to each his own....
You are absolutely correct when you talk about ENMU - I can say that there is very inexpensive tuition (dare I say cheap when comparing it to my College Education, and today I decided I'm going to give it a try during the Summer of 2011 since I'm stuck here until at least then.
Here is the upside to ENMU - I've already spent a very large portion of my Federal Aid along with my GI Bill to obtain my Undergrad and only need to finish my Thesis for my Grad. Now my school is not an Ivy League school but my out of pocket (FAFSA and GI Bill) has gone beyond $100k. By attending ENMU I've found that I can still complete 2 additional Undergrad's with the remainder of my FAFSA, 3 more Grad, and well I will need to go north to UNM for a Pilled Higher and Deeper (PH.D).
So please forgive me for COMPLETELY putting down this land that God and Time has forgotten - the education is cheap. My only concern, which I can report on relatively soon, is second hand. I apologize if I offend anyone, however after spending the kind of money I have for top notch private school education I have very high expectations when it comes to Secondary Education.
Now for a positive I inadvertently left out - I'm a competitive Dart Player and this town has a VERY small Dart League, however coming from Denver with a league of well over 1,000 players I would gladly put up our players - top to bottom against their top notch players. See there's nothing else to do here except follow your passion or gain a hobby. I've been competitively playing playing for over 10 years and have traveled the nation to play against the "so-called" best. Perhaps its the direction of the sun relative to the equatorial southern exposure that makes players so good, but I'm putting my money on the fact that there's nothing else to do here but practice what you love. Golf is Cheap (courses suck - but then again - a bad day playing 18 holes is betters than dealing with the Wife and Kids at home - LOL), So I guess there are a few good things here - just too far out in podunk town for a city boy like me.
