I like UNM, as while I have had some "eh" teachers in the lower-division courses, the professors teaching the upper-division coursework are experts and passionate about their fields.

I love UNM! It's given me opportunities that I would not receive else where. The school has helped me financially so there would be no way for me to leave my studies. Here, I am making my dreams a reality!

They say that college is a time when you are on your own, but with all of the whose interest is to help us students, I don't feel alone because there is always someone that I can talk to.
