“Review the attraction”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

It was so frustrating to read reviews of plays or campus food establishments in the attraction reviews. This review is about NMSU as an attraction.

The campus is fairly large, so be prepared for a walk. There is plenty of free parking-which is really rare for any university. You can park easily near the Pan American Center and take the shuttle. There are many museums on campus, so check out the university website so you will be familiar with where they are located. The Chili Pepper Institute is very interesting and a great place to get souvenirs. The bookstore also has an impressive selection of Aggie gear and is quite central.

Overall, the campus is well marked and mapped for easy navigation. Plan ahead to make the most out of your time. Don't be shy about asking for directions, as the students, faculty and staff are mostly friendly and proud to show you around campus.

“Easy to navigate!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

The campus is so easy to navigate. Also the staff is really friendly. There is so much to do on campus as well as around campus. If you get a chance, visit the bookstore and get you some Aggie gear!

“Week long training was easy to get to, uncomfortable to stay”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

The campus is easy to navigate-including everything around it. It was easy to find buildings and rush hour wasn't bad at all. My spouse was at a training and came out shivering from the air conditioning being so high. The next day they shut it off completely but I'm told it was preferable to the cold. Additionally, many participants brought pillows to sit on because the chairs were so uncomfortable for an 8 hour a day training. The training was in Gerald Thomas Hall. Maybe not the best place to have such a long training.

“Awesome School”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

I loved the grounds of the school, the staff and students were very friendly. Had a awesome tour of the school. The pretty landscape and the view of the Organ Mountains just took my breathe away. If you see a University in your future, give New Mexico State University a look at.
