Nestled in the fertile Mesilla Valley between the majestic Organ Mountains and the meandering Rio Grande, Las Cruses is the second largest city in the state of New Mexico, after Albuquerque. The city is a blend of unique attractions, culture, historical sites, Mexican cuisine and year round golf. It is known to have friendly people and the right amount of peace and quiet for retirees. Many youngsters complain of it being a small boring place with only one small mall; often leading them to travel as far as El Paso in order to have a decent social life.
Las Cruses is in the middle of a desert, giving it a dry, arid climate. With 350 days of sunshine, it is one of the sunniest places in the US. The summers get warm, but are not excessively hot. Evenings see a drop of about 30oF. Winters are warmer than those in the other parts of the US, with the average winter low being somewhere around the freezing point. The air here is dry, and the precipitation is less than 10 inches each year with August being the rainiest month. The rest of the year is mostly dry.
Nestled in a 900-acre campus, NM State may be technically in the middle of the desert, but it is surrounded by greenhouses and bordered by an interstate highway. The East of the campus houses the President’s home, a Golf course, the New Mexico Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum. The latter two, occupy 47 acres, bringing to life, the 4000-year history of farming and ranching in New Mexico. To the south, one may find 48 acres of horse farm, the Fabian Garcia Science Center (which focuses on the research and teaching of various plant research projects) and the Leyendecker Plant Science Research Center.
A college landmark, that was destroyed in fire, lies in the center of the university called the Old Man. A HorseShoe shaped drive in an open large lawn remains at the center of the campus. The Burrell College of Medicine is also located on NM state campus.
On-campus living options include residential halls, apartments, graduate housing, family communities, living learning communities, and theme communities such as Chamisa Village Apartments ($2800), Cervantes Village Apartment Complex ($2070), Garcia Hall ($2200), Pinon Hall ($2200), Rhodes Garrett Hamiel ($3000-$1300), etc. There is a specific international student housing too. Students find the on-campus living sub-standard (and recommend purchasing renter’s insurance in case of any issues), and hence recommend to go for off-campus housing. For off-campus living, there are many rental complexes near campus which range from $200 too $2000 per month.
The faculty to student ratio 1: 19 at NM state with 1163 faculty. It provides Graduate learning opportunities in Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences, Arts and Sciences, Business, Education, Engineering, Extended Learning and Health and Social Services. It is especially revered for its learning in agriculture and also home to New Mexico’s NASA Space Grant Program. Yet, the students feel that the university lacks funding for promoting better education and research. The students of Economics and Communication department, wish there were improvements. Overall, they are not always pushed to their limits and feel a sense of laid-backness.
The average tuition fee per year is around $16000. There are limited number of tuition waivers available for international students. Most of them are on merit basis. New Mexico government gives 6% tuition waivers to students at NMSU (both domestic and international). Of that total number, the university allocates 10% of those total waivers to foreign students. There are teaching and research assistantships as another form of waivers. The International Competitive Scholarship reduces tuition costs to in-state resident tuition rates (approximately 70% reduction on regular tuition and fees), plus awards a $100 stipend (cash award) each fall and spring. The award is based on your GPA and TOEFL scores.
The average salary of graduates from NM State is $35000. There are various Career Expos happening around the year. Some of the companies that come on campus are Cummins Inc, Bohannan Huston, Inc., Farm Credit, Ferguson, Honeywell, US Departments, etc. Students wish there were better companies for them.
Students say that the education and the housing (rather than football) could see much more improvement if they had better budgets. Although, if you come here as a graduate, you are a bit older to be craving too much for parties in this boring city. If you are eligible for better options, choose them.
