A friend of my nieces got music scholarship offers to both schools. He is from Las Cruces but chose UNM because the music program was better. This was about 3 years ago. Las Cruces is probably safer than ABQ.

I would research both schools and communities to see which one may be a better fit for you. However, UNM has the better reputation overall and you may find better internship opportunities within the ABQ/Santa-Fe corridor.

Probably depends on which aspect of music, but UNM used to have the better reputation for music, though NMSU seems to have the better marching band. I agree, the intern opportunities in ABQ/ SF should be better than LC.

Certainly Las Cruces and NMSU would be safer overall than Albuquerque/UNM, but even that is probably dependent somewhat on where you would be living.

The nice thing about UNM is it's smack dap in the middle of the city. Lots of places to eat within walking distance. I took some classes years ago and thought it was the best.

For what it is worth, my niece told me that her friend played saxophone. And his decision also had to do with just having more music venues in a larger city.

I have never felt unsafe anywhere in Las Cruces, though I don't live there I have been visiting for years. Certainly the area around NMSU causes me not the slightest worry.
