If you are notBrightArt & Design Department
If you are not in Agriculture or Engineering, perhaps you should look at other schools. Think carefully about what you major in regardless...Good Luck!

This school may look in their advertisement butNot so brightPsychology
This school may look in their advertisement but they lack in many ways. You will be limited in your area if you take classes other than Ag or Education. Also your professors will not care if you truly learn anything. Just do the work and leave them alone. If you have a mind of your own keep it to yourself because if you disagree with the professor you will not pass their class. If you are an older student or a veteran you are not really welcome here. I suggest looking into a different college and not wasting your time or money.

NMSU has its problems, as pointed out byQuite BrightAgriculture/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.
