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.
Review Normandale Community College
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 initially decided to attend Normandale Community College to complete my generals for my Associate's Degree. I have been very pleased with the professors that I have had, as well as the courses and content. I think Normandale offers a great variety of classes, and the faculty encourage not only hard work in the classroom, but also outside effort to build community, including offering many service learning options. The student body is a diverse one, and the atmosphere is very welcoming and respectful of each individuals backgrounds and lifestyle. Any student who goes here can find support in many different locations, whether from teachers, administration, other students, on-campus learning centers and clubs, and so on. There is a place for everyone here.
