Meet Cody LaberdaCody LaberdaMnTCAssociate in Arts
"AR was a great place to start for me. They offered great art classes, which was something I was seriously considering after high school. Also, the year I started was the first year they formed a men’s collegiate soccer team/program, so I tried out and made the team.
Anoka-Ramsey offers opportunity; opportunity with the best-looking community college and location in the state.
My experience in the Multicultural Club was awesome. There were so many students I met from all over the world. It was amazing. I thoroughly enjoyed the club as well as the many field trips we took including the one at the convention center, Festival of Nations."
