  • Dorm activities are great but the outdated, overrun dorms need help, desperate help. Fortunately several projects are ongoing in an attempt to update the halls.…

    Having a meal plan is great, and there are a lot of great options as far as variety for student meals on campus, however, the main dining hall, La Posada, needs some serious overhauling, sometimes the food is overcooked, old, uncared for, and sometimes it''s amazing, delicious and perfect. A word of advice? Get the most basic meal plan available, most of my friends found themselves taken care of just fine with the standard plan. Most of the people I know who got the more advanced plans often regretted it, as they just had access to way too many options, and ended up wasting money. One last tip? Make sure you know where to use your food swipes on campus, it's a lifesaver if you're in a hurry or are busy and need a quick bite.

    All the options for food you can buy on campus are really accessible and good (except the starbucks in Zimmerman tends to get even simple orders wrong). LaPo will have great food for the first three weeks or so and then it goes downhill. After those few weeks the food is generally bland, is often over or undercooked, and pepper becomes the only seasoning they're aware of. LaPo is convenient but the meal plan is expensive for bland food (learn to cook!).

    lapo (la posada) isn't that great taste wise but it's very convenient to be able to eat how ever much you want whenever you want.

    While La Posada (Casas Del Rio cafeteria) may not have the best choices for food, the Student Union Building always has a wide variety from healthier options like subway to everyday favorites such as Chick-fil-a and Satellite! Plus all the close-by, cheap restaurants (Cheba Hut!).

    Lots of food options off campus. On campus food court is nice but really crowded at certain times of the day. Many shops in buildings throughout campus that allow for a quick snack before going to class.

    Recently, the functions of the dining hall were altered, and it's a lot better now then it used to be. It's open 24/7, and if you purchase a meal plan, you get unlimited access to it.

    There are literally so many restaurants on and around campus you could have Greek, New Mexican, Italian, Chinese, and even Hawaiian all within one school week. Ultimately, you never get bored (though prices range from highly affordable to OMG WHY in about three seconds).

    There are many different fraternities and sororities on and around campus that really represent the university well. They are all really involved with the community and often doing charity events.

    Personally, I'm not tied into anything regarding Greek Life, but I'm sure it's great.

    UNM does not have as predominant a Greek life as other schools. It does offer a variety of fraternities and sororities for those who are interested. I find that the laid-back Greek life helps to foster a sense of academia.

    I am not in a frat, but those whom I know are in them seem to enjoy the Greek life very much. I know for a fact that there are multiple fraternities and sororities to join, and those who join form a lifelong bond with their brothers or sisters. Greek life will definitely keep you entertained, that's for sure.
