Why UNM is My Choice for Residency: Everyone at UNM is so welcoming and kind. The people strive to make you feel at home even when you are not. I really valued how the institution comes together to help the community and strives to make sure that people of all socio-economic backgrounds are taken care of. That view from Tully conference room helped a little bit too...

Favorite Things About UNM: I love working with all my co-residents, it makes coming to work so much better!

Favorite Things About NM: I have been SO surprised by New Mexico since moving here. The city is so pretty and there is so much to do outdoors. You can go from desert to forest in the mountains in 20 min. The always sunny weather makes it so you can explore everyday! I have enjoyed hiking, playing tennis, exploring breweries, soaking in hot springs, and super competitive games nights with co-residents.
