"It was so reassuring to know that if I have a question or need help, resources and counseling were always accessible. There were opportunities to participate in clubs and senate for every student. Most important to me was the access and ability to communicate with my instructors when I needed extra help or had a scheduling conflict."

“I had absolutely no idea what I wanted to do with my life until I started taking Journalism classes at Anoka-Ramsey and writing for the school paper. The school’s slogan at the time was, “Anoka-Ramsey: It’s a Great Place to Start.” I still truly believe that.
I excelled in the Journalism and English classes and that gave me the confidence to stay in school and on the right path.
Without the start I received Anoka-Ramsey, I probably would not have finished college. And, with the job market the way it is, a college degree is more important than ever."
