Since its founding as a junior college in 1934, Eastern New Mexico University has blossomed into a university offering 91 associate, bachelor and master degree options. With enrollment approaching 6,000, students attend ENMU from 49 states and 20 foreign countries.
As a system, ENMU consists of the four-year campus in Portales and two-year branch campuses in Roswell and Ruidoso. Eastern’s student-to-faculty ratio is a 17:1, making it a great place for students to connect one-on-one with their professors. ENMU is also a designated Hispanic-Serving Institution by the United States federal government. ENMU graduates hold integral positions in business, education, entertainment, entrepreneurial and political arenas throughout the nation.
Students can take courses on-campus, online or at several high schools.
Distance Education offers a number of evening and weekend credit and non-credit classes for adults and children. Past classes have included home finance, cooking, swimming, dancing, computer skills, and yoga.
The varsity athletic teams at the university compete in the nationally-respected NCAA II Lone Star Conference. Eastern has won national championships in basketball, track, cross country and rodeo, plus numerous division and conference championships.
In addition to sports, Eastern offers a number of fine arts and other entertainment opportunities open to the public. These include comedians, touring musical acts, speakers, recitals, art shows, and theatre and dance productions.
The ENMU mascot is the Greyhound. The university has two former racing greyhounds to serve as goodwill ambassadors. The dogs, Vic and Tory 2, became a part of the ENMU family in 2010, and their care and handling is part of ENMU’s pre-veterinary degree program.
