Student & Graduate Reviews

4.0 out of 5 stars
Everyone's a Lobo! - 2/24/2017
Degree: Religious Studies
Graduation Year: 2015
"UNM is a unique and diverse institution. While there are several well known and organized degree programs, religious studies was not one of them. Rather than a legitimate department where one could meet others, this is offered as a 'program' of study which forces the student to find their own way. The program is redeemed by having amazing professors such as Dr. Y. and Dr. B."

Degree: Psychology

"The University of New Mexico is a wonderful choice in higher education. The campus is beautiful year round and the architecture is artwork compared to other business light schools. I remember thinking that Zimmerman library is the most beautiful places on campus! There was always so much to do and so many clubs and activities to get involved in and be a part of. I joined the All-girl Cheerleading program and loved every minute of it. My classes were wonderful and my teachers were inspirational. There is such a difference that is made when your teacher truly loves what he or she does. The passion they spoke with encouraged me to dive right into the path I was on. The University of New Mexico was the right choice for me and will certainly be the right choice for you!"

"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."

Juliann Abeita - 2/11/2017
Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2016
"I had great advisors who helped me when my degree plans had changed due to a move overseas. My professors were great in all of my courses and very helpful when assignments were difficult. Overall the campus environment is very unique and involved in the surrounding communities. I completed most of my courses online and finished the program while overseas."

Kayla Kutter - 1/24/2017
Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2014
"The University of New Mexico may be the most diverse campus you will ever find. People of well off families, very poor families, first generation to leave the reservation and go to school, and everything in between. New Mexico is the name and diversity is the game."

Lanay Henry - 12/15/2016
Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2012
"The University of New Mexico's undergraduate elementary education degree provided many resources that prepared me for my future career as a teacher. The professors were readily available to assist whenever needed and provided support after graduating. They had a successful student teaching program that gave students the opportunity to gain much experience before entering the job scene. In addition, I was able to leave my bachelor's degree feeling ready for teaching and motivated to further my education by proceeding with a graduate degree."

Reilly Watanabe - 11/30/2016
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2006
"There are great teachers at UNM. The staff is also very helpful. While I didn't use any financial aid, when I had to talk to the Bursers office they were very helpful. The only thing is that since your classes can be very far from each other make sure to plan extra time to get places on campus."

Matthew Mason - 8/11/2016
Degree: Exercise Science
Graduation Year: 2008
"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."

Carece Carrillo - 7/26/2016
Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2016
"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."

Christian - 7/22/2016
Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2015
"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."
