College Freshman

Online Courses: I haven't taken any online courses here, but I haven't heard a lot of stellar things about them either.

2 College Freshman

Campus Resources: The campus is fairly small, and about 15 minutes south of town. There is nothing else really around it, so if you have classes all day don't expect to be able to walk to someplace for lunch. Either pack it or choose something from the limited and overpriced snackbar menu. The library is extremely small- located inside a trailer a long with the computer lab, so while it isn't fancy it serves its purpose and has a lot of resources and archives needed for classes.

Campus Resources: A laptop is helpful but not necessary, there are several computers available as well free black and white printing. The network reliability is meh, although I think it has more to do with the town of Taos then the actual campus. The wireless access is EXTREMELY slow- don't expect to be able to do much on it. Streaming music is impossible and browsing websites is frustrating.

Overall Experience: I am thankful that there is a location near Taos just because of how rural our location is, and it has given me the opportunity to get ahead in my education. However, I am planning on transferring somewhere very very far away once I turn 18 and have gotten my associates. I don't think I'd be able to stay here much longer.

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: A lot of the classes can feel a bit remedial, but the professors are really great people and very understanding about people's situations.

4 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: I am currently on financial aid and it pays for everything except for a few lab fees.

College Freshman

Career Services: I haven't graduated yet and am sure of these things.

2 College Freshman

Student Body: Most of the student body is 30+ years, mainly going back to school, or high school students who are doing dual enrollment.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: I have not start yet i will be starting in the spring

2 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: i wont start till spring it will me my first your in collage, but I have hard good things

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Since we are a branch campus we do not have extracurricular activitys. We have a library, student government that provide fun stuff to do, and a tutoring center that always has a welcoming feel to it.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: We offer a wide range of available places to use a computer and print. The printing is free and free wi-fi for students with laptops.

5 College Sophomore

Online Courses: I love the online classes. You can easily schedule when and where to do your homework. Whether it be home or a coffe shop. They are great classes and you learn a lot from them.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: UNM-Taos is a good branch campus and is open to the community. I trasfered to this school because it was close to home and had some really good classes. I did attend New Mexico Highlands Univesity, but most of the credit I took there didnt transfer, but a few of them did. So I guess overall this school is a good school.

3 College Student

Campus Resources: Student Art Show is free to UNM Taos Students and an honors society PTK, is being established. There are a number of free lectures and some reduce priced workshops available.

2 College Student

Tuition & Financial Aid: Very difficult to see financial aid officer. She is helpful when you do get a chance to her. Her front desk people are not helpful and always recommend you come to see her during her walk in hours. Then when you arrive the wait it overwhelming.

3 College Student

Academic Flexibility: Financial aid and loans were hard to get due to limited time with the financial aid officer. She is the only one on staff. I wasn't able to receive aid until my sophomore semester of this Spring 2013.
I have two small children and going to school has now become a huge financial burden on my family of three.

1 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: To be honest, I have had a lot of frustration when selecting my classes because they seem to be very limited. I will be transferring next semester because the availability of classes I need seems to be limited due to the fact that there are not enough students taking each class, so even if the classes were originally set, they could be cancelled if there are not enough students enrolled.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: I had never taken an online course before and was a little nervous about how different it would be. The work load for my online course is about double the workload of my classroom courses. My professor does make good effort to speak with all of us and is generally pretty easy to get a hold of if you can catch them while their on chat. I find it to be much like when I was being home schooled because it is a lot of independant work. Overall I would say it's been a good experience so far.

1 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: There is no flexibility at this school. There is only one class offered for each subject and course number each semester or even every other semester. Almost all of the classes are offered at a time that is very inconvenient if you need to put your children in daycare in order to be in class; there is mostly late night classes which is good for people who work but not for parents with no babysitter, they definitely need more flexibility.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Very Satisfactory – My overall experience with the school I am attending is very satisfactory. I like that it is a small school, which allows for a more one on one relationship with teacher.

4 College Freshman

Online Courses: Online courese let you work around when you want to take the class. Its up to your pace but yet up to you to finish the course on time.
