Ayla - 05/13/2024

I think it is a really good college to get a associate degree. The teachers care about you and regularly reach out. They want you to succeed and are very helpful. I have been doing PSEO here for 2 years and I have felt very supported through it. I am able to get my associates degree while graduating high school. The class sizes are perfect and the teachers are really good.

Elisabeth - 04/23/2023

It's a great school for anyone looking to lean into a college experience. It's fairly cheap but there are still a lot of resources available. The teachers are mostly really nice. There is a good variety of classes and class sizes. I think if you're someone who's anxious about going to college Normandale is a great place to start. You can live at home while still getting the feel for what the work is like.

Alec - 04/08/2020

Its a great college if you are just starting out and have no idea what to do. Classes are cheap, making it easy to try out a lot of stuff and find things that might get you to decide on a specific major. There are also many online classes, making it easy to work from home within your own schedule.

Grace - 04/07/2020

I love Normandale because it is such a chill environment and is welcoming to all. I prefer larger colleges, so this is too small for me, but if you are looking for good interactions with professors this is the school for you. Classes are small but it allows for more discussions and questions to be asked. Campus is small but food is surprisingly good. They really support their students and help them prepare to transfer to 4-year schools if they wish. Normandale is committed to helping students succeed and provides many resources.

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

    Do not waste time and do not waste your money. Take advantage of post-secondary option, take the AP classes and study hard on the tests. Don't worry about what your "friends" are doing or going, they are only focused on the now and have no concept of setting up their lives for an easier future. Take interest in what interests you and find ways to incorporate those intersts into your high school career. For example, if you like playing an instrument, join the band, doing well in your classes, tutor others, etc. All of these "above and beyond" applications of yourself will not only be something you can share with a college you are interst in but such applications will deepen you ethically, morally and personally building you up to be a stronger, more resiliant and positive person. Good luck, don't sweat the small stuff, don't judge others and be open to all ideas and opinions no matter how obscure they may be at the time.

  8. What are the academics like at your school?

    My favorite class has been chemistry. The general chemistry class has a laboratory section. One day your in class discussing the theories and knowledge of chemistry. During the labs you get to experience these ideas in a very hands on experience. The labs are also designed in a way to stimulate your critical thinking skills. I also took a calculus 1 course that had what I would call a lab. Which is something I've never experienced in a math class but was very nice to collaborate with peers and have a change of scenery in a class that at times can be very heady and monotonous.

    Before I came to Normandale, I did not know a whole lot about college.

Having more information about those would have helped better plan for my future schooling. I also would have liked to know more about how credits worked, and tranferred, and more about the programs within school.
