Before arriving in New Mexico, Sol the Suncat prowled the Southwest looking for education and fun. After searching high and low, Sol found CNM. Sol checked out some classes, made some new friends, and decided to make a permanent lair at CNM.

Today, Sol has the important job of promoting school spirit both on campus and around Albuquerque. Sol loves to strike a pose for the camera and is always looking for new friends, so if you see Sol, be sure to say hello!

A Few of Sol's Favorite Things 

Sol was born in the Foothills of the Sandia Mountains, so it's no surprise that Sol loves basking in the sun and strolling the Petroglyphs. A true New Mexican, Sol enjoys spicy food, including Fireballs, Red Hots, and—of course—red and green chile (the hotter the better). Catch Sol listening to "Here Comes the Sun," watching The Lion King, stalking the best new classes, or hanging out with students at CNM. Sol loves college and New Mexico!
