Student & Graduate Reviews

1.3 out of 5 stars
NotALobo - 8/4/2015
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."

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

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."

MSA - 8/4/2015
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."

T.K. - 5/8/2015
Degree: Agriculture
Graduation Year: 1998
"Affordable, with excellent professors and a real commitment to international engagement. The University has strong institutional ties to partners in Mexico and the rest of Latin America. Opportunities for foreign study, research and travel were readily available, well supported, and easy to access."

UNM - 4/6/2015
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016
"Not only was the process to get enrolled extremely prolonged, but the experience of attending this school was not very pleasant. A majority of the students attending were very rude and disrespectful towards the instructors. As for the instructors, most were brought to UNM from CNM and were either set in their ways of how they taught at CNM or were just horrific teachers that conducted their classrooms in a very tedious manner. The larger the classrooms were, the less you were able to contact the instructor and gain feedback or be eligible for office hours. The CAPS department was very helpful, but only if you were able to take a large chunk of your time to go up to see someone for help. The advisors are absolutely atrocious and have no idea what they are even telling you about what you need for your degree and what next semester holds. I was convinced that I needed 18 credit hours in order to receive my degree and still have my scholarship, but was lied to and deceived. I ended up having to drop out due the amount of stress and anxiety I was enduring just to try to keep up with a full-time job and the maximum amount of hours."
