What Students Are Saying

3.71 Average Rating
Talk to upper-classmen. Somehow. Not the other incoming Freshmen, unless they're really familiar with the school already. Ask about which classes to take and which ones not to take.
Elizabeth from Socorro, NM
be prepared to work hard. study ahead of your classes. try to live and eat off campus.
alexander from albuquerque, nm
Take your high school GPA and testing very seriously, because financial aid is based on those two facets, alone.
Quintessa from Socorro, NM
Don't come here hoping to live it up in a college town. Socorro leaves you wanting more. Though the professors are all great and want to get to know you. Visit them in their office hours and build connections.
Steven
If you are planning on going to Tech as an incoming freshman, then prepare to have little to no social life. New Mexico Tech demands lots of work, inside the classroom or out. Also, if you have scholarships earned, then i would suggest taking the bare minimum to maintain scholarships.
Marc from Socorro, NM
Take all the help you can get and don't be afraid to ask for help. Ask questions in class if you do not understand because chances are that you are not the only one with the same questions.
Levi
Find a group of students in your class who want to work hard and learn. It is incredibly helpful having some support for classes you don't understand everything in, and if you have to explain something to another student you learn it that much better. Also, find a student who is a year ahead of you. They will be able to help you with issues you can't figure out, give you advice on professors, and maybe even let you borrow a text book so you don't spend $800 each semester.
Jon from Albuquerque, NM
I highly recommend NM Tech. There isn't ten thousand students and there aren't parties 24/7 but the education you will receive will carry you to the peak of science and engineering. The classes are hard, but they are completely manageable with a bit of patience and effort. Don't be afraid to join study groups and go in for help if you are struggling. The professors give hard work but not because they want you to fail but rather because they want you to succeed.
Student from Socorro, NM
Study habits/ strategies are crucial! Many Students come into NMT thinking that they can get buy on the study habits and strategies from high school when in fact the work is a lot more vigorous in college, and that goes for any college or university.
1) Study 2-3 hours four every credit hour you attempt
2) Find out whether you study better alone or in a group setting and apply your strengths
3)find a tutor immediately if you are struggling. otherwise you will fall way behind.
I myself, was actually one of these many students and now I am reforming my study schedule to accommodate for college, I just wish I would have made the decision before my first semester.
