The Democratic Party of Los Alamos County joins Chairman Gibson and other local Republicans in support of the UNM-LA Mil Levy.
When I graduated from high school in upstate New York, I chose to attend the local community college for my first two years. Classmates came back from their far flung institutions with exciting tales of huge lecture halls and the anonymity of being at a large school. More than a few returned prematurely from their college experiences, not yet ready for such dramatic changes.
In contrast, my experience was one of small classes and enthusiastic teachers. My first college professors were focused on teaching rather than publication and research. I did not feel like just one of the new batch of freshman.
Our 17 year old son started classes at UNM-LA this month. He returns home each day talking about inspiring and engaged instructors who care about the subjects they teach and their students. In our rapidly changing world, it’s comforting to know that some things endure. I picture him in 30 years looking back with fondness on these first college years. It makes me thankful that he has the same opportunity that I had.
