“The teachers here are great, they’re always willing to work with you, especially if you have a question on your homework. They will take the time to go over the material until you understand it even if you’re visiting three times a week. The Cambridge Campus is also a little more secluded while having an amazing natural environment around it that makes for a peaceful and productive learning environment.”

“I was hesitant about attending Anoka-Ramsey, because I was not sure if going to a community college would be the right fit for me. I was worried that I would regret the decision of going to a community college before a university, however, after two years spent at Anoka-Ramsey I do not regret my decision at all. Anoka-Ramsey has exceeded my expectations. The classes and professors are engaging and kind. There is an active student body, and I feel perfectly at home!”
