NMSU among magazine's "Publisher's Picks"

The Hispanic Outlook in Higher Education, a national education journal, has included New Mexico State University in its "1998 Publisher's Picks."


"Publisher's Picks" is a "list of colleges and universities nationwide that in our view offer outstanding opportunities to Hispanic students," publisher Jose Lopez-Isa wrote in an introduction to the special section in the magazine's Nov. 20 issue.

"To compile the list, Hispanic Outlook consults both formal and informal information sources -- surveys completed by the institutions themselves, information reflected in their catalogs and literature, statistics compiled by the U.S. government, and anecdotal evidence garnered from students, faculty, administrators and advocates of both education and Hispanic achievement," Lopez-Isa wrote.

In April the magazine ranked NMSU among the top 100 colleges and universities in graduating Hispanic students.
