This school is even better than excellent inQuite BrightArt & Design Department
This school is even better than excellent in some areas and just average in others. As far as the sculpture department goes,it is the best that I have ever seen. I have gone to the The Academy of Art, Architectur, and Design in Prague and attended the University of New Mexico and this department puts them both to shame. The quality of work produced by the students is amazing and of museum quality.

I enrolled in the now and sensed re-namedNot so brightEducation
I enrolled in the now and sensed re-named Community College of New Mexico and was astounded. The 'average' student was taking 'remedial' courses that they should have taken in h.s. and those in the 'regular/"university"' level classes weren't that much better off; the instructors often had to 'dumb-down' the information or spoon feed it to the class. In more than one class of basic 101 level coursework the instructor would often not follow the book, and present the same material in handouts. One class I vividly recall, the instructor disregarded an excellent intro course book and presented the material using over-simplified, cartoonish [yes the pages had cartoon drawings, and the info was written at the 5th grader level]. Another "instructor' of writing insisted that the work not follow standard writing format, and use only his handed out and 'approved' information failing anyone that didn't. These are but two of the several examples of class settings I experienced.

The Administration is over bearing, dictatorial and unpleasant. What's more, this backwater training school has at all times a greater number of roaming uniformed and in-class 'secret' private security than the several Eastern Blok and Police State countries I visited/lived in. One would think that dissent and debate is expected in a 'higher' education setting, right? I saw a student shouted down, then escorted off the property for disagreeing with a religion instructor over something to do with a certain topic. He was later threatened with religious hate crimes lawsuits, and criminal trespass to keep him away. Stay away from this place.

TVI Community College has been renamed to CentralQuite BrightPsychology
TVI Community College has been renamed to Central New Mexico Community College, or CNM. I have had NOTHING but problems with them since I've been registered. When you are a distance learning student like I am, you pretty much don't matter. I've had problems with the cashier's office charging me TWICE for classes that I didn't even take or register for. I've had problems with getting into classes--as soon as general registration opened, every single class was instantly full. I got into three classes by nothing short of a miracle. I've had problems with my financial aid....sometimes it shows up, and sometimes it doesn't. Whenever I try to call the different offices at CNM, I'm usually on hold for at least twenty minutes before being shuffled around to a bunch of different people and departments, only to be told that nobody can help me. Just recently I ordered two books from the bookstore using my financial aid option and I chose two day shipping. Its now seven days past my original order date and I still have not recieved my books. When I called the bookstore, they pretty much told me that there's nothing they could do. They've also decided to turn off the online ordering using financial aid, so I'm going to have to drive three hours to Albuquerque just to get my last two books. TERRIBLE disorganization, incompetant staff, overcrowded...I can't wait until next fall when my financial aid for the year is up. I'm switching schools as soon as possible.
