    Message to all High School girls looking for colleges: One thing I really wish I did was try in high school. Your grades and GPA really do matter. Studying for ACT/SAT tests and taking them would be your best bet. Don't just pick a random college, scope them out first to look for your best interest or you might end up like me. I randomly chose a college called New Mexico Highlands University because I had no time. It was the end of July and this was one of the only rolling admission colleges I found on the internet. It has a 100% acceptance rate and is the cheapest 4 year university in the nation. Some of the student reviews didn't look good but I frantically needed somewhere to go out of state so I applied, didn't even visit first, and got dropped off in the middle of nowhere. If I had only researched this college more, it is located in Las Vegas, New Mexico. San Miguel County. One of the poorest cities and counties in the nation. Let me start off by the fact that I just don't understand how a college can exist in such a place like this. How the f*ck can you have an institute of higher learning in the murder capital of New Mexico according to FBI report in 2011? It is a small sketchy town where poverty has a way of creating soulless humans. It's pretty sketchy, there is a mental hospital that lets the crazy patients out and walk around town and into the dorms. The Hispanic/Mexican culture is brutal here. Most men beat the women and domestic violence rate is so high. Aggravated assault is higher than national average here and so is sexual assault. The town in non-progressive. All every does is drink and do drugs and work at shitty fast food restaurants. People from out of state, we call them townies for a reason. Don't ever date them or trust them. The first year I was here I was raped by a local townie guy that I had a relationship with. The next year I witnessed domestic violence from the second relationship and unfortunately was nice enough not to report it when the neighbors called the cops. Even when they saw my hands bleeding. Only to get cheated on and f*cked over by him a week later and knowing that I protected him at first gave him enough to say it never happened. Crime is so well covered up here and at the university because some things you have to know about the town of LV, NM: 1. You are either in a relationship 2. You are related to everyone 3. The combination of the both (inbreds). Small towns like this one don't take too kindly to outsiders. Reporting something a townie has done to you will probably get you absolutely no where because of the racist and biased administration. Some other things I learned from living here is that no matter what kind of degree you have, even if it is a Doctor's degree you are still a straight up piece of sh*t. Still trying to rip people off and act like your fellow townies, stealing, lying, cheating and breaking laws. Everyone, in a high up position or homeless has the same sketchy personality, it doesn't matter. This town and University is a hell hole with sociopathic culture and I advise every girl seeking a good education to not come here.

    If you are white, I wouldn't recommend coming here because if there is a problem, the school will take the Hispanic person's side any day, no matter how wrong they are. http://www.aaup.org/report/academic-freedom-and-tenure-new-mexico-highlands-university

    If you are not used to and okay with hispanic/mexican men controlling you and possibly even beating you, then don't date anyone from the town of Las Vegas New Mexico. Personal experience.

    There was a strike on campus and now as a group students have come together to let it be known and hopefully investigated by posting honest student reviews of what really goes on here. I advise future students to pick a different school.
