Question and Answer
What is one thing you want people to know about Anoka-Ramsey?
It is a really great college. Everyone here was kind and helpful. I really found myself here and figured out what I wanted in life without having to spend all the time and way more money at a four-year college taking classes I didn’t enjoy. Anoka-Ramsey allowed to me choose a major and earn credits for it. I also picked up two degrees while I was here, not too bad!
Anything you want people to know about the Computer Science program at Anoka-Ramsey?
Tim Wrenn is a great instructor. Computer Science is a wonderful major. If you are into computers, or maybe interested in programming, give computer science a shot. I didn’t know much about it, but now that I have almost completed the program, I absolutely recommend it.
Have you received any recognitions or awards?
I became a CRLA Level 2 Certified Tutor, and earned an internship at Marquette University in the fields of computer science and mathematics doing research project(s).

"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."
