What does a 160-year-old fort have in common with great skiing?
Or world-class art and music have in common with three state parks? They’re all in New Mexico Highlands University’s backyard. Northern New Mexico is truly a unique location, and Highlands’ main campus location along the historic Santa Fe Trail is the launching point for everything Northern New Mexico has to offer. On a short drive from campus, you can experience remote villages ignored by time, slopes that will invigorate all levels of skiers and snowboarders, and historic and cultural sites unlike any in the world. Las Vegas, a friendly town of 16,000, contains more than 900 buildings on the Historic Register and is located between the world-renown art markets of Santa Fe and Taos.
