    Like most corrupt politicians in New Mexico, the student senators are the worst. One of them secretly ran a confessions page slandering the school and all of the students by name. OUR CURRENT STUDENT BODY PRESIDENT JOSEPH DOMINGUEZ GOT CAUGHT SELLING DRUGS AND IS STILL IN POSITION AND POWER. We have a corrupt administration that knows about this and still let's it happen and has been sued and/or taking to court multiple times. Plus, NMHU might be the cheapest university in the country but students have to pay for all the vandalism and trash all around and in the dorms. This school is honestly a money-sucking institution the only gets income off of stupid freshman who end up dropping out or transferring because they hate it so much. All the money goes to the buildings to lure students in by taking extremely edited photos of those buildings to make the school look like it's actually a safe and quality environment.

    Student won court case against NMHU: Memorandum of Constitutional Rights and Liberties and this document as well: A court case last year which a student was kicked off campus by the Dean of Students, Fidel Trujillo without due process and a video was shown proving the campus police were lying about obstructing an officer. It was proved in court that a dean or any administrator is not allowed to ban anyone from campus without first having criminal charges because that is a violation of our first amendment right to peacefully assemble on PUBLIC property. The student was arrested and charged with criminal trespass of PRIVATE property and found not guilty. And even after this court case the dean still tries to ban students off campus because he knows they probably donâ??t know their rights and/or canâ??t pay for a lawyer, which is totally tyrannical and sick in my opinion. Please share to show students what their civil rights are and how to deal with it if they think they are being mistreated by their university.

    Even the president is retiring because of so many complaints. NMHU administration tries to skimp people and even steal money from students and faculty and is involved in many appalling illegal activities: â??Instead of an atmosphere of leadership, we have an atmosphere of top-down direction with [an] expectation that faculty should just go along with the direction taken by the central administration,â?? faculty said in a letter to regents and the administration.

    If you get involved with anyone from this town you are royally F*CKED!!! Nobody else in the town or school will help you out. It's like a stay-quiet family full of inbred Hispanics/Mexicans. A brotherhood, so if you are from out of town or out of state even, you should only talk to people who are also out of town/state. Again, don't trust anyone from here, not even if it is a teacher, doctor, lawyer, or anything. The anti-social and racist politics in this state is pathetic and something needs to be done about it.

    He said he'd rather spend more on a nicer school than less on a miserable school that doesn't have much to offer.
