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.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: I dont have a specific major. But alot of people seem to know what they want to do which is inspiring.

3 College Student

Academics: The registration process can be a bit confusing and crazy especially when you are not meeting with an advisor one on one when you are registering. As for the professors and classes, they all seem to be nice and the classes are geared toward your degree.

4 College Student

Academics: My major program is one the biggest programs in the school and the facilities are all modern with up to date technology that makes it easier to work with.

5 College Senior

Academics: The academics at UNM are great the professors that I have had have been nothing but helpful and willing to help in anyways possible. The curriculum I think is fair as the overall required one and then once in your degree program the classes that you have to take are fair as well.
