University of New Mexico Reviews
Browse Reviews by Popular Programs:
The course work during the first two years at UNM was a little boring. There are quite a few core curriculum courses that have to be completed in order to earn a degree. After starting my courses in my degree program, I really enjoyed the experience. My program advisor was great at helping me meet my academic goals and successfully planning my schedule each semester. At that time, the instructors in the Exercise Science program were all enthusiastic about teaching and challenged students to think critically. If you're interested in pursuing a career in the health and fitness realm, UNM offers good programs to help you achieve that goal.
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.
Overall, it is a decent school. I was a transfer from Western New Mexico University, a small university in a small town. The life experience I learned was quite useful, and I would say invaluable, but the price to go to UNM wasn't worth it, compared to WNMU, and I personally feel as though the quality of education was just about the same.
UNM is not the fanciest university in the world, but it has many excellent professors, a wonderful and caring Honors program, and a stellar counseling center. I would recommend living on campus if possible.
UNM was a good school when I went there. It was a leader.
Great school has many fast track online classes which helps a lot especially if you're working and attending school. Academic advisors are willing to help and u found it easy to set up my class schedule for success. Overall the school is wonderful, the campus offers many opportunities to get involved.
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.
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.
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).
It was a great, supportive program. All of the faculty were really invested in our future careers and success.
