During the school year, New Mexico State University and Dona Ana Community College host almost 30,000 students, faculty, and staff. It’s no surprise that this area is rich with residential neighborhoods and apartments, most within a short distance of the many recreational amenities the schools bring to the city of Las Cruces.
With a host of galleries, museums, and events, the University corridor, is brimming with art and culture. From ballet and theater to symphonies, student art shows, and an 18-hole golf course, NMSU offers a little something for all tastes. In addition to all the exciting sporting events, the Pan American Center and Aggie Memorial Stadium regularly host prominent performing artists and live shows. Student-friendly bars, restaurants, delis, and shops line University Avenue.
