There aren't many women.Other
There aren't many women. There is a surprising amount to do in/around Socorro - assuming you don't expect much. Hiking. Stargazing. Rock climbing. Couple of bars. 1 hr to Albuquerque.Its small so you will know nearly everyone: staff, students, faculty.

My college Algebra class is ridiculously tough.AverageEngineering Department
My college Algebra class is ridiculously tough. They cover so much ground in such a short period that I am falling further and further behind. I came here because of the small school size and low student to teacher ratio. But most of my classes are taught by TA's who themselves are working on their thesis and are under great pressure. So they can be impatient and expect you to get everything real fast. I am a non-conventional student and did not have the benefit of a stable life course whereas I would have been able to develop a mathematical foundation earlier in life. Some people in my class have already failed this class twice.

NMT has been an amazing experience!BrightElectrical Engineering
NMT has been an amazing experience! Many departments push the limits (in a good way) and truly want you to learn how to learn what you need to know to succeed in life. All my Professors were approachable and in my department they all knew my name and they would do their best to help you learn (tutoring, extra time in labs, open labs, open door policies, ect). Grading was excellent (hard but fair). Labs were very applicable and they are where I learned the most. Junior and senior design projects were challenging and fun (at the start I was want us to do what??? and in the end I was like "I did that").

I took some other community classes (scuba diving, armor making and stained glass).
Something that I found absolutely amazing is at the job fairs. Most companies/labs were requiring a GPA of 3.5, 3.75 or higher. I would talk to some of the representatives and they would say "turn in a resume." I would say well my GPA is only 3.2 and the reply was in essence "That's ok, we will accept a 2.0 gpa from this school." I heard that from more than one employer!!! and I think that speaks a lot about the quality of employee NMT produces.

Again, I couldn't be happier with my experience at NMT! There wasn't a ton of "night life" or things to do in the town, but that was perfect for me...I needed to study! A lot. The student government put on many fun events throughout the semesters (quality comedians, movies, ...) and there were intramiral sports. I didn't join any of the clubs. The food on campus was fine and the town has like 20 fast food places. I lived in the dorms and they were fine by me.
