3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Living here my whole life id have to say that Albuquerque is beautiful. Its not an enormous city but the environment is homey and full of culture and color. There isn't much of a party scene but attractions include many museums, art, historic sites, and nature. Safety is average depending on what part of Everyone just does their own thing.the city you live but its not too bad. and attitude toward students isn't really existent.

3 College Student

Local Atmosphere: The atmosphere on campus is nice and comforting but once you step off campus, it can be a bit scary but it not located in the best part of town.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Other than the city planning looking like a toddler threw their toys on he floor, the city has life and ironically heavy criminal activity in most areas that are kept hush hush.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Location of the University is in a poor part of town.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There is so much to do in the city and endless opportunties. The mountains are a great view and place to go hiking.
