4 College Student

Campus Housing: A little expensive compared to renting an appartment, but it is close to classes and school cafeteria. It is very clean. Student neighbors are usually nice and there is something to do every week through RHA.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Way to expensive and not worth paying to hang out with fake friends.

1 College Freshman

Athletics: Privileged and ostentatious is the athletic attitude on campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is awesome because it's cheap, close, and convenient. However you get what you pay for. Make sure you know what you're in for, especially if you live in the student ghetto (Central street bordering campus).

College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't personally chose to party and neither do the people I hang out with. UNM has a pretty legit party scene though if that's what your into. Please don't be stupid and drink and drive or go out by yourself. I have picked up several girls from bad situations that could have been prevented.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The areas bordering Central near campus have fantastic options for food. However be price conscious and make a budget so you aren't spending your entire paycheck on drinks and dinner with friends.

3 College Freshman

Administration: UNM campus PD does not enforce visitation at the dorms on campus, underage drinking is the norm, UNM parking can be confusing so make sure you read and follow and posted signs/regulations. However the parking office is very helpful in answering questions. Get ready to have at least one parking citation while you go to school here if your not very vigilant.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: I am having a very hard time receiving any financial aide from UNM. I have maxed out my credit cards trying to pay for tuition and various fees that are not covered by the lottery scholarship, however I am determined to finish nursing school so i am persevering on. The best tips I can give is to be very persistent with the financial aide office and make sure you cross check information with other students. (I have been given inaccurate information on several occasions). My adviser also encouraged me to make sure I am speaking with someone from advisement and not the other side of the office which is enrollment. The enrollment side of the office does not have the most current information and could advise you wrong.

Campus Food: The SUB and the small mercado's (convenience stores) around campus are fantastic for a quick bite to eat between classes. However, eating lunch at the SUB adds up fast, if my boyfriend and I eat at the sub everyday for lunch we spend an average of 15$, over a weeks time that is over $70! The Mercado has fast healthy snacks/small meals that aren't overly expensive.

Campus Housing: I lived on campus my freshman year, the dorms at my school are expensive! I saved $1300 this year alone by moving off of campus into my own apartment. The dorms at my school badly need to be renovated, the rooms are tiny with a bad bug problem and plumbing that was under maintenance daily during my time on campus. The only perks of living in the dorms was the closeness to my classes, and getting to live with my best friend.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: i enjoy having my own place.

College Sophomore

Party Scene: i focus on class i don't go to parties

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: i don't go to on campus for food.

College Sophomore

Campus Food: I don't buy food on campus.

College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I live in Farmington, NM and I'm an online student through University of New Mexico.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Most of the food is made fairly well. I would say that the SUB offers the most variety, with coffee, pizza, and sub sandwiches.

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.
