Question and Answer

  • Question

    What was your biggest challenge while attending college?


    I had been home schooled up until attending Anoka-Ramsey via the PSEO program, so my first semester was a bit of a shock. I'd hardly ever been tested prior to that, and was used to one-on-one attention. The small class sizes and incredibly caring teachers at Anoka-Ramsey made that transition easier, I'm sure.

  • Question

    Anything you want people to know about the Computer Science program at Anoka-Ramsey?


    Anoka-Ramsey has fantastic teaching, often better than what's offered at more prestigious universities, and for a fraction of the price.

  • Question

    Who were your favorite instructors?


    I can't choose between Tim Wrenn and Mark Omodt. Tim demands the best out of every student. He sets high standards and wants to help every student reach them. Mark's love of math is highly contagious, and he makes concepts that would otherwise be abstract tangible.
