Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2013

A very close knit campus in Albuquerque; NMHU is better suited towards the adult or working student who is focused on their academic progress and career goals.

I enjoyed taking classes here! The Professors are nice and helpful! I took online classes and classes in Rio Rancho as well. There was plenty of time for discussion in class and questions. The texts that were required for class were helpful and informative!

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

I wish that the professors knew more about their content area and practiced a higher degree of professionalism. I am getting a degree in Clinical Rehabilitation Counseling and I have had experience with counseling myself and am currently undergoing therapy. This is because I have always valued therapy as a process to explore my challenges and strengths, my feelings and behaviors and my goals and aspirations. Many of the professors gave wrong information and I could have taught the classes better. The classes should ne taught by experienced professors who have worked in the field enough to find what really works and see results.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2015

The Public Affairs program at my University is very good since it gives the students a different feel for politics. The pros are that the University's student body is very diverse and it helps the program with different ideologies. The professors in the program are specialized in different fields and students are exposed to those fields such as international politics, state and local government, and law. Students are able to experience a very personal relationship with the professors unlike bigger Universities. The program also helps the students find jobs or internships in the political world. The cons would be that the program has little money or resources to offer the students. At times students may have to leave the program since it is to expensive for students to stay in school. There is very few students that are interested in politics and the Public Affairs needs to approach more students to enter the program. Overall the Public Affairs program is a good program and I love being part of Highlands University.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

My experience with NMHU School of Social Work has been excellent! I would recommend this program to anybody because of the high quality of education it provides. NMHU has made possible that I continue with my Graduate education goals in the comfort of my community by providing numerous campus branches in different cities in the state of NM. Thankfully, in the Roswell NM campus we have low ratio of students to teachers and their availability for help is immense. One of the down falls of this however, is technology. Since, NM is such a Rural state, different sites relay on ITV instruction and that sometimes fails or makes it difficult for students in those areas to be in constant communication with the instructors or other peers.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

Highlands seems to take an interest in their students and try to help them out as much as possible. I enjoy this university and see it as a place where myself, and anyone can thrive as a student and advance their educational studies.
