Question and Answer

  • Question

    What benefits has your Anoka-Ramsey education provided?


    Anoka Ramsey created a foundation to transfer and complete my degree in Theatre.  I truly believe that both the skilled faculty at Anoka-Ramsey and my desire to challenge myself is what set me up to succeed at MNSU. The skills I acquired while pursuing my degree will help me however I choose to use my degree.  Currently, I have a job in the Theatre field managing the scene shop at Anoka-Ramsey. However, these skills are easily transferred to many fields other than theatre.  I feel very prepared for the adventures ahead of me.  

  • Question

    Name one thing you want people to know about Anoka-Ramsey.


    Anoka Ramsey is a great school! I think many people are in the position I was, when I graduated high school: you know you want to attend college but you’re not certain what specifically you want to do.  My problem was I wanted to do everything. Anoka-Ramsey was great place to find what it was I really wanted to do while being close to home, and affordably.  When I was ready to transfer to a university, the process was seamless and easy. I completed all of my general education classes and could focus just on my four-year Theatre degree.
