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.

I’ve got a travel bug

The past couple weeks have been filled with homework, traveling, and almost no time to write, but here I am, ready to update you.  To tell my story, I’ll have to go back a couple weeks to when all the insanity started. In an effort to end the month of February filled with love and […]

Snow Day

Everyone on campus understands the chaos going on lately. Midterm season has kicked off, so people have been studying away and being insanely stressed. To make it even worse, it has been insanely cold on campus, and speaking from a girl who is used to the heat, I am suffering.  Because of this, the snow […]

Let’s Talk Lottery

New Mexico’s State Legislature is in full swing, and while that might not mean a lot to most people, it’s something that always seems to spark my interest. This past Monday, January 28, was UNM Day at the Roundhouse—which meant staff, faculty, and students made their way up to Santa Fe in hopes of convincing […]

Back to the Grind ‘Bos.

Well, Lobos, I don’t know about you, but winter break was everything I needed. After a long and draining dead week and finals week, I left Albuquerque for the month. I traveled home, went on road trips, and slept a whole lot. It was exactly what I needed to refresh. But this post is not […]

Dead Week

So, it’s dead week, and let me tell you, this year’s dead week is hitting me like a brick. I’ve basically moved into Zim, and I’m surviving off of coffee and Red Bull. Luckily for me, my classes don’t have any multiple-choice exams, so finals week will be a breeze for me. Unluckily for me, […]
