Items of interest:   

  • The Albuquerque to Socorro commuter van has an available seat. If you are interested please contact Rob V Hepler at 575-835-8027 (text or voice) or robert.hepler@nmt.edu.Some key points about or van pool:

We operate every day that NM Tech is open.
We have two stops in Albuquerque and in Socorro

I-25 and Paseo Del Norte –leaves at 6:32 AM
I-25 and Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. – leaves at 6:45
Cramer Hall parking lot
EMRTC parking lot
We leave NM Tech at 5:05 p.m. and stop at the other stop on campus before heading home.
We lease our van from New Mexico Vanpools (a non-profit organization) who set our monthly fees based on operational costs.
Our fees have averaged $130.46 for the last year. If one considers vehicle expenses and wear and tear (depreciation), for most folks, driving their own vehicle, this cost is less than would be spent on 6 round trips from Albuquerque to Socorro. This does not consider your personal time spent on driving your own vehicle.
As a passenger on the van you can sleep or work during the trip! Most folks sleep.

  • Did you know? New Mexico Tech sends surplus inventory to Bentley's Auction every month. The company auctions New Mexico Tech inventory on the second Friday of every month. Auctions start at 8:30 a.m. at 4900 Pan American Freeway NE, Albuquerque. Buyers can bid on items in person, on-line or by phone. The website is www.bentleysauction.com or auctionsouthwest.com. Bentley's phone number is (505) 344-1812.

  • What can you do with your empty printer and copier ink cartridges, and the cell phones you're no longer using? Put them in a collection box for the Rotary Club of Socorro. This project is partly community service, to keep the cartridges and phones out of the landfill, and partly an effort to raise funds for Rotary's local, national, and international projects. You will find collection boxes on campus in the Fidel Center, Human Resources, NRAO, MRO, and the Bureau of Geology. You will also see them at various locations around Socorro. Rotary thanks you for your help!
