What is one thing you want people to know about Anoka-Ramsey?

I had worked as a Computer Science Tutor for the Tutoring center and I was the president for the Computer Science club for a couple of years.

"Without a degree from Anoka-Ramsey I would not have had a career. While in school I met individuals in the industry. With hard work in class I was noticed and offered a job in the industry. Since then it has been history. I have moved on from my first job and now run a division. I have a stable income even in this economy."
