Before I came here i should have visited first or researched it more. NMHU is an very low key unknown college which is why it is not in many news articles with statistics about colleges. If you research hard or simply observe while you go here, you'll find out it is one of the highest STD rated colleges in the country, the town has one of the highest rates of sexual assault in the country, some of the worst professors, a low rated hospital with a high mortality rate, and much more. Either come here and waste your money or...

    NMHU is a very different experience then your ideal average college. I wish I never came, I am embarrassed to say that I go here, I'm going to have to live with the discomfort of knowing I have a degree from one of the most infamous and worst colleges in the United States. Low lives from all over the country and from the non-progressive small town it is located in go there, one big mess.

    The way this school is run I'd have to say the dean is probably an illegal Mexican with a fake degree. If I were to run a school, I would actually care about the safety of my students rather than the income from having just about anyone who is willing to pay tuition regardless of how bad/dangerous they are.

    NMHU should be relocated to Africa because it is poor, barely has much of a food choice, has a lot of black people and has the highest rate of STDs out of any college in this country. I'm surprised that an institution like this is allowed to be in existence and is still up and running. I feel like eventually it will have to be taken down, do to so many illegal things going on, not just with the students but the faculty, campus police and dean as well.

    This school needs to be investigated. I am highly disappointed with my college choice. There are just too many unspeakable things that go on here.

    On almost every single student review site, I see that this is not a very good school to go to. I just filled out an application and was planning on attending the school until I saw the town. It looked poverty-ridden and miserable.

    Freedom of speech: I think dean Fidel Trujillo is a heartless human being who only cares about the school's image rather than the safety and feelings of the students. I am pretty sure he covers up crime statistics as I was told by someone who was investigating the school. Some people in the student senate tried to get him fired and they either got expelled or left the school on their own terms. NMHU for you baby!!!

    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.
