU. My education was solid. I was challenged. I was an honors English student in high school and loved the relatively small English department at NMSU but chose to get an education degree. All in all it was a good experience."

Yirzely Villanueva - 3/30/2017
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."

Paola Sosa - 3/28/2017
Degree: Fine Arts
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."
