"The approachable faculty is the main contributor to my success as a student. I took mostly STEM core classes where the classes were small, but the content could get pretty heavy. Every professor I had made me feel comfortable visiting their office to get help."

"The best aspects of Anoka-Ramsey were the small class sizes and the ability to connect with my instructors. This was a perk I did not fully realize until I attended the University of Minnesota. The highlight of my time at Anoka-Ramsey was working with my environmental sciences instructor and the undergraduate research project. As the result of that research, I traveled to Mesa, Arizona to attend a conference and share our research with students and faculty from various community colleges around the country."

"The value of education received at Anoka-Ramsey is incomparable. As an adult learner with a family and financial obligations, I absolutely would not have been able to accomplish my ultimate goal of becoming a physician had it not been for my experience at Anoka-Ramsey."
