Wishing you well Aggies! Alumni Award Nominations


We wish you all the best and hope that you are successfully navigating this difficult time. With everything going on around COVID-19, it can be stressful for all of us. That is why we would like to encourage you to remain positive, reach out to those you love and safely stay connected with your Aggie family. The NMSU Alumni Association is now accepting nominations for the 2020 Alumni Awards. While you are reconnecting with fellow Aggies, think about how great they are and share their amazing stories with the rest of the Aggie community by nominating them for an award. It might just make their day and inspire other Aggies to be great!
