Was at the university for a workshop this past week. got to see a fair amount of campus. it has nice grassy areas to walk in, interesting architecture, fountains and ponds, a free shuttle bus, and great restaurants just south of the campus.

Interesting sculptures line the paths of the University. Much is still the same as when I attended in the 80s.

We had to see this campus, and we were pleased with how beautiful it is. An oasis. We drove the parameter and were pleased with the access to the campus. Park and take a walk to enjoy the layout of this gem.

Being an East Coast person, I was super impressed with this lovely campus. Learned there was a deliberate effort made to ensure this campus represented the New Mexican heritage. It is right in town, close to shops, restaurants and nice neighborhoods.

UNM has several campuses, even within ALB, and several museums open to the public. Architecture is Pueblo Revival and the landscaping is as educational as it is lovely. We visited a couple museums but our favorite was the Maxwell Museum of Anthropology on Redondo Drive....More
