New Mexico State is large enough to have something for everyone, but small enough for a sense of community. And, it's beautiful!
Darian from Las Cruces, NM
New Mexico State is a homey, clean, adjacent to everything kind of place. A great atmosphere and very nice people to meet. Everything is close by and students are friendly, always around to meet new people.
