Hello, and welcome to New Mexico State University Alamogordo (NMSU-A)! People make a college great, so whether you are a prospective student, current student, professor, staff member, graduate, community member, parent, neighbor, or visitor, your interest and enthusiasm are valued and appreciated.
Over 50 years ago, the college started by offering classes at the Alamogordo High School, but now we have a beautiful campus at the top of the hill that overlooks the town of Alamogordo and White Sands National Monument. We have grown from 278 students per year to almost 4,000 students per semester who are enrolled in a variety of credit and non-credit courses onsite, online, and at Holloman Air Force Base.
Our faculty and staff create a dynamic environment that engages students in the process of learning. Our strong commitment to each student provides a personalized approach that is both academically challenging and personally supportive. The campus hosts a variety of services including up-to-date technology, an Academic Support Center with excellent tutoring services, and a Library that supports access to a variety of print and digital materials. We are also home to the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) and the Adult Education (AE) program.
The campus has a strong commitment to sustainability. We implemented a campus recycling program and received LEED Gold Certification on our Allied Health addition. In partnership with the City of Alamogordo, the first solar-powered crosswalk in the State of New Mexico was installed across N. Scenic Drive. We have covered our central patio, and we are in a multiple-year process of replacing our energy management system and installing lighting fixtures that will be more energy efficient.
I hope you will navigate through this site and learn about the many qualities that make NMSU-A so special. And no matter what your reason is for visiting, we are glad you came!
– Dr. Cheri Jimeno, President of NMSU Alamogordo
