    If you are not alright with large class sizes, I suggest you look elsewhere. Most of the classes at NMSU are fairly large. There are also several teacher assistants, which some people may not like because sometimes they try to teach instead of the professor. However, there is lots to do and the professors are generally helpful, as well as the TA's. If you are also looking for jobs on campus, or plan to study abroad, this university really emphasizes on that.

    Study hard, don't get involved in the party scene, and maintain focus. When times get too tough, talk to a counselor.

    The first time on campus, see as much as possible. The more you know, the less you fear. Get involved in the things that interest you. Join a club, find a hobby, do something you enjoy. The classes are small enough to get to know your professors, do it!

    Set up a meeting with an adviser ASAP because there are so many little tips they can give you for reaching your goals and making them more attainable. Take advantage of the numerous programs they offer! For example, they have the Wiche program, which can really help with out of state tuition costs for students that plan to go to graduate colleges. Be active in a club. There are so many clubs here that I am positively unaware of more than a few and there is surely one that will fit your major or maybe an interest or whim.
