There are 31 colleges in New Mexico, 28 public and 3 private, offering a wide range of programs and majors. New Mexico has both small schools (defined as less than 2000 students) and "very large" ones (10,000 or more students) and everything in between, including community colleges, in urban and rural environments.
The University of New Mexico is the largest institution in the state. Its flagship campus is located in Albuquerque, with other branches in Gallup, Los Alamos, Rio Rancho, Taos, and Valencia County. The University of New Mexico School of Medicine is highly-regarded as is the University of New Mexico School of Law.
New Mexico State University is deeply-rooted in the tradition of the southwest, and it also classified by the U.S. Department of Education as a Hispanic-serving institution. Founded in agriculture, New Mexico State University's flagship campus is located in Las Cruces with other campuses in Alamogordo, Carlsbad, Dona Ana County, and Grants.
Eastern New Mexico University is in the small town of Portales. Alyssa from Burnham loves the close-knit feel despite her initial doubts: "You might be thinking that you are more the big city type and would benefit more from an institution in an urban setting (I know I was). But between what I learn in class and out of it, I am confident that I would not be receiving a better education anywhere."
Other New Mexico colleges include New Mexico Highlands University in Las Vegas (NM), New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology in Socorro, Northern New Mexico College in Espanola, Western New Mexico University in Silver City, and many more.
