3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: There's a pretty good variety. I wish you asked about women- I'm a bit more interested in them.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: SHAC has been super useful, fast, and has great quality. Biggest issue is they don't accept Presbyterian except in the pharmacy.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Depending on the greek life- We've had some terrible things happen with SAE. But fraternities like Phi Delta Theta redeem greek life.

4 College Junior

Athletics: They're given more money than any other part of campus.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Though it's wonderful to live near campus, living so close to Central is dangerous and almost all houses and apartments are very poor quality- dirty and have many bugs. I've had my car broken into not one, but four times. And have heard of many break ins. Fortunately my apartment complex has a gate around it.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Albuquerque doesn't have the best food, but I enjoy it. Significantly better than on campus dining. Quite a few healthy options around.

Administration: There aren't horrible policies- unless you're talking about parking and transportation services who are pure evil.

Party Scene: I typically party with Phi Delta Theta. They have parties that aren't outrageous and are a lot of fun. But I'm not much of a party person.

1 College Junior

Scholarships: Financial aid at UNM may be the worst thing I've had to deal with here. They've audited me two years in a row- even though I got them the extra information by their deadline, I was not able to receive the aid I needed because they had already distributed to those who weren't audited. When I brought my paperwork in, every time they needed additional information and it took them several days to a week to inform me I needed to bring more paperwork in.

Campus Food: There are barely any healthy options. They are not accommodating to students with dietary restrictions and force you to buy their meal plan if you live on campus. La Posada has terrible food and there is not a lot of variety.

Campus Housing: The University of New Mexico has terrible housing. The internet is constantly cutting out, some dorms barely have any lighting, others are far too expensive for packing 6 people into one place.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Hard to Find places that are safe and cheap that are close to campus.

3 College Freshman

Academics: Not a huge fan of some of the teachers or classes. But overall my teachers have been nice even if they aren't good professors.

Campus Quality: I don't really like UNM's campus or any of it's architecture. Only pro is it's all compact in area so it's easy to get around.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: Central ave is the most active area around campus. Other than that there's not much around

College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I'm a guy so idk but there aren't very many attractive girls or students in general on campus.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I'll just say I've already been admitted to another school and I'm transferring at the end of the year lol.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: If I could go back to before my freshman year and choose a different school I would. I am already admitted to a different school and I'll be transferring in the Fall and I can't wait. UNM is a big commuter school, not very many students or upperclassmen live on campus(dry campus), there's not much really ever going on, and it's kind of a weird atmosphere. Not the worst school ever, but definitely not the school for you if you're looking for the whole college experience.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Can't say much about this topic, but I don't really see a lot of recruitment for jobs on campus.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: SHAC is pretty accessible, but they don't give a sh*t about you and have had multiple friends mis/under-diagnosed.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Frats and sororities only have parties with other greek people or are very selective. Not sure about any other aspect though.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: If you're coming to UNM for the athletics you're at the wrong school. Our best/most payed attention to sport is basketball and even that we sucked at this year. Sporting events aren't a big deal to people.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: If you're gonna live off campus, it's either Lobo Village, The Cottages, or get a house.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of bars and restaraunts off Central Ave, but nothing open late besides Last Call Burritos or fast food

1 College Freshman

Administration: UNM is a dry campus so if you live on campus you will not be able to have alcohol. Security guards walk around the dorm areas and The RA's do room checks and will make sure you don't have any alcohol, weed, drugs, and even candles. If you like to drink or smoke, then campus is not the place to live/be.
