Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2014

The graduate program at NMSU in Education is easy to get into. Classes are a maximum of 20 people, making it easier to get in contact with the professor. NMSU Campus is gorgeous. Plenty of places to stretch out on the grass in the shade or the sun.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

New Mexico State University offers an amazing learning experience and environment to push your education but only if you are willing to reach out and be proactive in your own learning. The education college is generally supportive and helpful but faculty is not very diverse. Research experience is always available. Overall, The university is a great place to enhance your own learning experience but you have to actively look for social events, diverse faculty, and push for change.

Degree: Chemical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

My main concern about the grad program is tuition fee. I heard from many other university students that the doctorate students need not to pay the tuition fee, but that's not the case here.

Degree: Civil Engineering
Graduation Year: 2018

Studying Civil Engineering at NMSU is the most rewarding experience because one can not find any where as cheap as this school and at the same time with highest quality of education. The faculty is so friendly and it feels like home. Though the city is kind of isolated from the rest of the world, the place is a home to various fun activities.

Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2015

My classes start this fall 2013. However overall the campus is loaded with support networks and helpful staff and students who make the overall experience of being back in school easy.

Degree: Agriculture
Graduation Year: 2016

I feel the pros of my graduate program was the helpfulness of the admission office in answering questions pertaining to the application process. I was able to call and talk to someone who was knowledgable and very friendly. My advisor has also been very helpful in acquiring a TA position. He also advised me on which classes to enroll in and safe places to live off campus. Every person, faculty and administrative, has been very helpful in acquainting me with NMSU. The cons of my graduate program is that scholarship information is not as readily available to everyone. I found applying for scholarships to be difficult.
