Calling all Class of 1968

This is your golden year at Highlands. Make plans to attend Homecoming 2018 for recognition and fun. Make sure we have all your contact information so we can keep you informed. Call (505) 454-3248 or lylamaestas@nmhu.edu

Have any Highlands Memorabilia?

Clearing things out?  Making space in a move? We'd love to talk to you about any Highlands related memorabilia you have!

Have an old Highlands annual that you’d like to donate? Our alumni office will gratefully accept yearbooks, old pennents, and other ephemera.

Email us at jesalman@nmhu.edu so we can find those memories a new home!

Be an Enrollment Ambassador!

Enrollment Ambassadors play an integral role in NMHU’s recruitment, admissions, and in getting students to come to Highlands. From reaching out to potential applicants at college fairs and high schools to attending admitted student events, there are a number of ways to get involved.

If you’re short on time or live in a less populated area, our new call out initiative can be completed with basic phone and internet service. It will take a couple hours of your time and is as easy as making some phone calls and sending your report to NMHU. We will provide you a training manual and key NMHU facts to ensure your calls are successful. Your work will have a positive enrollment impact moving into the 2018 academic year.

If interested, please contact Benito Pacheco, the Director of Academic Support, at 505-454-3188 or bmpacheco@nmhu.edu.
