After having dinner at the Frontier restaurant, we decided to wander around campus for a while. It was beautiful. We enjoyed all the green spaces, art, and watching people enjoy the evening. Everyone was very friendly. We would recommend it for a low-key evening.

If your adhere to liberal progressive values, this is your school. But, if you are a conservative minded individual, stay away, you will not be welcomed.

Beautiful campus! Gym is the same from the 90's with the exception of new flooring (very nice)! We came for Volleyball camp and toured the campus. There were several Pokemon spots and a lot of students walking around playing! It was great to see so many smiles!

Walked around the campus, which is very beautiful. Loved the duck pond in the center of campus. On Saturdays (and Sundays) in the Summer the campus store and campus center were closed. Disappointed that I couldn't check those out. Nice place to walk and then head up to Nob Hill area.

For a small town like Albuquerque, UNM is well represented as the flagship school. Lawns well maintained and maps make getting around easy. School wasn't in, so there were not too many students around when we visited. Make sure you check out the duck pond and some of the modern art.

I attended the University of New Mexico-Albuquerque for a nuclear safety conference. The professors were top notch and the students were friendly.
