New Mexico Highlands University is a great school for those living in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I love that it offers students the opportunity to get a Bachelors or Graduate degree. Instead of having to drive all the way to Las Vegas, New Mexico, students from all over the state can take classes from their computer or at a Higher Learning Center where teachers are on a TV screen. This is convenient in so many ways.

I love the school. I have grown so much as a person and made amazing connections because of the opportunists given to me at NMHU.

People are very friendly and everyone is always willing to help one another. I love how many computer labs we have on campus and the fact that they are free printing is amazing.
