New Mexico State University-Main Campus is a flagship of the NMSU system and Hispanic-serving research institution. It is the first university in New Mexico and a designated land- and space-grant institution. The Carnegie Foundation has named NM State as having “higher research activity.” The New Mexico State campus is home to a 48-acre horse farm, grape vineyards, greenhouses, a garden, and the New Mexico Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum.
The faculty and staff who hosted the New Student Registration event were welcoming and provided students and parents with a lot of helpful information. The campus is convenient to home and I will live at home during the first semester. Transportation off and on campus is convenient and free to students with an appropriate pass which one can obtain from the Parking Department.

NMSU was dream school, the first day I walked on campus I felt so at home. Staff and students are very friendly. Being a first time college student was difficult but the staff was always willing to answer any questions I had and made sure I never left their building confused. Every professor I had was great and had their own teaching style. Not to mention the campus is very beautiful.
