Normandale Community College Reviews

I enjoy attending Normandale Community College. It has a superior, caring staff and a diverse student body that exposes its students to a variety of perspectives and relationships. Also, the classes have proper rigor and are well-organized.
Online classes, for instance, utilize "D2L," a valuable tool for assigning classwork, assessments, and facilitating discussions. Desire2Learn has resources for easily reaching out to professors and peers. Some instructors use it to supplement their own websites by asking students to submit work in D2L.
Normandale has many amenities. An accessible Writing Center, services for disabled persons and veterans, and a Japanese Garden are just some of Normandale’s features. A disadvantage is that the student body tends not to rank high in academic achievement, but this is typical of a commuter college. Nonetheless, Normandale is a respectable (and affordable!) community college.

My experience with Normandale overall has been excellent. The community is warm and welcoming, the teachers are knowledgable and accessible, and the opportunities for growth are incredible. Be sure to research your teachers before choosing your classes (I generally use RateMyProfessor.Com), as there are a few bad eggs to be wary of. The opportunities for bonding as a campus are less plentiful than in four-year colleges (from what I've heard/seen) but in turn, there is a greater focus on learning and achievement. The gift shop generally has great last-minute project savers and a pretty wide range of snacks. The collection in the school library is truly awe-inspiring, and often I will spend a couple of hours just wandering the shelves and looking at all the wonderful materials. A truly wonderful college and experience, for a fraction of the price of most other colleges. I highly recommend it.
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!
