SOCORRO, Aug. 13, 2007 – New Mexico Tech has been named one of “The 25 Hottest Schools in America” in the 2008 Kaplan/Newsweek “How to Get into College” Guide.
The state-supported research university in Socorro is featured in the latest edition of the annual college guidebook as the school that is “Hottest in the War on Terrorism.”
The brief institutional profile on New Mexico Tech provided by the 264-page guidebook states, “The school has reduced admissions red tape to a minimum, while quietly building — with a flood of federal dollars — one of the prime research centers for fighting the War on Terror.”
“The selected schools all offer top academic programs, but are also generating a lot of buzz this year, whether due to other events, trend-setting initiatives or other circumstances,” said Russell Schaffer, senior communications manager with Kaplan Test Prep and Admissions.
The 2008 Kaplan/Newsweek “How to Get into College” Guide will be available at bookstores and newsstands on Monday, August 20, and can also be ordered on Kaplan’s website at www.kaptest.com/store/.
