What do you know now that you wish you knew when entering UNM?
When entering UNM, I wish that I knew that classes fill up fast! Emailing professors and planning out your schedule is so helpful especially if you are like me, from out of state and at the last New Student Orientation, and there are no open spots at the time of registration in the classes you initially wanted.

What are your favorite events around Albuquerque?
I loved going to the International Balloon Fiesta! I have never been to Albuquerque and this was hands down the best event I have been to since arriving in Albuquerque! I also loved traveling to Santa Fe and seeing the cute boutiques and restaurants there.

What advice would you give to an incoming UNM student?
I would say that everyone else is going through the same thing you are. Regardless of the circumstances, this is new territory for everyone so ask so many questions and don’t be afraid to laugh at yourself because we are all learning the ropes.

What are you looking forward to most during this semester?
I am looking forward to the Hanging of the Greens, a UNM holiday tradition! It is the oldest student tradition and is one of the largest luminaria displays. This is something I can’t wait to not only see, but be apart of!

Fall semester begins right around the corner as we embark on the weeklong move in process. Since I was a summer resident who opted for interim housing, I could move in on Thursday but had a pretty quick turnaround. A lot of the SRC apartment buildings had to get moved out of and cleaned fast […]

It started on Wednesday and went through Sunday where there were concerts, street vendors and tons of people out and about enjoying the entertainment. Each event went from about 5:00 pm to 10:00 pm.

The summer semester ends on the 27th of July. I have realized just how much I have enjoyed my summer because of the long list of assignments I have a week to do them. Of course, you could be the person to just not procrastinate but I can tell you since college started, I have […]

For a little bit, I thought the heat wave in ABQ would not come for a good amount of time. With all the thunder and lightning storms, June was pretty cool. And everyone told me, Spring is windy, July is hot, and after it’s monsoon season. I definitely remember monsoon season when I first came […]
