Eastern New Mexico University-Roswell is an institution geared toward student success. The ENMU-Roswell experience commits to the education of each student, involves students in both academic and non-instructional settings through campus organizations and events, community activities, and interactions with faculty, staff, and peers. These experiences create a true learning community, and they can significantly improve student success in achieving academic, civic, and career goals.
Beginning any new college experience presents challenges for most students, which may become barriers that block student success. Eastern New Mexico University-Roswell is committed to removing those barriers, to maximizing student involvement in the collegiate experience, and to helping students complete their college career with success.
Considerable research suggests that students’ living arrangements are one of the key factors in the successful college experience. Compared to those who commute, students living on campus are able to be more involved, have better access to faculty, tend to perform better academically, are more likely to persist to graduation, and report a higher degree of satisfaction with their experience.
Although living on campus does not guarantee success, we believe it does remove some of the barriers. It also provides the opportunity to learn the rights and responsibilities that accompany participation in higher education as a member in a community of learners.
