Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society Chapter Coming to Campus

A chapter of Phi Theta Kappa, a prestigious national honor society for community college students, is being formed at the University of New Mexico-Gallup. The chapter will be known as Beta Tau Psi. Students who have a 3.5 grade average will soon be receiving a letter of invitation to join.

“We will be actively recruiting,” said Zeke Garcia, Student Services director, adding that he also will be recruiting a faculty member to be a sponsor.

Students who become members in the honor society serve as role models for high achievement among their peers. They also have an opportunity to train for leadership roles, and to meet other club members at conferences. Students who join will also help with fund raisers for the chapter.

UNMG Fall Enrollment: 1.82% Less Than 2010

The University of New Mexico-Gallup has released its official enrollment figures for the fall semester.

Headcount is 2,981, for a decline of 1.82 percent or 55 persons from fall of 2010, when 3,026 persons were enrolled. Student credit hours are likewise down with a total of 28,372. The total for fall 2010 was29,472, for a change of 1,100, or 3.73 percent less than last year at this time.

The third Fridays of the fall and spring semesters are the official census dates for reporting enrollment.

The college reported 472 classes in session for fall 2010.

Institutions of higher learning in New Mexico have had to cope with significant budget cuts over the last two years, with UNM-Gallup experiencing cuts totaling $2 million. As Executive Director Sylvia Andrew explained, one way the college has had to deal with the decline in revenues is to cancel some elective classes.
