UNM-Taos: Opportunities to embrace

After commencement, UNM-Taos graduates hurried to the Sagebrush Inn patio for a reception. Graduation is a special time in Taos, coming as it does just as winter is turning to spring, new growth is replacing old, and students from Pre-K to the post-doctoral level pause to celebrate their success and contemplate their next move. This […]

UNM-Taos graduation a community event

Graduation week is bittersweet, I think, for everyone — the graduates themselves, their families and friends, former teachers, college instructors, employers, onlookers, neighbors. It is one of those occasions when we become most acutely aware of change, and the passage of time. It’s supposed to be a winding down of the semester, but instead, each […]

A busy time at UNM-Taos

April is always a busy time at UNM-Taos, and after functioning for ten years as an official Branch of the University of New Mexico, this year is no exception.

“If I can do it, you can, too”

May 11 is graduation day at UNM-Taos—or, because it signifies the beginning of something just as much as it marks a completion, it might more appropriately be called a commencement ceremony. Executive Director Dr. Kate O’Neill says it is her favorite day of the year. Fully 210 students will cross the stage May 11, shaking […]

UNM-Taos: onward and upward

“The community college is a vital link between worlds,” observed UNM-Taos Executive Director Dr. Kate O’Neill after the 2011 commencement ceremonies, “and our graduation exercises are truly a community celebration. We are proud to play a part in helping people discover themselves and what life holds for them.” May 13 Bataan Hall was filled to […]

A time of transition at UNM-Taos

GRADUATION AND EARLY ENROLLMENT Spring is a busy time at UNM-Taos. Our graduation ceremony takes place May 13, but registration for Summer and Fall classes is already in full swing, and early enrollment is the name of the game. “Students tend not to think about fall until the summer semester is over,” reported Patricia Gonzales, […]

With an education, the world opens up

We call it graduation because it celebrates the completion of a degree or certificate. We call it commencement because it sometimes signifies the first step in an entirely new journey. Call it what you will, it is happening Friday, May 14 at 6 pm at the Bataan Building on Civic Plaza Drive, when UNM-Taos recognizes […]

Every day is a learning experience

I had a chance to talk with four remarkable women, sisters, all born and raised in Ranchos, who share a love of community, a lifelong commitment to education, and dedication to their professions. And one thing more: they are all graduating from UNM-Taos at Commencement ceremonies May 15. They have families of their own now […]
