4 College Senior

Majors: Getting into the Nuclear Engineering program was easy! I first applied to the School of Engineering, and was later accepted into the School of Chemical and Nuclear Engineering.

4 College Senior

Nightlife: There are many bars and dance clubs to attend, and at least a few to satisfy any drink or scene someone might wish to experience.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of options, but the better options tend to be more expensive.

4 College Senior

Facilities: UNM is up-to-date and has been modernizing the campus for the pasty decade. New labs and renovations help to make the campus look great and to increase the efficiency of the students utilizing the spaces.

5 College Senior

Academics: UNM has an excellent Nuclear Engineering program and I am quite thankful for all my teachers expertise. New Mexico has a strong and proud history with Nuclear power, and two of the country's leading nuclear physics laboratories- Los Alamos and Sandia National Labs. UNM hires a lot of these experts to come and teach us aspiring Nuclear engineers.

5 College Senior

Academics: UNM offers one of the best education opportunities in the country. Many experts from the neighboring national labs come and teach the students, which is a great first-hand experience to learn of the engineering field and opportunities. The best part is having a small experimental nuclear reactor in the department on campus.

4 College Senior

Diversity: People from all over the world come to UNM to study and brighten their future and the world. The foreign exchenge program is well implemented and easy to apply.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: The UNM Hospital is one of the best in the country. My friend had a brain tumor removed and is alive today, thanks to UNMH.

4 College Senior

Athletics: The UNM Men's Basketball Team is great, they make it far in regional tournaments every year and many people attend the games.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are call boxes set up around campus, well lit pathways, and you can even call for a free escort across campus if you are uncomfortable with being alone.

5 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The new meal plans that have been put into effect make sure you get plenty to eat whenever you want and can even bring a few friends/family members who aren't a part of a plan.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I've heard wonderful things from all of my friends about their experiences with Greek Life and the members are open and friendly, even if you're not a part of their group.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: Albuquerque is a big city and there is always something interesting to do whether it be on or off campus.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: UNM has a very accepting community in which we are encouraged to be all that we are and whoever we are. We are there to find ourselves.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Honestly the best situation for UNM Financial Aid would have to be if you are an in-state student. They have plenty of scholarships to help cover the cost of attending college, but it can be rough for out-of-state students like myself.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Albuquerque loves their Lobos from UNM and even offer special discounts and services to students!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Although I'm still fairly new to UNM I've fallen in love with the teachers, the community, the campus, the classes. Everything. It's a wonderful school.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: UNM is a flagship university so acquiring a degree from this university opens up many doors that could have possibly been closed to you before.

4 College Freshman

Academics: There are many other people who are coming to learn the same thing as you so it's easy to get the extra help you may need.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The teachers genuinely love their job and in turn their students, which makes for a great learning environment.

4 College Freshman

Majors: With many different degrees and majors you can easily find the road to your success, or even discover something you never knew you were able to do.

4 College Freshman

Majors: The teachers are willing to give you the help you need and take into consideration things that are happening outside of the classroom as well.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I absolutely fell in love in the apartment style dorms I'll be living in this year, and hopefully for the rest of my college career. My dorm is close to the dining hall, my classes, and great outdoor study areas!

3 College Sophomore

Academics: I dont have much experience because im only a second year student but so far my academics have been great. there were a couple professors who weren't all that responsive but its okay. the workload was definitely hard to adjust to but there are so many places on campus to study and so much help groups and study groups.
