Fall colors on The University of New Mexico's main campus never fail to show off. 
This year a new balloon can be spotted in the sky, 'Cherry On Top,' the official University of New Mexico hot air balloon. UNM and Rainbow Ryders, Inc. revealed the new UNM hot air balloon ahead of the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta as 'Cherry On Top' made its first public appearance on Johnson Field. 
A “Tribute to Mother Earth” was created by Youn Ja to honor all grandmothers, especially Mother Earth. The shrine was dedicated on January 12, 1992, the anniversary of Ja’s own grandmother’s death in honor of Mother Earth.
This Lobo statue, located southeast of Johnson Center, was created by sculptor John Tatschl as a dedication to the 158 students and alumni of The University of New Mexico who made the supreme sacrifice for our country in World War II. The structure was placed by the fraternities and sororities of UNM.  
A new gateway to The University of New Mexico was recently unveiled on the northwest corner of Central Ave. and Girard Blvd. ASUNM was awarded funds from the NM State Legislature for the project in 2020. Students, visitors and alumni are invited to take photos with the 3D UNM monogram to show their Lobo pride.
The University of New Mexico will be closed for Winter Break from Friday, Dec. 23 through Monday, Jan. 2. UNM wishes one and all a safe and happy holiday season!
