What does it mean to be a Lobo?
It means someone who is dedicated and, more importantly, it means you are member of a pack of people who are dedicated just like you, and everyone is willing to help you out.

What do you want to accomplish before leaving UNM?
I want to make memories that I will be proud of for the rest of my life, and I want to leave here knowing I made this campus a better place.

What are your favorite events on campus?
Fiestas, by far is the coolest event on campus. Fiestas is when one of the student government agencies hosts a music festival with well known bands on Johnson Field after Spring Storm, UNM's community service event.

How can students make college memorable?
By getting involved. You won't remember the times you spent in your room watching TV, but you will remember the activities you join during your college years.
