3 College Freshman

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

4 Recent Alumnus

Local Area: The University of New Mexico is located in Albuquerque where there is a strong respect of cultural diversity. There were always many things to see and lots of learn! I enjoyed my time there!

4 College Senior

Local Area: I absolutely love living an Albuquerque. It's not too big, and there are tons of outdoor recreation spots to enjoy. Also it is a generally liberal and friendly community, which makes interactions with neighbors mostly pleasant.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: Not a lot of events going on. Rather dangerous at night. Great for people that like a more quiet atmosphere.

3 College Senior

Local Area: There are three malls and a lot of small shops around and a lot of events promoting the small shops shopping. The attractions would be the Break Bad tour, The Pit, Sandia mountains, Old Town. Their are a high amount activities such as rock climbing, trampoline park, small amusement park, hiking, tramway, etc. There are a lot of festivities like Hanging of the Greens, Salsa Tasting, Parades, Ghost hunts, Gathering of the Nationals, State Fair, Balloon Glow, etc. Albuquerque is very diverse with different cultural events. Students attitudes are alright, Albuquerque has more the other cities in New Mexico so some are impressed but other students from big cities think Albuquerque is more calm. The safety is kind of low at some areas then others so be care where you go at certain times.
