5 College Student

Campus Housing: Everybody is friends with eachother.

4 College Student

Athletics: There is a lot of school spirit.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: The resources it provides as well as the professors and admissions.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: there is a lot of diversity. this campus is actually strangely diverse in comparison to most I've been to. there isn't a real 'campus life' its more a bunch of small groups that vary in so solo many ways

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: its visible, especially greek life.. but its gonna be like that everywhere. you choose what you do with that availability. no one cares if you do it or not ultimately (besides authorities) but i promise it will be offered to you multiple times

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: When you hear about big universities, you may think that there will be a lot of really huge classes but in reality, I've only had one really big class and I feel like even then, the professor and TAs were really accessible. The courses are really great if you're interested in the topic and there is a lot to choose from. All the classes are a bit different too which is nice because there are a variety of teaching styles that are in use. I think UNM is a pretty great school.

Campus Housing: I live in Laguna 1 in a suite. I had a roommate but she moved into the single across the hall and now I have a room to myself. I see my suitemates and my ex-roommate sometimes and we all get along very well but we aren't really friends. I can honestly say that I don't think I'm friends with anyone in my building. It's very nice in some respects, like we always have a nice clean bathroom and I never have to wait for a shower or anything like that but if you wanted to cook something or do your laundry you have to go all the way down into the basement. I like that our laundry machines are coinless but it also sucks that we only have six in total for three buildings of people and they are usually occupied by the time that I need to do my laundry. I think that Laguna is a nice place to live but I really wish that I would have lived in Hokona (where most of my friends live) because it has a more social environment and all of their activities seem more fun than ours. Hokona has bigger rooms but they also have to share bathrooms with their entire floor but I've had a lot of friends tell me that they don't ever wait for a shower. Another thing that I like about Hokona is that they have kitchenettes on each floor. As for the worst place to live, I'm not really sure about that. I don't think that I would want to live in Coronado, I guess because not only do they have to share bathrooms with their entire floor, but they also live alllll the way across campus which would suck when you have to go to class.

Greek Life: I honestly don't know much about them. I know someone who was in a fraternity and when he talks about it, he's usually referring to the social aspects of it but I know that some of the Greeks really try to make a difference and that's always good. But I do know that a majority of them aren't really there to do community service or anything like that. I don't think much about them but some of my friends really don't like them because they perceive them as snobby but I really haven't seen anything to be upset about.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The classes that I'm taking are great. I even got really into politics because of my political science. I feel like I know more than I ever have before and I'm looking forward to taking more classes here. Even the classes that I wasn't really excited about taking (math and science) actually ended liking. I feel like you do need to plan carefully and make sure that your class will be bearable before you get in too deep though. My first Semester, I had to switch out of a calculus class because I couldn't understand the teacher (she had a very thick accent and wasn't very comprehensive). But besides the classes, I like that there a lot of events going on all of the time and you get to see really cool things. I love the Duck Pond and all of the performers who are always here. I don't necessarily know what makes UNM unique because I've only been to this college but if I was to choose again, I think I would choose UNM. Really the only drawback is that UNM is kind of expensive but apparently according to other people that I've met out of state, the cost isn't really too bad.

Health & Safety: Being on campus when it is dark outside is very unsettling. It is absolutely terrifying to walk alone on campus at night. There is not sufficient lighting nor enough security walking around on campus, yet they have multiple security guards inside the library at all times. It is also very concerning that we have a public campus so homeless people can often be seen digging through the trash and have been known to harass students for money on multiple occasions. We also get alerts at least once a week that say that someone has been robbed on campus or that a girl has been sexually assaulted and they happen in the middle of the day in public. I am usually just very wary of walking alone on campus at all times because of how unsafe I feel when I am alone here.

Overall Experience: School mat UNM is really not that bad, I do enjoy some classes and I am excited to start in the Speech and Hearing Sciences program soon because I think it will be more interesting and people care more about the classes. Certain classes I absolutely hate and I feel as though the professors do not care at all about their students learning or success in the class. I wish that I had more classes where professors actually cared because it feels like such a waste of time and money when they do not care at all.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I honestly do not know how well my degree will be accepted by other schools or potential future employers but I do know that I will have to attend Graduate school. I feel as though I have never seen anyone who are recruiting future employees on campus and I honestly do not know how much weight is held by the programs here other than the Anderson School of Management.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: I really enjoy Greek Life here at UNM. I am part of the Pi Gamma chapter of Chi Omega here and I absolutely love it. We try to be very involved in the community and with our philanthropy which is the Make A Wish Foundation. We also have a pretty good relationship with the other chapters on campus and I really love how many wonderful people that I have met through the Greek Community. I think that while Greek Life on campus isn't as big as it is in other places, it is still incredibly enjoyable and is a great way to become more involved on campus and people who aren't a part of it who say that it's just a way for people to pay for their friends don't really understand the amount of things you become involved in and all of the really exciting and incredible events that you get to be involved in.

Athletics: I really don't pay much attention to sports at school. It seems as though the world revolves around the basketball team and honestly they aren't even that great. Also I think it is very unfair how much money is spent on the sports teams when it could be used other places that need the money more than those teams do. The facilities for sports on campus are very nice too, the Pit has the practice gym for the basketball team and it is ridiculous how nice it is considering a decent amount of UNM's campus does not care about sports at all.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Some aspects of life at UNM are really great. I personally love the Greek life community that I have recently become a part of. I also work on campus at CAPS, the tutoring center here on campus, and it is a really welcoming environment and I am really thankful to be able to work there. The thing that I really hate about school here though is that it seems as though some professors really don't care about how they teach or if their students will succeed or not. When I came into college, I expected to learn so much more than I did in high school and I was so excited to learn specifically towards the field that I wanted to work in in the future. But here at UNM, I feel as though some professors really don't care about teaching students material and I can honestly say that this year I have not really learned because the professors that I have had have not cared about teaching.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Very safe place, well kept up, and it is very Eco-friendly.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I haven't really gotten involved with any of this so I don't really know.
