Gorgeous campus

A very nice campus for an easy stroll. Enjoyed stopping to watch the ducks at the pond. Great native plants and rolling hills.

UNM is a hot-bed of liberalism, and conservative minded individuals should avoid the intolerant environment of the liberal staff of so-called educators.

It is a beautiful campus. It offers students an education and provides my events to make them feel at home. Eligibel students should consider UNM for their education.

The school offers a variety of majors and the medical school is ranked 34 at this time. It is a good school and they always have activities going on.

A beautiful campus to tour. The architecture and scenery are marvelous as is the history of the campus. The university libraries are excellent. There are many places to sit and relax and enjoy the scenery and sunshine. Also, there are plenty of good restaurants around the campus area.

The UNM Art Museum has significant photography collections that are worth seeing. There are also several O'Keeffes as well as a wide range of other major art works. Worth an hr or so when you are in the area.

Love the campus is all the adobe style buildings. Easy to get where you want to go just follow maps or signs. Lots of activities going on during the school year. Got to catch a Volleyball game in "The Pit" everyone we encountered was welcoming and friendly. Enjoy visiting Albuquerque plenty to do and love the climate

Beautiful campus with lots of great eateries nearby. Immaculately maintained grounds. There were not a lot of students around due to the weekend holiday but it was nice not having such a crowd.
