5 College Freshman

Majors: I want to work in a zoo

5 College Freshman

Majors: Applying to UNM is really simple, cheap, and easy.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: There should be financial aid help once you appy

3 College Freshman

Transportation: The price for bus riding is fairly priced.

4 College Freshman

Computers: The only downfall to computer use on campus, is that when you bring your own you often have a difficult time connecting to one of the two main networks for students. You have to keep alternating between the two. And on very rare occasions, neither will work.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: It's great being a Lobo, everyone goes out to sporting events to cheer on our Lobos, especially when we take on our rivals NMSU.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I love being in the EMT program at UNM, you're offered hands-on opportunities from the get go. It's also easy to fing a place where you can apprentice or observe.

College Freshman

Majors: I haven't found an internship yet, although there are many available to me.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I love academics at UNM. I've personally been in two of the academic programs because of switching majors, but for both i've been offered so much help outside the classroom such as tutoring in Zimmerman library everyday, or special workshops offered to students.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The thing about New Mexico weather is it's unpredictable. One day you can be in shorts and short sleeves, the next you'll be in a winter parka. But hey, that's the desert for you.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms, aren't really located near popular academic buildings, its about a 5 minute walk.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: One thing I love about UNM, is how diverse our campus is. You can find a club for any sport/religion/sexual orientation/academic interests.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Academic strictness is average, however people in the dorms only get in trouble for thing such as alcohol, if some notifies campus police, otherwise, I can name about 20 student who always have alcohol present in the dorms, and on campus.

College Freshman

Nightlife: I'm too involved with my studies to know about 'Nightlife'

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: While on campus, I never feel like anyone is a threat to me, even though we are an open campus.

4 College Senior

Transportation: Transportation services try to be accommodating for all students. While permits can be a bit pricey it is worth the expense because relying on finding a space on campus is almost impossible and outrageously priced. Also, if you think you will get away with parking in spot without paying or displaying appropriate permits you WILL be ticketed.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: A great variety! Prices are always an issue with students I feel, but they are reasonable in comparison to other more expensive restaurants.

5 College Senior

Computers: There are numerous labs and computer stations for students to use. They are constantly updating and sending out surveys to improve the technology on campus. Overall I think that the computers at UNM are excellent. There is always a place to go if needed and you should not feel obligated to buy your own personal computer or printer.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Although I have never personally lived off campus I know many students that have. They greatly enjoyed that their place of residency was in close proximity to the campus and in a good area. By this I mean you are mostly surrounded by fellow students and establishments that are students friendly. The cost can be a bit expensive depending on the area. They tend to me more expensive the closer they are to the university. Parking is not an issue for residents, be sure your friends know where to park when they come to visit you though!

5 College Senior

Majors: Upon entering the University of New Mexico I was not sure which program I would be a part of. Being artistic most of my life I planned on following my passion for art and craftiness. Upon my second year at the university and my 3rd signed language course I changed my career path from art to signed language. I truly found as though I had found my passion and an outlet for my creative abilities. Now upon my graduation in May I am so incredibly thankful to have been a part of the Signed Language Interpreting Program here at UNM. The professors are wonderful and always incredibly helpful. They are always there to inspire and spark creativity and motivation into their students. If I could repeat my stay here at UNM I definitely would. It saddens me to know I will graduate soon and not be a part of the program anymore, but it will always hold a special place in my heart and I have developed life long friends and business partners. The program itself prepares you for a job in the field and introduces you to many different opportunities after graduation.

5 College Senior

Majors: The Signed Language Interpreting Program has a very unique application process. Each year they only accept 15 new majors into the program out of a much larger pool of students. Each year they conduct interviews and students submit application materials such as, letters of recommendation, letter of intent, and application forms. The most important criteria for admission is having a positive attitude and unbiased view on life. If you plan on applying to the program just remember that they are looking for people with a good heart and dedication to sign language and the deaf.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: Need to constantly visit financial aid.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: You need to be young and diverse in order to join GREEK

4 College Junior

Transportation: Very convenient bus system that runs right in front of UNM.

College Junior

Campus Housing: I don't live in Albuquerque.
