Normandale Community College Reviews

Normandale Community College presents students with a genuine taste of college life in a minimalistic way. It also provides a great opportunity for students with low income. The campus is impressive on the inside as it is well decorated by artworks and several brochures made by students and staff. The teachers I’ve encountered so far are highly willing to help their students. Their lectures, in particular, are very engaging. For instance, interpersonal communication course mainly focused on going outside of classes and communicating and doing meaningful things with people. The college is well equipped with amenities such as gym, gaming center, and even a Japanese garden. All in all, I’m confident that a quick tour assisted by one of Normandale’s enthusiastic guides will reveal to you a great deal of unearthed opportunities you’ll benefit from the college!
Review Normandale Community College
I loved going to Normandale! It honestly is a great community college. In every college, you will get some good and bad professors, but Normandale really does have a lot of good ones. The language classes are great to take and easier than those at four year universities. The staff at Normandale are always trying to improve the college and wants to know what we think. Normandale has a decent amount 2 year degrees and actually a couple of 4 year degrees as well! There are lots of things to do at here from clubs, to extra free classes, and activities that Normandale puts on. The gym is open and free for students, there are free yoga, boot camp, and other fun classes that you can go to once a week. During finals week, Normandale has a bunch of rest and relaxation activities that you can do. There is a free movie day with free popcorn as well, a dog petting day for relaxation, stress management classes and more.
Normandale is a two-year college where many students receive their associate's degree and transfer out to four-year colleges to further their education. I would consider Normandale a stepping stone and not the end of an education. They do have shorter term programs that are more career-oriented and designed to get the student into a career faster, so there are many opportunities for people at Normandale.

As for internships, these can be found right at Normandale! I completed an internship as the Fiction Editior of the school's literary magazine, the Paper Lantern.
