"I chose Anoka-Ramsey for three reasons: Affordability, transferability and location. It is the most affordable tuition in the state, and one of the lowest in the country. I want to transfer to the University of Minnesota’s Bio-chemical program, and my courses will transfer. And it is located on the Mississippi.
The best things about Anoka-Ramsey, though, are the great resources-the Academic Support Center, the Advising Center, the Counseling Center have nice staff committed to your success."

“Anoka-Ramsey has so much to offer for art students. They have a wide range of class types, including glass blowing, which is not very common. The professors and lab assistants work hard to inspire students and give helpful feedback.”
