4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Central New Mexico community college has a good environment and good professors.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Since it is a small school, there are only so many of one class offered, and not all campuses offer the same classes, so you could end up having to go to multiple campuses each semester. My first semester was all at one campus. Second semester I was at one campus on Mondays and Wednesdays, and a different campus on the other side of town on Tuesdays and Thursdays. For the special programs, they are typically only offered at the South Valley or Main Campuses, which are the farthest ones from where I live, which is kind of frustrating.

Overall Experience: CNM wasn't my first choice of school (not that I really had a desired school in mind), but it was the only one I found in-state that had a veterinary technology program (although now I am aware that there are one or two other programs, but I am not sure they are accredited, and they are much more expensive than CNM's VT program) . There are things I don't like about the school, but now that I am actually in the program, I am pretty satisfied with it.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The overall quality of the courses I have taken has been pretty good. There has been a professor or two that I didn't really like very much, but for the most part I have liked my professors. There is a decent variety of classes offered, but not as much as I would like. The class sizes are pretty small, probably with an average of about 20 students. Some classes have as many as 50, some as few at 12. It just depends on the class, really.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Job prospects for registered veterinary technicians are pretty good, I think. New Mexico is lacking in RVTs, and CNM has a great Veterinary Technician program.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: I am definitely a class room learner. I've taken a couple of online classes, but I don't think they have benefited me as much as if I had taken the class in a class room. Part of the problem is because I was only taking them because I needed a certain number of credit hours, but my program schedule was a little funky, so the only way I could get all of my credits was by online classes. My opinion might be different about the matter if I was taking an online class I was actually interested in.

The workload hasn't been terrible. The registration process is the same as for classroom classes. There is not as much of a professor/student relationship.

3 College Junior

Student Body: Most of the students at this school are adults coming back to college after having started a family or something. There are some fresh out of high school students getting their pre-reqs out of the way before transferring to a 4 yr college or university. I think most of the student body is Hispanic, which makes sense since we are in New Mexico. I also think that a lot of the students are not super wealthy. Most of them are probably Democrat. This is all just speculation and I have not done any research to back this stuff up.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Since it is a community college, the costs are relatively inexpensive. If you are fresh out of high school, you can get the Bridge to the Lottery Scholarship and the Lottery Scholarship if you take a certain number of credits and maintain a certain GPA, but in order to keep the Lottery for more than 3 semesters you have to transfer to a 4yr college, which I just recently found out and which I why I am filling out this survey.

Overall, I think the amount and quality of education received is really good for the price that you pay. Books are still ridiculously expensive, though. I stopped buying them from the CNM bookstore whenever possible.

3 College Junior

Career Services: I don't really know all that much about this area, but from what I heard, graduates are always welcome to come back and get help from the Job Connection Services and other services offered.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: I am in the veterinary technology program at CNM, and I love it! It's a lot of hard work and a lot of information to take in, but it is really cool :) The professors are awesome. The workload is fairly heavy, but manageable. The curriculum is good. The facilities could be better, but I think they are working on improving them. Once you finish the program and pass the national and state exams, I think it will be relatively easy to find a job, especially in New Mexico, which is where the program is located.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Most of the professors that I have had have been really good and they genuinely care for the students and want them to succeed. All of them know their stuff, although some of them are better at communicating that than others are. The curriculum overall is pretty good. The class registration process is ok, although for getting into the coordinated entry programs can be tricky and stressful because they don't have a cap on who is eligible to apply, but they only have 25 or 50 (depending on which program) openings, so if you aren't at the computer and logged in right at the scheduled time, you don't even have a chance of getting in because they can fill up in less than 20 seconds.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: CNM has five campuses, and I have attended three of them. The newer campuses definitely have nicer facilities and landscaping, but they are all decent. There are no athletic centers, but there are student resource centers at every campus (as far as I know, anyway), and there are libraries and study areas at every campus, although some are more extensive than others.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: They a great job in maintaining student centers, the library, and our resource center. We do not have an athletic center or much campus activities. The aesthetics of our school are somewhat nice, they administration keeps it maintained and looking nice.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: We have a great student resources center, which has free tutoring, a computer lab, and a library. We have a great cafeteria.

Campus Resources: its not a bad school. I don't really care for the class sizes but I have to tough it.

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: The campus has a nice mix of younger students and older students like myself. The people that work here at the campus are friendly and helpful.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: This is a community college. There are few additional resources. Each campus has a student center and library.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I was placed into a combined UNM/CNM dual nursing degree program. My courses, days and times are preselected for me.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: The nursing program at the Rio Rancho campus is very well equipped. The program could use some structuring work (organization)

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: Courses are offered at multiple locations and at many different times for convenience

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: Great library! Has everything you need like computers and books. Even if the library doesn't have a certain book , they can still get it for you.

3 College Freshman

Student Body: The student body doesn't often associate outside of classes, but the debates and communications in the classrooms can be quite effective and interesting.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: CNM is amazing and such an easy school to work with.
