Bronco Volleyball is advancing to the National Semi-Finals in Hutchinson, KS.  They play tonight at 5:30pm MST.  You can watch here: http://www.njcaa.org/sports/wvball/2017-18/div1/national_championship/index ($5 pay per view).

 

We hope you enjoy the holiday break with your cadet.  New Cadets are performing well and are successfully demonstrating adherence to the standards and values of the Corps.  They have shown significant growth in personal initiative and character, academic and physical development, and leadership.  They are on track to turn at the end of the semester pending final grades and successful completion of Bronco Challenge, scheduled for 1 December.

Bronco Bux

New Mexico Military Institute is pleased to offer – Bronco BuX – a convenient, secure way to make cashless purchases on campus while enrolled at NMMI. Bronco BuX can be purchased by anyone who wishes to add value to their Student ID card and utilize these funds to make purchases in your NMMI Cadet Store, The PX Grill, and Game Room Coffee Shop.

How Do They Work?

Your Bronco Bux account works like a debit card. The account allows you to draw upon pre-deposited funds to purchase books, school supplies, health and beauty items, food and snacks throughout campus. Having Bronco Bux is a great way to have the money you’ll need without carrying cash.

How to Purchase?

Take advantage of this unique opportunity to ensure your cadet’s school needs are covered  by paying in person at the Sodexo main office or calling 575-624-8217. You may also add value anytime by debit/credit card at https://nmmi.campuscardcenter.com . Funds transferred into Bronco Bux by debit/credit cards are available to cadets instantly and check deposits on the business day received.

 

NMMI Parent Club Swap Shop Guidelines

The Parent Club Swap Shop is a program being offered through the joint efforts of the Commandant’s office and the NMMI Parent Club for old cadets.  A limited number of used uniform items are available through the Swap Shop for Cadets that need to replace damaged or poorly fitting items.  The Swap Shop may save cadets some costs when needing to replace uniforms. However, Cadets should not expect to find all items needed at the Swap Shop and should still expect to purchase new uniform items at the Cadet Store at their own expense.

Here is how the program works:

  1. Cadets can swap ill-fitting or damaged uniform items on a 1 for 1 basis. No money is exchanged.
    2. Most of what the Swap Shop has is blue pants, white shirts and ACU’s. Some other items including black jackets and hats may occasionally be available.
    3. The Swap Shop is located in a shipping container behind Saunders Barracks and will be available BY APPOINTMENT by emailing Parent Club volunteers at NMMIswapshop@gmail.com.
    4. The Parent Club will schedule Swap Shop appointments only when Cadets are not busy with other responsibilities and as approved by the Commandant’s Office.
  2. Because the Swap Shop is located outside and has no electricity, appointment times are dependent on weather and daylight.
  3. Cadets should arrive at the Swap Shop with the items they wish to swap on hangers if possible.  It is ok if items are damaged or unclean.
  4. It is best if Cadets wear summer P.T.’s or similar lightweight shorts and shirt so uniform items can be put on over clothing to test the fit.  No changing rooms or private areas are available.
  5. The Swap Shop is staffed with background checked parent volunteers.  These parents have donated their own time and resources to have a Swap Shop available to Cadets. Please be patient and respectful.
  6. The Swap Shop parent volunteers will not release items they consider to be ill fitting.  However, if minor alterations are needed it is the Cadet’s responsibility to have them done at their own expense.
  7. Cadets are still responsible for maintaining serviceable uniform items and uniform repairs as outlined in the Blue Book.  If a Cadet receives a replacement item they must also be inspected by their TLA to  ensure proper fit.

Parent E-News 29 September 2017

NMMI YouTube Live Q&A  – October 5, 2017 6:30 pm MDT

Parents, please share this upcoming opportunity with any parents you might know who are interesting in exploring NMMI for their children’s future. This YouTube Live session will focus on the non-military path (not Prep or ECP programs) at NMMI. Parents can tune in and ask questions during the live Q&A session with cadets, alumni, and admissions staff. And if parents are interested in ECP or Prep, they can find pre-recorded sessions about those programs at nmmi.edu/live.

Not every student who comes to NMMI is focused on a military future. We know—we have “Military” in our title. But a lot of students use our foundation of leadership, excellence and solid academic base as a springboard for other pursuits. Join our YouTube Live event on October 5, 6:30PM MDT where you can hear from current cadets and our admissions staff who can talk about the non-military journey after NMMI. Ask questions during the event using #NMMIFUTURE or snap us at NMMILife and we will answer them on air.

 Watch the event live at www.nmmi.edu/live or find a link to it on our social media at the time of the Q&A.

 Hope you can tune in on October 5 to see if NMMI is the right fit for you! 

Questions? Email us at admissions@nmmi.edu

  3. Cadets should arrive at the Swap Shop with the items they wish to swap on hangers if possible.  It is ok if items are damaged or unclean.
  4. It is best if Cadets wear summer P.T.’s or similar lightweight shorts and shirt so uniform items can be put on over clothing to test the fit.  No changing rooms or private areas are available.
  5. The Swap Shop is staffed with background checked parent volunteers.  These parents have donated their own time and resources to have a Swap Shop available to Cadets. Please be patient and respectful.
  6. The Swap Shop parent volunteers will not release items they consider to be ill fitting.  However, if minor alterations are needed it is the Cadet’s responsibility to have them done at their own expense.
  7. Cadets are still responsible for maintaining serviceable uniform items and uniform repairs as outlined in the Blue Book.  If a Cadet receives a replacement item they must also be inspected by their TLA to ensure proper fit.

NMMI Parent Club Swap Shop Guidelines

The Parent Club Swap Shop is a program being offered through the joint efforts of the Commandant’s office and the NMMI Parent Club for old cadets.  A limited number of used uniform items are available through the Swap Shop for Cadets that need to replace damaged or poorly fitting items.  The Swap Shop may save cadets some costs when needing to replace uniforms. However, Cadets should not expect to find all items needed at the Swap Shop and should still expect to purchase new uniform items at the Cadet Store at their own expense.

Here is how the program works:

  1. Cadets can swap ill-fitting or damaged uniform items on a 1 for 1 basis. No money is exchanged.
    2. Most of what the Swap Shop has is blue pants, white shirts and ACU’s. Some other items including black jackets and hats may occasionally be available.
    3. The Swap Shop is located in a shipping container behind Saunders Barracks and will be available BY APPOINTMENT by emailing Parent Club volunteers at NMMIswapshop@gmail.com.
    4. The Parent Club will schedule Swap Shop appointments only when Cadets are not busy with other responsibilities and as approved by the Commandant’s Office.
  2. Because the Swap Shop is located outside and has no electricity, appointment times are dependent on weather and daylight.
  3. Cadets should arrive at the Swap Shop with the items they wish to swap on hangers if possible.  It is ok if items are damaged or unclean.
  4. It is best if Cadets wear summer P.T.’s or similar lightweight shorts and shirt so uniform items can be put on over clothing to test the fit.  No changing rooms or private areas are available.
  5. The Swap Shop is staffed with background checked parent volunteers.  These parents have donated their own time and resources to have a Swap Shop available to Cadets. Please be patient and respectful.
  6. The Swap Shop parent volunteers will not release items they consider to be ill fitting.  However, if minor alterations are needed it is the Cadet’s responsibility to have them done at their own expense.
  7. Cadets are still responsible for maintaining serviceable uniform items and uniform repairs as outlined in the Blue Book.  If a Cadet receives a replacement item they must also be inspected by their TLA to ensure proper fit.
