What do you know now that you wish you knew when entering UNM?
Zimmerman Library is actually a great place to study. I mean, it's pretty obvious that a library is a good place to study, but I didn't utilize it as much as I could have when I started at UNM. Sometimes it is hard to focus in your dorm or in your room, and Zimmerman is a great change in scenery. You can just grab a drink from Starbucks and grind out all your homework.
What are your favorite events around Albuquerque?
My all-time favorite event is Balloon Fiesta. I am no morning person and not a fan of the cold, but every year I find myself bundling up and out at Balloon Fiesta Park before dawn to see hundreds of balloons go up with some of my closest friends. It really is a sight to see.
What advice would you give to an incoming UNM student?
There are so many cheap/free events offered to students on campus. Take advantage of that! Everyone knows what it is like to be a broke college student, but that shouldn't stop you from going out and having fun. Keep an eye out for ASUNM events because those are almost always free to students, and typically end up being a lot of fun.
What are you looking forward to most this semester?
I'm looking forward to all the new memories I can make with my friends. Last year, my friends and I took every opportunity possible to explore Albuquerque, and now we have the best memories from that. This year, all my friends and I are back and ready to continue experiencing all UNM has to offer.
