There is a lot to do and see in Albuquerque. Check out the following sites for some good ideas of how to spend your free time here in The Land of Enchantment:

  • The Student Union Building (within which the conference is located) has a lot of fast-food restaurants on the second floor and a mini-mart on the first floor.
  • For a quick lunch at a one of the most popular restaurants in town, head to Frontier Restaurant, located just across the street on Central from UNM. Make sure to try some of their green chili!
