What do you know now that you wish you knew when entering UNM?
"Yes, there are many opportunities even for a freshman" I probably would have had a better and more productive start if I knew what I could do (both in and out of school) as well as how I could achieve my academic goals more effectively.

What are your favorite events around Albuquerque?
Aside from the concerts, which you could get all over the US, I've really enjoyed some cultural parties (or fiestas) like the gatherings at the plaza in Old Town. I'm also a big fan of the Balloon Fiesta.

What were your expectations about UNM? Were these met?
Before coming to UNM I knew I would have more and better choices than I would ever find at a university back home. Just with the IFDM program alone I had a lot to look forward to. My expectations have actually been exceeded.

What surprised you the most about UNM
The UNM Art Museum in Popejoy, it's great! The variety of exhibitions is impressive. There was even an Andy Warhol Polaroid exhibition once.

Of course […]

Seriously, it’s not worth it. I began this semester stressed out. One of my classes started off right away with a large project, with a little less than a week provided to work on it. Having received little-to-no instructions on how to take on this challenge, I freaked out. I legitimately lost my cool during […]

Ready, set… wait what?

Hello everyone! And welcome back to whatever it is that we’re supposed to be doing. Doesn’t it seem awfully abrupt that the Olympics are suddenly over and now we’re back in school? Are there really no more gymnastics or 200m butterfly competitions to watch to slowly ease us back into these first few days? You […]

Just stopped by to say thank you

I just finished my Junior year here at UNM. Somehow, I will be a Senior next semester, and it’s becoming difficult to wrap my head around that. One is used to expecting to get busier as the years progress, and one would expect to find an increased difficulty in classes and at jobs. But all […]
