    A lot of the professor's are great and it's a very one on one environment.

    Know what classes you want and are required. The adviser's aren't always helpful and you could end up taking a class that you didn't need.

    What to do for fun

    I don't want to sound like I am bashing my school but there really isn't much to do. Maybe around town you might want to go check out the recreational center, or maybe check out the Carlsbad caverns.

    Food and Dining

    There really isn't much you can do at New Mexico State University-Carlsbad. On the college campus you can go to the book store and find a snack or something when your hungry but that's about it. If you go around town then your options for food get bigger.

    Dorm Life

    Sadly since New Mexico State University-Carlsbad is a community college no dorms are to be available. I was looking forward to the college dorm life too. But independent housing is available, the college isn't far from town so there should be no trouble getting to class on time.

    Academic Rigor

    This is my first time going to college and what can say is that when I found myself paying actual attention I began to learn. Once you focus on your studies it gets a lot easier. Trust me if I can do it you can do it too.

    Tips for prospective students

    Here's some tips to succeed in New Mexico State University-Carlsbad, paying attention. Paying attention in class will determine what you learn and what you don't want to learn. It is very critical that when you go to class that you're the mentally like you are physically. Another simple tip for success is to know that you are not alone and that there is help in the team center waiting for you. The team center is a place where college professionals are available to help when you feel stuck or feel that you don't understand something. Follow those tips and success will be in your near future.

    New Mexico State University-Carlsbad is a community college which offers a two year college program. The campus is very smal but the employeed teachers make up for that. The faculty staff is very generous and they are always available to help you when you are in need of assistance.

    Food and Dining

    No cafeteria, but they do have good food for events that they hold fairly often.

    Dorm Life

    There are no dorms on this campus

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are registering for classes that are prerequisites for a program, make sure that you double check you are taking the right classes with someone from the program. Not everyone in Student Services knows exactly what they are talking about.

    In three sentences

    A small friendly campus. Students feel welcome here, and do not feel swallowed up among the thousands of other students. It's a good choice for students who want their college experience to feel personal.

    Great for these types of students

    Great for students who do not want to have a lot of college involvement and just want to get school over and done with as soon as possible.

    Bang for the buck

    You can take a good amount of classes, if you schedule permits, for a very minute amount of money.

    Food and Dining

    The little caf�© is nice, and the coffee is really good. It is also half off on Mondays.

    Dorm Life

    There are no dorms at NMSU- Carlsbad

    Academic Rigor

    This school is not very rigorous at all. I was a B student in high school and I have all A's in my classes. Teachers do not give a lot of homework but the homework they do give, amounts for a lot of your grade.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would advise prospective students to take advantage of all the teachers' office times, and get help before you are failing a class. Also, there are many tutoring services one can take advantage of.

    In three sentences

    The campus is really small, yet it still provides a college atmosphere. The teachers are very nice, and are always willing to help their students. It is like any other college, but is actually a junior college.
