Well friends, I am excited to let you know that I have successfully finished my undergraduate studies at UNM! In a few weeks (well more like 8 or 12) I’ll be receiving my diploma in a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and I am elated.
I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to pursue both art and science together through the Interdisciplinary Film and Digital Media (IFDM) program, and I cannot believe how amazing were the Honors College seminars I attended. I truly felt like I received a well-rounded education thanks to the variety of courses, both in nature and in content.
The culture at UNM was also extremely welcoming to me, and I am so happy to have attended a hispanic-serving institution. Fleeing your home country out of fear is an unpleasant journey, but the people and the values at UNM definitely made this transition bearable.

El Centro de La Raza at UNM hosts a special graduation ceremony every semester. Half of it was in Spanish! It was a very charming, detail-oriented ceremony, and it was a pleasure to participate in.

I know I’ll be missing the student life and the people I’ve met at UNM, but I am also glad to be moving on. I’ll be taking some time off school for this coming year, but I hope to come back for a Masters! So maybe we will be seeing each other soon.
Thank you for these wonderful 5 years!
All the best,
Beatriz
