Coronado Park

ABQ and UNM partner to help the homeless

When most people wake up for the day, their first stop is the bathroom where the usual necessities are at arm's reach: toilet paper, towels and a toothbrush. For people experiencing homelessness in Albuquerque, waking up and using a bathroom is a luxury most do not have.

Registration begins this week with new course numbers

Registration for Fall 2019 begins Monday, but the familiar process has a new look this semester. In Spring of 2017, the New Mexico State Legislature signed a law requiring universities in the state share the same subject prefix and number as lower-division courses at community colleges, the hope being to streamline the process for transfer students.  This registration round will be the first since implementing new course numbers and prefixes — lower-division course numbers will be 1000- and 2000- instead of in the hundreds.
