School Details

New Mexico State University, a four-year, public, land-grant institution, was founded in 1888 as Las Cruces College. In 1889, the New Mexico Territorial Legislature authorized the creation of the Agricultural College and Experiment Station and Las Cruces College became the New Mexico College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts. By 1960, the school had grown substantially, and its name was changed by state constitutional amendment to New Mexico State University.

As a Hispanic-serving institution, NMSU serves a multi-cultural population of students across 49 states and 89 foreign countries. It is a NASA Space Grant College and is home to the very first Honors College in New Mexico. The school's mission is "to serve the educational needs of New Mexico’s diverse population through comprehensive programs of education, research, extension education, and public service."
