Reviews for New Mexico State University, Main Campus
New Mexico State University located at Las Cruces, NM is great choice to study engineering. I think it is also a very nice school in the way it was built with lots of space and room for expansion and a bus system that goes around all campus. What I like the most of NMSU is its "calm" (not boring) atmosphere and overall security since its police seems to be always be on top of things and ready in case of an emergency. Important events or concerts happen once in a while and are all the hype among most students living in the school dorms.
NMSU offers several programs in which students may compete with other schools and organizations. Many are free to join such as AIAA or ASME or DBF competitions (Design Build Fly). Some professors have many years of research with NASA and The U.S. Air Force and so providing to credibility of good understanding of taught materials. Workload and homeworks might sometimes go a little over the limit but that is part of college anywhere you go. Some classes are 200+ while others include less than 20, it all depends on the subjects and majors. The Engineering Department on the other hand involves more hands on projects and homework and the classes aren't really big (40 maybe) due to the difficulty of engineering.
I don't have much of a social life due to me always studying and doing homework but athletics are also an important aspect of NMSU. I have attended the activity center a few times (the gym) since it is actively encouraged for all students to join athletic clubs and to attend games. I often see clubs organizing activities all around campus or writing invitations to events with colored chalk on the sidewalk.
The professors for the most part are very understanding and kind. I had my daughter last semester and the professors helped me get my work in on time and helped make sure I received notes I may have missed, everyone is very kind and understanding.
There have been a couple of classes and professors that were not very in tune to the students. They taught what was on their notes and left without making any other contact. This was disappointing when leaving a class with a very warm professor. I did notice this behavior came from bigger class sizes. The smaller the class the more attention from the professor.
I am not involved in any campus activities but there are always different activities going on. Every where you look there is sorority and fraternity activities. There are advertisements for different clubs and there are different emails sent out inviting students to game nights, meetings, and study groups. They are very welcoming.
