2 College Junior

Student Body: Dumb right-wing nuts, confederate apologists, and nationalist military hardliners.

2 College Junior

Facilities: Psychologically repressive environment led by sadistic cadets and faculty.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I get scholarships for ROTC and being in the National Guard which is nice.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: So far it has been a great experience and is one of my best choices I have ever made in my life. By coming here i have learn many leadership skills.

1 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: You HAVE to pay for all of your uniform stuff which puts quite a dent in your pockets. They charge unnecessarily for a variety of things all because it's a military school. They charge you to pay for your own drug tests that they administer randomly. If you're paying for school yourself, don't go here. Go to West Point or Air Force or whatever service academy you want to enter. Those places are so much better than this school even if it does take you 4 years to commission.

1 College Freshman

Online Courses: There is no online courses at this school. So good luck trying to take an extra class that your schedule won't allow.

1 College Freshman

Career Services: You go into the Army of your next 4-year school. There really is no other options.

Academic Flexibility: Most teachers don't like having more than the allotted number of students in class and will kick kids out. Absences are counted as marching tours and some teachers won't allow you to get out of missing a class regardless of the reason.

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Most teachers are cool. There isn't a variety of classes to choose from and you're very limited, but odds are you're just there to get your AA or commission early anyways. Class sizes are small, but there's no such thing as an easy class or a work free class.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I'm getting an AS with a mathematics concentration and I'm planning on pursuing a degree in Math so it lines up nicely. As do most of the AA and AS's offered at NMMI.

Campus Resources: Most sites are blocked. So the lab report you're doing on alcoholic fermentation, yeah those sites are blocked because you can't look at anything alcohol related on the internet. I've seen sites such as tattoo publishers sites blocked for all "Tattoo" sites are blocked as well because of the high school students age. They do rent out personal computers that are decent. Printing is free as it is included in your tuition.

2 College Freshman

Campus Resources: The Library is never open when you need it to be so better bring your own printer. I don't even know if there is a student center because that's how often it's used. Athletic resources and facilities are great though. You have to participate in a Campus Sport. IT'S MANDATORY. If you don't your put in this workout activity that you are required to go to.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: The one good thing about this school is the facilities. There is plenty of fields and nice fields at that. The workout facilities are great for being a junior college.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I'm an Athlete, so having a free education at this school is the only reason I'm here. If I had to pay a single dime to go to this school I would transfer so fast. The Coaches are extremely good and care about their players, but outside of that most everybody already has a grudge against you so your time isn't all that pleasant.

1 College Freshman

Student Body: The School has a chain of command made up of students your age and younger. They dictate your lives and can completely ruin your chances of graduating from that school depending on if they like you or not. Most students are power crazy and will back stab you or run mad with their fake power that they are given within the school. With that being said, most athletes and a Few ROTC members are extremely cool and outgoing. Remember, you're going to school with high school students as well.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Living in a military school is tough, but in the end the effort is well worth it. Skills such as time management, discipline, and leadership are developed while attending the New Mexico Military Institute.

Campus Resources: The network at NMMI is quite complicated. The network has a filter that disables a majority of major websites that are used commonly. Some websites are allowed but are filtered to a certain extent. Search results in search engines are also filtered and in most cases require specific terms to narrow results. The network is also a bit difficult to work with since a user log-in and password is required for most access ports. The use of the Wifi on mobile devices proves to be harder to manage than on regular desktops with the constant need to log in.

Online Courses: I do not take any online courses at NMMI so I am not able to give any insight on this topic.
My sincerest Apologies.

If anything, I do know that many cadets take courses over the summer and are able to receive credit without much complications or trouble.

5 College Senior

Campus Resources: The New Mexico Military Institute is well known school in the military. The SROTC program at NMMI is very in-depth with the training and knowledge necessary to pass LDAC (Leadership Development Assessment Course). On average, NMMI commissions close to 50 new Second Lieutenants every year. The institute is also known for it's Service Academy Self-Prep program. All five service academies send their prep students to NMMI as a stepping stone to better assess their qualification for the service academies. The prep students that are sent to NMMI are Sponsored Preps, and the cadets that are looking to join on their own are Self Preps. The program is unique because both types of preps are given the same courses for each specific service academy to better compare their results and standings in the competition for slots in the academies. The self prep program has had a 50% acceptance rate over the years and to this day is still a highly populated program.

Campus Resources: The campus has a wide variety of resources on both an academic and professional level. The library can offer much information yet finding what you need to know specifically is rather difficult. On a professional level, the professors and cadets both have a plethora of knowledge to help in many given career fields but again, it is rather difficult to find out what you may be looking for specifically. If anything, the only way to find what you need is to ask around and possible endure being sent on a scavenger hunt. One cadet/professor may have an idea of who to go to and that individual will send you elsewhere if needed. The cycle continues until you eventually reach your mark or find an alternative but about 80% of the time you will find what you need to know.

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: There is free tutoring available and professors are always in during office hours to help cadets. There is a public gym by the school that provides free membership for cadets.

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: There is always a proper with the network once a week mainly due to the server crashing. Not to mention mostly ever website is blocked affecting research which we direly need since most of the work done for school is in the dorms.

3 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: Schedule is controlled by the school. Only thing you can control is what classes you decide to take in the beginning of the semester. Other than that forget about having a free weekend. Exact opposite of flexibility but this in turn builds character as well as discipline among the cadets.

Academic Flexibility: NMMI is a military school and the instructors/admissions have high expectation for us. Therefore, some of us take up to 20-24 credits per semesters. The classes are sometimes hard, including all the extra activities that they add to our schedules such as parades, mandatory sports games that we have to go to, meetings and formations it is hard to keep up with our studies. All of these activities make it almost impossible for us to study and do our homework but i think that this will benefit me for my next college by preparing me and teaching me time management.

Student Body: There are people from all over the world that come to NMMI. Theres cadets from Poland, Mexico, Ireland, Germany, Makarska, Afghanistan as well as other states of the country such as Texas, California, Colorado, Arizona, etc. There's many clubs for all kind of people for both male and female. As a cadet here at NMMI I can honestly say that I have made the best friends I could ever met or have. I live with them and gotten to know a lot of people. We are all very close, we workout together, study together, suffer together and laugh together. I will never forget my two years at NMMI.
