Education here is poor. The University only cares for the university and not the students. The tuition is affordable.

    Most teachers do their best to provide a solid education amidst the troubling incompetence of the administration (except maybe that drunk professor in the Albuquerque social work program). For example, they still have academic calendars from two years ago on the website because IT is just as lazy as the rest of them. Yes, it is a cheap school, and the saying that you get what you pay for is definitely true here. If you just want a piece of paper, and you can handle the constant aggravation of dealing with the ignorance of the staff and administration, and you do not mind the animal and human abuse in the hellhole of Las Vegas, NM, this is the school for you. If you are not Hispanic, be prepared for the intense/dangerous ethnic prejudice of teachers, staff, and locals. If you want an education, competent efficient staff, and an inspiring social scene, go to a real school. This place is a joke.

    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.

    This school needs to be investigated. I am highly disappointed with my college choice. There are just too many unspeakable things that go on here.

    On almost every single student review site, I see that this is not a very good school to go to. I just filled out an application and was planning on attending the school until I saw the town. It looked poverty-ridden and miserable.

    Its a pretty good school, but I think due to the open admissions the school is kinda going downhill. However, you can get get good education depending on what major you are in (mainly sciences, education, and business are the top choices). It really comes down to what you make of it.

    Great social work program that prepares students for career. Professors understand that adult students have children, families, work and lives. Administration is easy to work with to register for classes and whatever else is needing to be done.

    NMHU is a small campus with professors who are willing to work with you. It is surrounded by gorgeous scenery, and there is almost always something to do on campus. NMHU is also provides a good education and is pretty affordable.
