What Students Are Saying

3.54 Average Rating
Find out about scholarships ahead of time, make sure you know the different deadlines, meet your teachers, and get involved as much as you can, because that enhances your college experiences.
Erinna from Anthony, TX
Make sure to come and visit UNM if you get the chance. There is a distinct feel about the campus that you should come get a taste of. You're sure to love it here!
Kyran from Phoenix, AZ
When going off to college, keep your head held high. Never fear a new beginning or experience. Both are offered here.
Shauna from Bay Minette, AL
There are two areas were great improvement is needed. One is the parking situation, and the other is the University Advisement office. Parking is horendous, but there is no way around it. I can only provide a warning. They are strict about enforcing parking violations, and you have to pay over one hundred and fifty dollars to park anywere close to campus. A permit for a lot further away will cost you less, but with the hords of students going to class at the same times the shuttles often move at snail pace. The University Advisemnt Office is another issue, but after your core curriculum is finished you no longer have to deal with them. The issues here are long waits to even see an advisor, different information from different advisers, and they make you follow a flawed process in order to register.
Tyler from Albuquerque, NM
Take advantage of resources available for students such as tutoring center.
Review your work throughout the semester.
Talk to an academic advisor before dropping any classes.
Make sure you get holds removed from your account before registration.
Don't wait till last minute to register for classes.
Lizzet from Albuquerque, NM
If you are not goal driven, if you are not success craving, do not waste your time. Come to college to better yourself and your knowledge of the world. There is a lot to learn here about life, about culture, about common sense and about our world. Join something that will become revolutionary... change at least one persons life that you meet. Live by a mantra for your first semester and realize it was silly. Mess up and rebuild your confidence, it is all worth it. Use what you learn to survive in our tough world today. When I say make a difference, I mean it. The most important thing is learn how to find yourself. College can be a lot more rewarding then just a steady good paying job. When your done here, another piece of your puzzle will have been created and you will be one step closer to complete. Suck it up and reap the benefits of college.
Bailey from Albuquerque, NM
Be ready to have fun. Don't come here feeling like you want be able to succeed. If you believe in yourself, so will everyone else.
Stacy from Los Alamos, NM
If you are at all interested in UNM, I urge you to take a campus tour, and apply. I also urge you to find and apply for any scholarship you can find.
Juan from Tijeras, NM
Double check what your academic advisers say. They know about their own department, but they are useless when it comes to financial aid. Go talk to the financial aid office if you have questions about that, or you may lose your scholarships because of misinformation. Also, get into your major's college as soon as possible. You'll have better advisers then.
Morgan from Rio Rancho, NM
Do well in high school. Although admission standards are not real high to gain admittance to UNM, do your best before you get here. College is different from high school and your time is not as planned making what time you have valuable. Finally, get involved when you get here to UNM. College is a fun and new experience, and getting involved will make it even better!
Zachary from Rio Rancho, NM
