Anyone who knows me knows that if I am doing something I am usually all in; so obviously I stan UNM. I come from a small town in Southeast New Mexico so coming to Albuquerque was a complete culture shock, and I loved it. I came from a town where there was legitimately nothing to do to a city where I have the opportunities to do whatever my heart desired. Of course, I took every advantage I could possibly get causing my life at UNM has been very eventful so far.
When I wasn’t in the classroom, my freshmen year was spent exploring Albuquerque and Northern New Mexico. Since I was a member of the Lobo Life, I was able to visit some of the most beautiful places New Mexico has to offer. Because of the Lobo Life, I have gone on trips I never even imagined going on like hiking through the snow only to swim in a boiling hot spring at the top. I was also heavily involved in ASUNM—UNM’s undergraduate student government. I planned huge events on campus including Fiestas—our annual music festival that saw over 10,000 attendees last year.
My friends and I came back and better than ever causing sophomore year to be any less eventful. While I catch myself in Zim a little more this semester, my adventuring has yet to cease. Luckily for me, a few of my classes have some fun field trips outside of Albuquerque—I know who knew field trips continued in college? Regardless, I still love going to events on campus and seeing all that New Mexico has to offer.
During my time, here at UNM, I have made the best possible memories with the best possible people, and more are yet to come. So stay tuned!
