Normandale Community College Reviews

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.

I came here after going to Hastings College because I was unhappy being in Nebraska. So coming back home to an affordable and helpful school has been nice while I figure out where to transfer to. The professors I've had have been kind, motivated, knowledgable, and helpful. They tend to be good teachers who aren't perfect but try hard. I have one right now for my online nutrition class who I'm confused and concerned about. She doesn't seem to get the online portal and picked a very expensive book and access code. Buy from the school for this one class only! Others pick the cheaper amazon and Chegg options but this one needs an access code and your book needs to be new. I've also enjoyed the talks I've had with counselors and teachers here. It is pretty affordable most of the time. I am completing my Communications AA. Last semester I took three classes, one online. This semester I am doing 6 classes, 4 online. I should be leaving after this spring (2016). I have enjoyed my time here, and hopefully will continue to. My friend Ana also went here and did really well all through HS for PSEO. They put her on the poster as a graduate for a while! Keep in mind this isn't a college for making close friends. Not that it can't be, but here's the thing. Everyone comes from different walks of life, from PSEO to parents to retirees to college kids. They are usually working, like me. They probably only come for class. They are motivated and focused. So not that you can't meet people and make short term friends, but this is no four year party school with dorms and events.
