"The University of New Mexico is situated in the desert landscape of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Life flourishes in this desert and encourages the wildlife enthusiast to hike, fish, mountain-bike, or simply meditate in the Sandia Mountains that create the Eastern border of Albuquerque. This mountain range's name is the Spanish word for "watermelon." The range lives up to its namesake, especially at dusk when the sun is setting because the rays reflect off the range in a red glow. It is beautiful and unique, just like the University of New Mexico (UNM). The Spanish architecture of the buildings on campus are constant reminders of the city's rich history which began with the Native Americans and culminated with Juan de Onate in 1598. The diversity of students at UNM creates an atmosphere of friendship, understanding, and enlightenment. It is so easy to make new friends at UNM, and you'll be surprised how many students come from out of state and out of country! The curriculum provided during my undergraduate prepared me well for my graduate academic career. Because of the success during my first four years at UNM, I decided to attend graduate school at UNM as well. There is a lot of collaboration between staff and between universities around the world! UNM strives to prepare students who are not only successful in their respective careers, but also successful at becoming a friendly, loving, intelligent human being."

"The University of New Mexico is an excellent school. The professors kindness and professional support is awesome. I have really appreciated all aspects of my time at the university. I know that I am a better person because of the time that I spent there. The courses are rigorous and challenging but lead to a deeper understanding of science."

"The University of New Mexico is a college with great student diversity as well as professor diversity. I found that the professors I had in my undergraduate studies were extremely passionate about what they were teaching. This not only made the material being learned easier to understand, but it also made the quality of education that much higher. I found that the classes I took with professors and doctors who were genuinely interested in their fields left the biggest impact on me and increased my likelihood of receiving a high grade."

"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."

"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."
