University of New Mexico

About University of New Mexico

Founded in 1889 as New Mexico’s flagship institution, The University of New Mexico now occupies nearly 800 acres near old Route 66 in the heart of Albuquerque, a metropolitan area of more than 500,000 people. From the magnificent mesas to the west, past the banks of the historic Rio Grande to the Sandia Mountains to the east, Albuquerque is a blend of culture and cuisine, styles and stories, people, pursuits and panoramas.

Offering a distinctive campus environment with a Pueblo Revival architectural theme, the campus buildings echo nearby Pueblo Indian villages. The nationally recognized campus arboretum and the popular duck pond offer an outstanding botanical experience in the midst of one of New Mexico's great public open spaces.

Community outreach Coordinator

July 2016 Albuquerque, NM
“My employers are very generous and put me in a position where I could help people and put myself to good use through my prior experience. I made new friends with my coworkers. At the end of the summer they offered me a scholarship for $1000 because I am still a student and they had extra money left in their budget.”
