I have a video of a few things you didn't know about this school and for future students to take precautions before coming here. Watch the NMHU CAMPUS TOUR VIDEO: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CSQejVGh54k and the NMHU CONFESSIONS VIDEO: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lsTGraPCkr8


Student at This School - Grad Year 2016

Overall Rating

Freedom of speech: I think dean Fidel Trujillo is a heartless human being who only cares about the school's image rather than the safety and feelings of the students. I am pretty sure he covers up crime statistics as I was told by someone who was investigating the school. Some people in the student senate tried to get him fired and they either got expelled or left the school on their own terms. NMHU for you baby!!!
