Student Organizations

HESOAll students are encouraged to join UNM student organizations and their national affiliates because they offer valuable support, educational and professional opportunities, as well as social outlets. 

Students meet new friends and have fun, explore career options, and develop interpersonal skills. Students involved in organizations report that they are more marketable because employers consider their campus involvement and leadership experience.
