Most Helpful Review for New Mexico Highlands University

Being at Highlands University is a really great school. The classes are very small which helps a student get one on one time with their professor. The classrooms are good learning environments for the students. The school has many places that are quiet and has good places to go off and study alone or with study groups.

    Its a pretty good school, but I think due to the open admissions the school is kinda going downhill. However, you can get get good education depending on what major you are in (mainly sciences, education, and business are the top choices). It really comes down to what you make of it.

    Who would want to attend a school that has the slowest or non-existent WIFI? Why is this school so poor? Is it going to get better umm I don't think so.

    Great social work program that prepares students for career. Professors understand that adult students have children, families, work and lives. Administration is easy to work with to register for classes and whatever else is needing to be done.

    NMHU is a small campus with professors who are willing to work with you. It is surrounded by gorgeous scenery, and there is almost always something to do on campus. NMHU is also provides a good education and is pretty affordable.

    To learn what our school is really like, check out the NMHU Confessions page that repeatedly gets taken down because it's too offensive. Luckily, I saved some of what people say about this school. Watch the video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lsTGraPCkr8

    Highlands is a very interesting school. It offers a fine educational system but at a low cost compared to other schools.
