    Athletes

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The world college is a pretty cool place.

    What to do for fun

    I don't have a lot of off time do to playing baseball. But for fun we always either go fishing or go and relax in the hot springs. It is a very outdoorsy place

    In three sentences

    Luna Community College is a small school. It is a very helping and thoughtful school. I came her to play baseball so i believe the baseball program is very good.

    Campus Safety

    OK.

    Greek Life

    Phi Theta Kappa only.

    Clubs and Activities

    Not much besides baseball and softball.

    Great for these types of students

    Local commuter students, as well as non-traditional students. Baseball and Softball players.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Most traditions are community. However, Luna used to be an Army training base. Many of the troops trained here died in the Bataan Death March in the Phillipines in WW II. The place does have its historical significance, and is often still called Camp Luna.

    Bang for the buck

    Hey, it's cheap.

    What to do for fun

    Unless you play softball or baseball, I suggest a student get involved in the local community, through church, a volunteer fire dept, or some other community group. There's not much to do actually at Luna. I think there's some theater groups in town. Also, there are the hot springs at Montezuma, NM, nearby, as well as the Santa Fe National Forest, if you like the outdoors. During the warm months, there's the inexpensive Fort Union Drive-in outside of town.

    Food and Dining

    Cafteria has skimpy portions and limited hours. The place needs a snack shop for social gathering. Be prepared to bag your lunch or drive off to a fast food place.

    Dorm Life

    No dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    There are some interesting, challenging classes, but be careful of pointless busy-work, especially in core courses.

    Tips for prospective students

    Figure out how much it will cost to commute to Luna. This includes gas, car repairs, and meals. Be pro-active in your academic life, since the Access Center does not tell you everything. Remember: not all two-year degrees mtake two years; figure out what you need to do to reach you goals. Luna has baseball and softball teams, and the players seem to have fun. These are the only sports.

    In three sentences

    Luna is an inexpensive community college, close to where I live. This is its key point of interest. The classes are small, and the faculty are accessible and interested in their students.

    Campus Safety

    There is a security officer on campus all the time and the local pd patrol as well.

    Clubs and Activities

    Honors programs like Phi Theta Kappa and there are many sports teams available as well

    Great for these types of students

    Any, academic acknowledgements are made to those who achieve them and academic assistance is there for those who need it.

    Bang for the buck

    It is a great local college, if you're seeking small. If you would like 4 year you can transfer to nearby Highlands University.

    What to do for fun

    I actually travel to attend school and do not live in the city, I couldn't tell you what is available.

    Food and Dining

    The Rough Rider Grill has fantastic staff and fantastic food. The green chile is the best around.

    Dorm Life

    No dormitories on campus

    Tips for prospective students

    Check up on your required text list from time to time, it tends to change. Familiarize yourself with financial aid procedures as the financial aid department staff is not as helpful as I ,personally, would like. Don't be afraid to ask.....anything.

    In three sentences

    Although the campus is small, it is well equipped. The college's location in a smaller city enable the staff and instructors to achieve a more personal relationship with the students. In comparison to other colleges in the state, Luna is affordable.

    Campus Safety

    This campus is extremely safe. There are little to no criminal problems on campus. Their is only an average of two vandalism cases in the past year, and their is no instances of sexual assaults, or violence.

    Greek Life

    Not involved.

    Clubs and Activities

    I am not involved.

    Great for these types of students

    This college is great for students who are getting into the math or science fields. Also great for students who are planning on going to a university, but don't want to pay an arm-and-a leg for core classes. Also this school is great for people who are working, or who have young children. There is a daycare center on campus.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Not involved.

    Bang for the buck

    Tuition is great compared to bigger schools in Northern New Mexico. Again I stress being aware of your own financial situation, and having a close watch on it is key. Keeping track of your credit hours is also key. Some advisory staff will not take into consideration your financial credit hour requirements.

    What to do for fun

    Their are many activities happening on campus for the students, and in town their are many activities inviting the college kids.

    Food and Dining

    Their is a cafeteria on campus that is ran by the culinary students. Food is exceptional. The town is small,so restaurants, and student homes are conveniently close.

    Dorm Life

    Did not stay in dorm.

    Academic Rigor

    Teachers care about how you are preforming academically. Tutoring labs are found throughout the campus. Teachers will personally meet with you to help when needed. This school gets an A+.

    Tips for prospective students

    Some tips I have are not dealing with the academic aspects of this school because the teachers are wonderful. If you need any sort of financial aide, scholarships, or grants check on their status frequently. Their is little communication between financial people and students until its to late. Remind advisers about your financial situations and pay attention to your credit hours.

    In three sentences

    The teaching staff is 100% for the students! I love my teachers, and even the teaching staff I have not taken are helpful. The administrative people are not very helpful, but for the most part this is a great school for first or second year students.
