4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: the school is very open to having a class scheduled for those who needs a later class

4 College Senior

Online Courses: Online courses are user friendly. many times there are tips to help out if you are any trouble and plus its self explanatory.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: This school is small compared to other schools. Which means you can have a lot of one-on-one time with instructors. The newly built library is a great place to do work in because there are pods throughout the library. Any activities that is involved around campus it is open to everyone that is affiliated with the school.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Favorite experiences include very good science professors, fun music department major students and faculty with performances, some good (Fine) Arts Department classes, and some good food. The school had a sustainable food program that supplied an on-campus cafe, but that program mostly closed down as did the cafe. The school needs to work hard to keep unique and innovative programs, such as those, as they improve the quality of life of the students dramatically. I'd choose it again because it was affordable and because I got to be very involved.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I was able to transfer credits to the college with no problem. The classes/curriculum are flexible enough for the professor keep the class on track and to make sure we learn the curriculum.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: Athletic center is good with nice gym and workout area. Student center is being remodeled and will hopefully be even nicer than it used to be. Library is great and modern. Campus activities are hopefully going to be improved and expanded. Research symposium every year and theater production every year. Campus is in a high-desert environment, with an arroyo flowing through the middle of the campus, and is surrounded by beautiful 14,000 foot mountains around its location in a valley near the Rio Grande River.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: Computer labs are alright - library, student success center, etc. Printing is good - 20 sheets free per day at the student success center. They charge you for printing at the library. Network is reliable and fast. Wireless is always good. Best to bring a laptop, but there are many students who seem to make it by using school PCs.

3 College Senior

Facilities: It's a small school. People generally hangout on-campus and study, and when you make friends, you will likely hangout with them off-campus. The new library is excellent. The campus has several clubs, and the clubs will hopefully keep growing and bring more events to the campus.

3 College Senior

Student Body: Most students are straight out of college, but there are also many adults earning their degrees. Mostly Hispanic, with many Native American students, and Caucasian students, with other ethnicities represented less currently (2014). Generally a welcoming environment for diversity. Several clubs available that bring diversity to campus. Mostly Catholic area, but there is a very tolerant and non-religious/secular environment on campus, and people are generally secular/tolerant in demeanor in the area. Largely democratic area.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: In the Integrative Health Studies program, the courses have been great. Subjects such as Anatomy & Physiology I & II, Aromatherapy, Chinese Medicine, Herbal Medicine, History of Medicine, Legal Issues and Ethics, and Pathophysiology I & II. There are lots of science courses available too, from General Chemistry to Organic Chemistry, from Cellular and Molecular Biology and up, etc. The Integrative Health Studies program has closed, however, so faculty have been changing as the program is phased out. Those courses remaining have been absorbed into the Holistic Nursing program.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: Professors are generally very good. Lots of very good science professors with Los Alamos National Laboratories near-by. There were lots of good Doctors of Oriental Medicine and Naturopathic Doctors teachings in the Integrative Health Studies program. Curriculum is usually fine. Workload is average. It would be good to see more good professors hired as full-time rather than as adjunct faculty, and to pay them more.

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: They keep increasing the tuition costs year to year. I have not had any experience with the financial aid process, but I know that the majority of students at the college rely on the financial aid. Be aware with financial aid of the limitations on how long you can study with financial aid support and make sure to plan your degree track well!

3 College Senior

Online Courses: Online courses here are okay. Some of the professors have assigned way too much work, while others have made the courses too easy. The discussion forum is used by some professors as a replacement for in-class dialogue, but often it could be better and more intelligent. File sharing has been a great way to share valuable textbook readings, and I have had a great amount of access to really excellent information from one online course instructor in particular.

3 College Senior

Career Services: I haven't met with post-grad services at my school, ie career center. I suppose alumni network would be from people who I keep in contact with and get their contact info while I am at the college. Job prospects - I have had help from my professors in applying to graduate schools.

1 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I'm a single mom commuting 3 hours 3 days a week very early in the morning.

3 College Junior

Facilities: I like the library. The food service is crap. The classrooms could be updated.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: We pay a higher tuition for this RN program. There were many outside the tuition fees starting out.

College Junior

Career Services: I don't know about post grad services. No one has mentioned anything.

2 College Junior

Overall Experience: I commute and hour and a half one way three days a week and have to leave my house at 6 to be there on time. It is more expensive than other programs in the area. But I was kind of out of options at the time and am making the best of a difficult situation.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: Its a hard program, I don't have experience of other nursing programs so maybe all nursing program are hard. This one seems like they have never done it before rather than the 30 years they have been doing it.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: I think maybe they have a hard time finding good professors

3 College Junior

Online Courses: We had a nursing math course that was online. It was okay. It seemed like the teacher maybe was not as organized as well as she could be and that the test grading process was difficult for her.

3 College Junior

Student Body: Its sort of diverse. There are many native american and spanish people that go there. Less white people and some black.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: We have a dedicated nursing computer lab as well as other labs in the library, and other parts of school. Having a computer is still necessary though as I commute from far away.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Similar to other schools, there is not much offered for people who are not considered to need "financial aid". Although my parents make too much for me to qualify for any assistance, it is not considered that there are three college students in the household.
