I graduated in Agricultural

Aug 20 2014Other
I graduated in Agricultural Biology, which is offered by the Department of Entomology Plant Pathology and Weed Science. It is a small department with great faculty and very successful graduates. I feel this experience shaped my career.

NMSU has its problems, as pointed out by

Sep 22 2014Agriculture/Horticulture
NMSU has its problems, as pointed out by many. However, ACES (the agriculture college) is one of NMSU's best features. I majored in Ag Biology and found the program to be rigorous, the faculty excellent, the advising excellent, and the program is also excellent. Plant and Environmental Sciences is pretty good while Fish, Wildlife and Conservation Ecology is notorious for bad advisors. Some programs in ACES are fairly weak (HRTM, FCS, FWCE, ARS) and I would not recommend them. Do not go into Animal Science unless you want to spend your life surrounded by rednecks and chewing tobacco. The alternatives in the Arts and Sciences College are not acceptable. Advising is poor to lousy and the faculty are unable to function outside their tiny little niches. Engineering at NMSU is locally overrated though nationally not that well respected.

The student body is very closed off

Jun 16 2014Architecture
The student body is very closed off. Making friends if you don't know anybody is VERY HARD. nobody really talks to anybody new and is very much like a highschool were EVERYONE Is a snotty pretty popular person. I went there a whole year and made NO FRIENDS. (I was from out of state to so I spent a whole year alone and ended up dropping out and becoming a complete sociopath) There is NOTHING ENTERTAINING ABOUT LAS CRUCES NEW MEXICO.the city its in. Its a small town were everything closes buy 9pm there is 1movie theater and 1mall. Evyone listens to country Music and there is NO ROCK AND ROLL.If your Out of state, don't know anyone, not average looking (Not teen model status) like Rock and Roll, like a city with lots of things to do, like to go to partys, hate Snotty people, hate a small town in the middle of the desert, and wanta college experience like u see in the movies. (Pitch perfect, Van wilder, college road trip, Accepted, American Pie) with fun memoires and new friends then STAY AWAY FROM NEW MEXICO STATE UNIVERSITY, LEAVING HOME TO GO THERE WAS THE WORST MISTAKE OF MY LIFE. I WOULDN'T GO BACK EVEN IF THEY OFFERED ME A FREE RIDE!!!!!!! DON'T DO IT MAN!!! DONT DO IT!!!
