Student Organizations

Join a student organization, it’s fun and rewarding.

Become a member of a student organization, where you can make friends, enhance your educational experience, take on a leadership role, or just develop a sense of community.

Currently the American Indian Program has three student organizations:


American Indian Science and Engineering Society


The NMSU AISES Chapter meets to provide support for American Indians and Alaskan Natives pursuing studies in science, engineering, business, and other academic disciplines. AISES also sponsors students to attend the annual national conference held each November. Corporations are present at the conference to recruit members for summer internships, Co-Ops, and full-time employment.
