And the culture is fabulous, too.
Apart from our thriving microbrewery, art gallery and music scene, we’re close to Santa Fe, Taos and other well-known cultural destinations including the National Hispanic Cultural Center and the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center. The annual PrideFest is a widely celebrated event, and everyone is welcome at the Gathering of Nations near campus each year. Not too far from UNM, you can attend the Muertos y Marigolds Parade to celebrate the Day of the Dead.
