NMSU provides many options on campus. There are programs at NMSU and shuttle services that are offered to students to get them to local bars and clubs. This is a great option for students.

I do not have any information about Greek life.

As stated, I work full-time and so am not on campus during the day when most functions are held. Based on my in class experiences, most students seem very accepting and non-judgmental.

I will be applying for financial aid in January as soon as my taxes are complete. However, in speaking with people at the financial aid office in preparation for this, they have been very helpful.

I am a non-traditional student in that I have been attending NMSU off and on for several years, as my finances allow. In the past, when I utilized the computer labs, there were always computers available, the network was fast and reliable. I was able to accomplish what I needed to and leave without feeling rushed or frustrated. As I currently work full-time and take classes in the evening, I do not visit the computer labs as much and rely on my own laptop.

There are soo many diverse cultures on campus. It is so much fun to meet new people especially those like me who ask a lot of questions and are curious about where they are from and who they are as a person.

The school has quite a few computer labs but when midterms and crunch time does come along you have to be there early to get a computer. The wireless is actually quite good and speedy. My computer connects right away. It's nice to be able to sit at one of the common areas have a snack and do your work on your own laptop than in a room with alot of people. The help is wonderful they are all so

The town our school is located is small but growing rapidly. there still is not much to do off campus besides house parties or the local bars or we could head down to the next size town and go to the bars there. There is a lot of hiking and exploring one can do around here but it is more of a small town feeling. Everyone is for the most part friendly. The town is definitely into the college sports so those are supported. Shopping is best taken to the neighboring city.
College Freshman 2013-12-04T07:43:55Z
I don't live on campus. Have notice some new campus housing being built so the buildings aren't that old. Now how they are on the inside I don't know. I have only visited them once or twice and it has been quite a long time ago.
College Freshman 2013-12-04T07:42:32Z
The local weather is great. In the winter the weather usually doesnt get that cold. We don't get snow here so don't have to worry about that. They keep the indoors nice and warm. The summer is great and hot but we have many trees that provide shade. It is an overall beautiful campus that really is not affected much by the weather be it cold or hot.
College Freshman 2013-12-04T07:40:56Z
I don't go out that often but some of the pubs/bars off campus me and some of the girls will go out to and tend to meet up with friends. It's quite a bit of fun, drinks are usually not that expensive, the food is good and there always seems to be a crowd.

Guys & Girls:
The guys at school of course most are younger than I am. They seem to be unsure of themselves and somewhat afraid to approach women. The ones that I have met are nice and funny. Most of the guys seem to be staying fit. They are dressing decently mostly jeans and t-shirts sometimes sweats. I do notice quite a few talking more about what's happening on the weekend more oft than not.

Well the parking is okay. There still seems to be a slight shortage. The free parking is really far from the classes and fill up really quick so most students have to get there really early just to get a good parking. The fines for the tickets aren't that unreasonable. It's about $35. Unfortunately I know this because I received one before I bought my permit. The cost of the permits I think could come down a bit. It is $50 for the year which is actually quite good but for a poor student or single mom of 3 going back to school it is still quite a bit.
College Freshman 2013-12-04T07:32:24Z
They seem to be just like any other safety officer. they really look out for the students and staff, though i do think they take the parking a little too serious. They are around if you need them, very personable and willing to help point you in the right direction. They do take their night duties very serious though since that tends to be when most crimes are committed on campus.
College Freshman 2013-12-04T07:29:40Z
I enjoy the people that I have met. There a huge variety of cultures there. The programs available to students are outstanding though I have not taken advantage of any of them yet. the instructors are all so funny and unique. I have had great instructors that make class more personable and I really like that.
College Freshman 2013-12-04T07:27:51Z
I really don't know too much about the Greek society on campus. I do know they sponsor quite a bit of events but don't hear much about them or from them.
College Freshman 2013-12-04T07:26:30Z
The dining hall is actually nice. It is set up in buffet style and it does have a variety of foods available. Have not used it much but the time I did the food was good, not the best but still good. There was hardly any wait in the areas we wanted to get to and it was kept pretty clean.

Health & Safety:
The police on campus have been very diligent lately. There use to be lots of stories of crimes happening on campus but nowadays they seem to be everywhere keeping an eye on things especially at night. They usually patrol around the whole campus in their vehicles. I feel fine walking around campus.
College Freshman 2013-12-04T05:38:43Z
The interaction I have received from locals were extremely respectful. I don't know, however, if they treated me with respect because I am a student or just an inhabitant of Earth. Nonetheless, locals are very nice.
College Freshman 2013-12-04T05:35:53Z
I don't feel like I am receiving for what I am paying. Even though it is cheaper than most schools, NMSU isn't the best place to be. The food isn't great. The teachers look miserable due to their salaries. I have noticed that the students who enjoy and think highly of NMSU are partiers.
College Freshman 2013-12-04T05:33:30Z
I am not qualified to answer the previous questions due to the fact that I do not attend parties. I am sure I could easily find a party.
College Freshman 2013-12-04T05:31:48Z
I have found many different types of students on campus. Diversity is all around campus from Christians to pagans and libertarians to democrats for example. If an individual, like myself, is looking for diversity, diversity will b found.
College Freshman 2013-12-04T05:27:28Z
I haven't came across any policies that have restricted any of my activities thus far. I have been attending NMSU for a semester and I feel that if I want to do something the door is open for me to do it.

NMSU football team isn't the greatest team. The only team that make any profit is the basketball team. The football team gets criticized most because their funding comes straight out of academics. They also spend around 4 million dollars a year without any income to make up for the spending. The Las Cruces football team provided more fans than the NMSU college team. I came from a high school with poor school spirit and it's very unfortunate that I came to a school that is very similar. A small majority of the student population attend any of the athletic games.
College Freshman 2013-12-04T05:20:09Z
Most places for dining do not offer student discounts. I cannot say that it is expensive because some places do have quality food for cheap. Papa John's does deliver to the dorms and that is extremely convenient.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
