It may not be Disney World, but it is self-described as the "Land of Enchantment." New Mexico has a strong Native American population and offers one of the few tribal colleges in existence, along with 28 other post-secondary institutions. The most popular majors in New Mexico are business management, education, psychology, biology, and social sciences, making for a diverse student population of many ages, ethnicities, and backgrounds. New Mexico is known for its "effective practices for increasing the number of Latino diploma recipients," especially in the STEM fields. Its schools have also ranked tier one nationally for many years by US News. New Mexico graduates go on to work at great companies based in New Mexico like Gigablast, Info Mesa, and Flow Science, Inc.
New Mexico is a beautiful melting pot of culture with Native American, Mexican and other nationalities intermingled to produce a wide variety of cultural sites and art galleries. It's also a great place to unwind. Notorious for its amazing dive bars, you can quench your thirst in a few different hot spots. Check out the Albuquerque Press Club or the Alley Cantina in Taos for starters. The Mine Shaft Tavern in Madrid is also quite a find, having opened in 1895 and now hosting not only a full bar but also carrying a history of film and music festivals they hope to restart in the near future. Whatever you do to relax, New Mexico offers up the perfect combination of down time mixed with fantastic educational opportunities.*Wikipeda, "Companies based in New Mexico", "Colleges and Universities in New Mexico", "New Mexico State University" *www.newmexico.gov/visitor
