A Lobo is a Leader
Lobo is the Spanish word for Wolf. It is also UNM's mascot. We are the UNM Lobos. We run in a pack.
It is exciting, amazing and life-changing to become an International Student. Only the most adventurous & brave people decide to study at a university in a foreign country. If you decide to have your university experience abroad, you will join the historic ranks of many of the world's leading people. We believe that living in New Mexico is an excellent choice to grow as a student and as an individual.
As a Lobo at UNM, you will not be alone. There are over 450 Student clubs & organizations for you to join. The Global Education Office is the center for all 1,500 International Students and supports all UNM students with their International concerns.
