  • People here are very friendly and have a smile on their face. I enjoyed taking coffee at starbucks on S.Espina and walked all the way to South-east of the campus. Beautiful Organ mountains on the east...  more »
  • We had the pleasure to visit the Chile Pepper Institute und there Garden. Never saw so many different Chile Peppers in my life. 
  • I studied 1 year and a half at the University. The atmosphere is very nice, has very good libraries, well prepared rooms, restaurants, swimming pools, gym and various sports fields and courts, in addition to having multiple accommodation for students.

  • I wanted my 200th Google Review to be of NMSU. I had a lot of good times here, learned a lot, and made a lot of good friends. Thanks to the education I received here I now live in a giant city full of growth, beaches, big buildings, and perfect weather. I started a tech company that is growing exponentially and might even end up with branches in LC and EP. Thanks NMSU.
  • NMSU suffers from some of the same problems as any state, research university, such as faculty spending more time on research grants than "growing" students. That said, this is an incredible university for various engineering and business programs particularly.
  • Had a visit here as a student, and the experience was brilliant with a great view of the mountains. As an student of Africa, it showed me what an American University looks like in one of its forms, and it was impressive.
  • Went there for undergrad. They have great programs. Tuition is cheap and they really care about students. Much better than UNM which I am currently at for grad school. Have cleaner campus and better business school and gym that doesn't look like it is in Africa. Had great experience and learned a lot and knew department heads by name.
  • I spent 2 years going to college there and the entire staff are wonderful
