College Senior

Career Services: I have not got to this point in my schooling nor do I know anyone that has. I do know that the nursing career I am going into is very prosperous.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: I love online courses. Gets you away from having to attend school all the time and you get more time to do homework and projects

Campus Resources: They have a big building for the athletic center! Their library is perfect size.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: The computer lab is always open, they have three separate computer labs so it's great. The printing on campus is free so that's awesome! The wireless connection works outside the building as well as anything that needs wireless connection.

Student Body: The student body that attend Anoka-Ramsey are a wide variety of people. Mainly students are young student stretching between the ages of high school to mid twenties.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: Many of the academic experiences were fantastic, there is a wide verity of majors available. Mine was Biology, which there is a wide course types available for. The workload was decent, within my field the work is enough to keep you thinking but it is not too much that one would feel overwhelmed.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: Many majors are available, and the professors are very educated (and friendly). The workloads vary from teacher to teacher, but over all for my major it wasn't anything beyond what I could handle.

5 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: My personal experience with the facilities that are available to students was a good one. There are many resources available, such athletic centers, computer labs, study centers, entertainment and others. All facilities are available at decent times, and very helpful.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Anoka-Ramsey is a very great college. People are very helpful and friendly, the are many resources available to students, and my over all experience is very enjoyable.

5 Recent Alumnus

Tuition & Financial Aid: Tuition is reasonable, and financial aid is enough to help pay for classes and required supplies. Tuition is even reasonable enough that some are able to pay for class on their own.

4 Recent Alumnus

Career Services: The career services are very helpful but sadly limited due to the narrow resources available within the area that the college is placed in. For example, I want to go into Marine Biology, but due to the fact that the state in landlocked there is very limited knowledge available.

3 Recent Alumnus

Online Courses: I have not had much experience with the available online courses at Anoka-Ramsey because I have been able to make it to in class courses. But friends I know have had taken online classes, and they say that they are very easy, and enjoyable.

Academic Flexibility: Classes are available at many different times both of the day and of the week. It makes it easy to set up a schedule around work. The tutor center is extremely helpful, and open most of the day, and personal tutoring sessions are available at a students convenience. The tutors are very helpful, and desire to give as much help to students as possible. Many perks are given out to the students, such as free tutoring, a very well stocked cafeteria, fun activities, and free tickets to the plays that take place at the school (per semester).

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The degree I am going to school for is easily confused with another degree. There is the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum, which is 40 credits and you can transfer all your credits to any school in the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system. This does not include the University of Minnesota, any private colleges or any out of state colleges. The degree I am going for is called the General Education Associate of Science degree. This degree is 60 credits and requires health and wellness credits that the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum degree does not. This degree allows transfer to any college willing to accept the credits. Not all credits are guaranteed to transfer.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The professors at this school are okay. Although half of them are great and genuinely care about their students, the other half are just looking for a paycheck. The registration process is easy. Registration is available online or on-campus at the registration office. The priority goes to students with 30 or more credits. The next day it is open to another group and then the next day another. From the day registration opens until the friday of the first week of classes, registration is open without any charges. After the first week of class, the school only gives partial refunds for the courses dropped. The school offers tutors for all subject areas but sometimes the hours don't work into a students schedule. However, for the most popular courses - like math, science, and english courses - more tutors are available.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I originally decided to attend this school over other schools in the state because it was the cheapest in the state. However, after all the headaches I have been through (and from what I hear I'm not the only one...) with this school, I don't think is worth my money. Although I have had some great professors that care about their students, I have had many that also do not like their job and take it out on their students. I have even had a couple that have said "I wanted a job at the University of Minnesota, but I got a job here as a second choice" and it is obvious.

1 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: I have had some major problems with financial aid. I have been told I am not allowed to receive financial aid because I have not graduated high school (even though I graduated high school 4 years prior to saying this). I provided evidence that I have graduated high school (diploma, transcripts, etc.) and had been denied multiple times before it was finally resolved. I have also been told that the school is understaffed and that is why I had to pay for my tuition out of pocket because they did not have enough time to process my financial aid even though I had applied two months prior to the tuition due date. I have not have any problems with the financial aid office if I applied for aid for the next school year in the spring prior.

1 College Sophomore

Career Services: I don't even know if we have anyone to talk to about transferring. I think they leave it up to the school you are transferring to.

2 College Sophomore

Online Courses: I have not enjoyed it; and from what I hear others have had similar experiences. The online courses I have taken require much more work than seated classes. In one course, I had an assignment due everyday. Usually, professors will pick a day of the week when all your assignments for the week are due. For example, all assignments will be due on Monday. All quizzes due on Wednesday. All tests are due on Friday. The assignments, quizzes and tests are usually available to work on one week before they are due. The instructors are usually available online with no face-to-face contacts.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: Typical students at the school work one or more jobs to support themselves and pay for their schooling. If you need to do a group project, good luck getting your whole group together! It is mostly white students but there are many races throughout the school. Although about half of the students are in high school or freshly out of high school, there are also adults who are looking to progress their current career.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: There is a few clubs and organizations to join at the school. Unfortunately, many of them meet at 2pm.

2 College Freshman

Student Body: With such a broad spectrum pertaining to the age of students (a few freshmen, others just starting in their late thirties and forties), there is not much unity to speak of since many cannot identify with one another. When student who is married with three kids and working a full-time job has a classmate just out of high school, the dynamic of difference is dramatic.
