The main Student Services Center is in this area, and it’s a place where students can seek out student groups or staff that they need to get in touch with. One former student, Yolanda P., shared, 

“Graduated with my degree in Health Information Technology. Loved CNM! Worked as a student employee. Everyone was so helpful. Even when I was having a hard time I utilized resources from CNM to get me back on track. No, everything is not perfect, however, this was one of the best community colleges I have ever attended and I have 3 associate degrees. Didn’t get it right until I came here.”
