Maybe it's because these are only my first couple years of college, but I have had to take a little bit of time to think out my semesters' schedules each time because of when classes fell. Sometimes I can't take the ones that I want because they either conflict a little with another class, or completely overlap. Also, sometimes courses are only offered online, which sucks for me because I can't really learn that way.

I'm not really sure, I haven't looked into it. It's at a pretty convenient location for me until I can transfer to the University of Minnesota.

The Student Body seems very respectable. I can ask students questions and they'll answer them with no problem. Also, a lot of students in the classes will sit around and chat with each other before class starts even if they didn't know each other prior to the class starting.

It doesn't seem as flexible to get the credits I need for my computer degrees. I need Computer Science courses, but the one I need is only offered in the fall and spring. I wasn't able to sign up for it in the fall, so now I have to wait until the summer to take it. I can't take any of my other courses until this one is out of the way. Also, other classes I want to take are only offered in the evening. I have to take the metro into class, but it doesn't run out there early enough for me to make it to that class on time. Other than those couple things, the college is great and enjoyable.

Our school offers many programs but it is only a 2 year college so you can only get the associates degree. The advisors are about half and half one I had really wanted to help the other seemed as though he didnt want to be there.

I really enjoyed some of my professors but others did not seem to take a general interest in their students. They did not seem concerned for the success of their students or care to make any improvements to their class.

The internet speed slows down in the evening. If you know where all of the computer labs are then you are typically able to find a computer. Each student is given $20 to use for printing services. The college started it to save on paper. It can be upsetting if teachers assign many notes and assignments.

I took an online Statistics class. I have always been very good at math, but I couldn't understand why I was doing an equation for example. I got 100% on two of the three tests, but I couldn't tell you what I learned. I just knew what to do, but not why.

They just built a new gym and activities center, so there should be more athletic activities available. The library is quite large, I think, for a community college, and is always quiet. Most of the time, I hang out in the student lounge with some friends for some down time between classes.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
I do not qualify for financial aid, but there are not many scholarships open for me there. I was once told that I couldn't apply for a certain scholarship because my GPA was too high! I found that very disappointing. However, being a community college, I am still taking classes for a lot cheaper that at a 4 year university

I have been taking online courses for 2 years now, and so I am pretty used to them. The online courses at AR have differences, but overall they are pretty good. They are more work and a little more challenging, but it helps because you do not have to drive there as often and pay for gas. I really like it for my science classes because some of my teachers will post their lectures online, so it is just like going to class, but your not.

The work load is higher, it costs more, and even the professors don't know how to use the system. My professor posted assignments in 3 different spots and used lecture videos based on a book we where not assigned to read, but had to test on. Online courses are expensive, more work, and I don't know why I would ever take one again.

Every week the internet stops working for students trying to sign in. Often the login screen on school computers won't work or it takes longer then 3 minutes to load. Most new students had trouble signing in for the first time, and some have never been able to do it at all. The current system is overloaded, and misused or poorly written.

In general the student population gets along well. We have lots of clubs and people intermingle between classes. We used to have a pool table and people would congregate there as well. I don't notice anyone being treated differently because they are of a different race or religion. I have noticed that the students that hang out in the mosaic center do not intermingle with the rest of the student population and only talk to other students who spend time in there. The Mosaic center is strongly polarized politically and socially and it makes students who are more moderate uncomfortable to spend time in there.

The teachers teach very well and is well worth the money that is getting put into going to college.

Anoka-Ramsey has a very active campus for the number of students. There are a ton of clubs, groups, and teams to join.

The computer network here is state of the art. There is computer access in the library, an open computer lab, and free WiFi for all students. Laptops can be rented in the library for no charge. The school uses various websites such as D2L.org to enrich the learning experience. Overall the systems here are very nice.

hands on work in the classrooms and the professors are very helpful and can work one on one with the students due to small class sizes.

Many of my peers are working between a job or two, attending college and high school at the same time for some. Earning this grade mean reaching for the fullest potential one can arrive to.

Anoka-Ramsey has a very diverse student body. I've met mothers with full-time jobs and high school students. I've met people of all different ethnicities. Personalities, interests, intellectual abilities, etc. are all over the board.

The career center seems to be very vague about placing students in the correct area of study for their desired field. Since I was placed in the wrong program, my only option after discovering this was to finish my Associate's degree in Liberal Arts, which doesn't offer much when applying for jobs.

I had a lot of trouble getting my transcript figured out. No one told me I had to get it evaluated specially, and it would effect my first semester classes. I also had no end of trouble with financial aid, Though I had all my paperwork in on time the child support grant staff were not helpful, judgmental and even gave me false information resulting in me not getting the grant due to incorrectly filled out paperwork.

My friend has been trying to get a job in her field after graduating from here and still hasn't she is still working in her "get through school job". There just isn't all that much help in the career center.

I have yet to get past the generals, but the electives I will be taking for a psychology major interest me greatly. They seem like they are going to be very interesting and a lot of fun to work in.

The network is a little slow at times, and even hard to keep.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
