Overall Rating

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.

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.
