The Journalism Club will hold a book sale as a fundraiser to benefit the Adult Basic Education program.

On March 28, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) Club students from the New Mexico State University Alamogordo branch campus were granted access to classified sections of Holloman Air Force Base (HAFB) to meet with various engineers and technicians working at the Base. Students were granted access to an F-22 Raptor and interview professionals working to maintain and pilot the aircraft. Students were also able to meet with professionals working with MQ-1/MQ-9 Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA’s), formerly referred to as drones, as they explored the aircrafts and observed RPA live video feeds. STEM Club Members also learned about the 846th Test Squadron, which houses the longest sled track in the world. Here, engineers explained how the track is used to test potential commercial space transportation technologies using realistic flight velocities. Personnel at the 846th not only have the capability to design and engineer their creations, but also fabricate, test and analyze new technologies. Overall, students were excited about the fascinating career opportunities available for engineers right here in New Mexico.

NMSU-Alamogordo students in ET 282, Digital Electronics, better known as ‘The Clock Class’, show off their downcounting clock projects. Built from scratch, the digital clock is used as a tool in learning combinational and sequential logic circuits. The clock, capstone of sixteen weeks of studies in digital electronics, takes about 100-120 hours to build and troubleshoot. Pictured left to right are Travis Virden, Connor Peterson, Alaric Kimmel, JerryDon Salazar, Joseph Silva, Sheri Dropinski, Michael Padilla, and Jeremiah Ryle. Not pictured is Rhiannon Mick.”

March 25 – 29 is Spring Break — campus hours will be 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., March 25 – 28. The campus will be CLOSED Friday, March 29 through Sunday, March 31.
On Thursday, March 14th, New Mexico State University Alamogordo staff will be reaching out to the Mescalero community when they attend Parent Teacher Night at Mescalero High School. The goal is to specifically be available to parents, students and other community members, to educate about the benefits of Dual Credit and engage the community about the advantages of post-secondary education.
Partnerships between high schools and universities have enabled high school students to earn college credits before graduating from high school, making their transition to the collegiate campus smoother and their likelihood of graduation from college greater. On Thursday, NMSUA looks to spotlight the Dual Credit program and the collegiate setting in general in the hope that it sparks the interest of students and parents alike.
Mescalero High School has already made preparations for the event. School Counselor Geri Gleason has set aside a classroom for NMSUA to use for Dual Credit classes. One such class is COLL 101. This course is designed to help first year student’s transition to college life by building a support network with other students and faculty, learn how to become a college student and learn college and life success skills that will build a foundation for academic and personal success. In addition, the classroom will serve as an office for university personnel to speak with students about degrees in pursuing lifelong goals.
