You'd be tested to find a more visually diverse and stunning place in America's Southwest than New Mexico, the Land of Enchantment. From its famous ski resorts of Taos and fine-arts hub of Santa Fe, to the non-stop nightlife of hectic Albuquerque, New Mexico offers more diversions than you can experience over the course of a college career. Desert buffs, hiking and rafting enthusiasts, and antique-hunters will enjoy living in this state.
New Mexico has an equally diverse offering of 28 public and 15 private colleges and universities from which to choose.
