NMSU looks back on 2015 and new efforts to support student success

Student Success Navigators.jpg

With more than two years at the helm of New Mexico State University, Chancellor Garrey Carruthers continued to lead the NMSU system in an era of transformation and discovery in 2015.

?This is the most exciting year since I?ve been at New Mexico State University, especially for our students,? Carruthers said. ?Through a number of new initiatives, we believe we can better guide our students through their time at the university and deliver them to the workforce as well trained and well educated college graduates. We are betting on our students? success and we are betting big.?

Each of NMSU?s 1,993 freshmen started the 2015 fall semester paired with a student success navigator. The new program provides graduate student mentors who give one-on-one support to freshmen throughout their first year in college as part of the university?s retention efforts.

Opening reception for 'Water! What is it Good for?' to be held Jan. 21

The opening reception of "Water! What is it Good for?" will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 21, at the University Art Gallery. This event is free and open to the public.

For this exhibition, Bethany Taylor, an interdisciplinary artist from Gainesville, Florida, and assistant professor of drawing at the University of Florida, is using the medium of string to draw figurative artworks that will be installed on the UAG?s walls. Taylor?s works can be understood as contemporary allegories with a twist. These woven stories combine cross-cultural mythology and symbols with modern-day imagery and concerns for the longevity of our environment.

Brenda Perry, an El Paso, Texas, native, works across media and focuses on the Rio Grande river as the central theme of her work. Born in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, she sees the Rio Grande as a threshold between communities that needs to be reconsidered from combined social and environmental perspectives. In her interactive works that will be on display, Perry bridges the logic between contemporary virtual and physical landscapes.
