15 Students rated Anoka-Ramsey Community College

Kara

It's a good school to start at. People are great, and there are plenty of opportunities to socialize, join clubs, and learn outside of class. Courses are not too expensive, so you won't break the bank here. You can work and take classes to save up for a university after getting your generals here at ARCC.

Chloe

Community colleges are undoubtedly beneficial to those who actually experience it. Being a good and involved student throughout high school, I had always pictured myself going to a big university, and was even shocked myself when I ended up staying in my hometown to addend ARCC. I was excited to start as I knew I would be saving money, time, and effort in my college endeavors by staying home, but I soon found that the benefits didn't outweigh the negatives for me. I have become accustomed to feeling like I'm missing out on college life, making new friends, attending sporting events, living on my own, and finding myself. Though I truly think AR is a great school and community college is such a responsible route to take, it definitely isn't the right path for everyone, and I unfortunately learned that the hard way.

Kathryn

Its a good school if you are looking for something close to home and very affordable compared to universities. I'm personally going here because I want to get my generals out of the way before going to a university to do my major. so instead of paying around 18000 a academic year I'm only paying about 5000.

Perry

The school is a good school, don't get me wrong. The one thing I'd probably gripe about is that, and maybe this is just a personal problem, but the community there isn't as catering to Asian students. Don't get me wrong, there isn't and negative stigma towards them over there and there are Asian students over there, but there just isn't enough to draw a great amount of Asian students to the school, ie. another community college, Century College. I'd just like to see more effort put out there to invite more Asians in.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    If I could go back in time to when I was a senior in high school i would tell myself a couple things about college life. the first thing i would tell myself is to get more involved with things that the school offers, like sports and clubs. I was not having fun at AR untill I started working in the athletic office, and I made a ton of new friend. Another thing I would tell myself is to study, study, study. College requires a lot more effort and time then high school does for students to get the grades they want and need. If I could go back and tell myself these things I think my first year of college would have been not only easier bu a lot more fun.

  3. What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

    There are too many people for how small it is. we have a very large parking lot and when that fills up we have an overflow lot but that even fills up by 10 am every morning so people are forced to park in a business's back lot, which is really far away to walk in the cold Minnesota winter days.

  10. What are the academics like at your school?

    I work very hard in school and it seems to pay off. This last semester I finished with a 4.0. I am not one of those people who do not have to study at all and get an "A" in a class; I have to put in time and effort to excel and I do that with every course that I take. I have a 3.62 right now but I am working very hard to get my GPA higher.

  13. What kind of person should not attend this school?

    I don't think there is a single person who "shouldn't" attend school. School can benefit everyone, just maybe in different ways. Some people think they are not cut out for school, but I believe this is simply not true. Learning new things and expanding your mind is helpful for anyone. There are also those individuals who may think they are too old to go back to school. I believe that idea is completely false. As long as you put something into your learning, there is no possible way you won't get something back out of it.

  14. What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

    I have time to do so much! The school has flexible class hours that I can make work for my job, socializing, doing homework and chilling out! Even though I am a full time student I get an hour of work out time Monday through Thursday (I don't have class on Friday) and then about an hour or so to relax or do some homework before a 6 hour evening shift at work. I usually am able to get to bed at 10:30 every night because I have such an organized schedual to fit my life into!

  15. What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

    The most frustrating thing about my school is that I can't take as many classes as I would like to take at one time. However, I think this is probably the case at all schools. Being an older student with a family to support, I would like to get my degree as soon as possible so I can begin doing my part to put the bread on the table so to speak. If it were up to me colleges would offer non-stop programs where you omit breaks and obtain a degree as quickly as possible.
