4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The College is pretty small. This is most likely of the fact that it is a 2-year based college but it makes it much better for meeting new people.

1 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My husband and I had the worst experience with this school. What should have taken us 2 years took us 4. We were misadvised. They even had to back graduate my husband because they had him in the wrong classes and the wrong major. The teachers are under educated and you do not really learn all I feel you should about your subject. I recommend going any where but here. The financial aid department is just as clueless as the advising department. They stick the 'newbies' in the front from work study so if you call in with a general question you will not get an appropriate answer. The One good advisor they have is only there a couple times a month. They will over award you in finanical aid, and do not check every semester, which will leave you back paying for 2 semesters for their mistakes. I highly recommend against going to this school... and NMSU main campus because it is just as bad! My husband had to get a general degree because they misadvised him so bad they did not even have him in the right degree catagory. Also... Do Not... I repeat.. DO NOT go by their degree audit like the advisors tell you... they are all wrong! 5 thumbs down for this school!!!

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Not the best college, but a college. NMSU-Alamogordo is not nearly as good as NMSU.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I've had a wonderful time at school so far.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's been mostly positive with just a few classes/teachers being subpar. Classes are interactive, relatively small, and highly educational.

4 College Freshman

Student Body: In my experience the student body seems to consist largely of older students, that is, students who are not coming straight from high school. That makes sense considering that it is a community college. I've seen a lot of diversity with about half of students being hispanic and slightly more than high being women. Most students come from a lower socioeconomic status from what I gather.

4 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: Tuition is relatively low at about $1000. Financial aid is available based on need.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I'm a dental hygiene major and am still working through the pre-requisites. Classes are interesting and fun for the most part. The workload is manageable, definitely on the light side. Jobs and internships opportunities are hard to find.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Sixty percent of the teachers have been great, 30% are average, and 10% unfortunately, have been highly unsatisfactory. Advisors are helpful, especially with registration. Tutors are available for many subject areas.

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: Computer labs, libraries, and free printing are available. East Mesa branch is attractive though it feels dead due to being a relatively small campus.

2 College Senior

Overall Experience: The career center/services on campus is virtually nonexistent.

Campus Resources: The library is functional. We have no other resources besides the student center which houses a pool table and little else.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: Online courses are typically harder than classroom courses. The quality of the instruction largely depends on the instructor. Online classes are great for people with tight schedules that need to work at odd times.

3 College Junior

Student Body: The typical student at my school is career oriented and doesn't participate in many extracurricular activities.

2 College Junior

Academic Experience: Because of accreditation issues surrounding my school's nursing program, students pursuing this degree program encounter huge amounts of confusion and frustration. The school was not upfront with applicants about it's disappearing program and advisers signed people up for classes that were not useful for their degree plan.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: This is a two year college so it has a limited number of academics offered.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: The classes are reasonably flexible and the instructors are usually willing to work with your schedule. Academic advisers are difficult to work with due to their lack of education on the prerequisites required for each specific degree plan. Students are better off researching their own degree requirements and advising themselves.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: The campus offers several locations where you can work and study with computer stations. Most of the places have printers and copy machines, so that it is not a hassle to get your work done on time in a quiet and comfortable setting.

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: The campus has fast internet and many locations where open computer stations are available to work at. You can go to the library, academic support center, computer lab, and even student services. They also provide a cyber lounge where you can get wifi and do your school work on your own personal computer.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: NMSUA offers free tutoring on any subject you are studying. You just have to go to the academic support center and there are several available tutors without an appointment. They also help with proofreading your essay and give you fantastic input to better your papers.

2 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: I was not given much information about the state of my scholarship and had to find out on my own.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: In persona classes are always better.

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: The student body at my school is diverse. Most are female and there is a lot of minority representation. Most are seeking two year degrees.

1 College Junior

Online Courses: There really weren't any unique features. The workload was horrific. The professor/student relationship is pretty much nonexistent. There was some level of peer-to-peer interaction which was nice.
