NMSU Aggies begin class Wednesday

On Wednesday, thousands of New Mexico State University students return to class.

More than 15,000 students from 49 states and 89 foreign countries attend NMSU and students have a lot of academic options to choose from as the university has 8 academic colleges.

The ABC-7 New Mexico Mobile Newsroom talked with Bernadette Montoya, vice-president of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management, who said NMSU has some new initiatives it’s introducing this year.

Montoya said the university has centralized its academic services program so students can find all their resources in one location.

“Students have a one-stop-shop, if you will, to go in and get all their advising needs met,” Montoya said.

This year, Montoya said all of the university’s freshman are living on campus and part of Living Learning Communities.

“It offers a more robust opportunity.”

The communities house students with the same likes and interests and offers opportunities to work closer with faculty.

NMSU will also introduce an integrated and holistic approach to the university’s mental health counseling and wellness clinic.

She said students seeking support for counseling will also get their physical health needs met all in the same location.

“Treating mind body and spirit in one location is an exciting thing for us in the new year,” Montoya said.
