What is campus life like?
Campus life is very relaxing and calm for the most part. There is always something to do on campus from hanging out by the duck pond to doing tricks on a long board across Smith plaza. People are very friendly and welcoming and one thing I love about UNM is that it is so diverse. You are able to meet people from all over the country and from out of the country, making a new friend everywhere you go.

What surprised you the most about UNM?
What surprised me the most is that UNM is such a supportive school and there are so many resources, programs and organizations provided for us as students. It surprised me that UNM has such an incredible support system and there are so many people who want to see and help students succeed in everything they do. UNM is a school that shows that people matter.

What’s your best UNM experience so far?
My best UNM experience so far has by far being an orientation leader and being a campus tour guide. Both jobs are very similar and I get to do what I love most which is working with people and share my experiences. I learned so much about myself, grew as a person and got to be one of the first faces incoming freshman meet entering UNM.

What does it mean to be a Lobo?
To be a Lobo means to be someone who strives for greatness and is always willing to learn. A Lobo is someone who cares for other lobos, never leaving another Lobo behind. We stay in a pack and leave a lasting impact everywhere we go, we never give up but continue to move forward and accomplish our goals.
