Question and Answer

  • Question

    What originally brought you to Anoka-Ramsey?


    I chose Anoka-Ramsey because I knew I wasn't ready for a four-year university, and I knew that Anoka-Ramsey would support me. I was also very interested in the coaching certificate program. Additionally, Anoka-Ramsey has helped me develop in my personal and academic success.

  • Question

    What are your favorite things about Anoka-Ramsey?


    The best aspect of Anoka-Ramsey is that it is small and helps create a platform for future success. My highlight at Anoka-Ramsey would be when I came to the realization of how formal education can be a diving board to future success. For example, I have always had test anxiety and math phobia during my academic years. I've learned that life isn’t about how much you have or about how much you don’t have, it’s about striving in the process of life with the things you do have because your already thankful.

  • Question

    What do you think of the Exercise Science program?


    I am in a program between Anoka-Ramsey and Southwest Minnesota State University for Exercise Science. This is a unique opportunity to be able to continue at Anoka-Ramsey, while pursuing my four-year degree.  I get all of the benefits of a small campus and committed professors.
