This is not a very good school at all. It is a remedial school for bad kids to come get an easy and worthless degree. I don't feel like I'm at a real college, this reminds me of a public High School in a bad area.

    NMHU is a great college. It is very inexspensive, which is great if you're on a tight budget. The location is ideal, by buisinesses being only a few blocks away.

    Welcome to Mexico amigos! Yes, that's right, a better deserved name for a place so unworthy of being considered the United States of America. In this enchanted land there lies a college we call Mexico Highschool University, for various reasons. Please read below:

    Las Vegas New Mexico is truly an architectural gem-100s of historic registered buildings from victorian mansions to adobe haciendas unfortunately it is also full of DRUGS and SMALL MINDED NARROW VIEWED POLITICIANS. Las Vegas NM is leave it to beaverville by day and Fredie Krugerville by night. Financially affordable but other prices very high. Sorry

    Watch the video from the campus safety section. It shows a recording of a prostitution ring the the Dean of Students, Fidel Trujillo made a student delete. The student backed it up before showing it to him just in case after hearing not so much good things about this Dean and the attempts to cover up important issues like rape and assault.

    Watch out white people, NMHU is a Hispanic-serving institution. Whoever stereotypes white people as being the ones who are racist are wrong. Hispanic/Mexicans are pretty prejudice too. It is a racist school and I don't think anyone who is not familiar with the Hispanic culture should come here.

    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.
