I’m currently a sophomore at ENMU and I have really enjoyed my time here. I’m majoring in Electrical Engineering Technology and Mathematics and all of the professors and staff are great in the Department of Mathematical Sciences, all the professors and instructors are plenty knowledgeable about their material and then some. As far as I know, STEM fields at this university are great. I haven’t personally experienced anything wrong other than the advising center’s advice, short patience and short answers, however I have had some problems with other professors that other reviews have mentioned such as professors’ opinions. This university is overall great.

Honestly if you read some of these "reviews" they are alumni from 1980's-90's... Things have changed in the past 20-30 years! I only had 4 good instructors, (sadly only one from my major... a lab instructor who was a graduate student, another was my anthropology instructor and two exercise ) the rest of the instructors are too busy for their students and don't seem to care too much if one of them is struggling in class. Advising staff doesn't help much, give half-fast answers and get really rude if you ask for more than said answer.. especially on the phone. Not to mention ENMU never has it together, like changing the portal in the middle of the semester or giving someone the wrong paperwork to withdrawal... I don't recommend anyone attending this university, it may have a lower cost but you get what you pay for.. lower price, lower education.

I have never been so disrespected by any of the universitiuniversities I have attended. I am a alumni and they will no longer get a dime from me. Dr. Goode questioned my credentials that I received from ENMU. I was talked down to and talked about. The school has race issues and I would not recommend it to African Americans as an African American Alumni.

Yes, the campus is a bit isolated but that means fewer distractions from learning! And the price is right. I had great instructors when I graduated in 1983 and 1984. It was the right place for me. I was in the USAF at Cannon AFB in Clovis through mid-1979 and I attended full-time after I was discharged. College is what you make of it.
