Normandale Community College Reviews
Normandale being the biggest community college in Minnesota, it has a lot of pros. There are many clubs, student associations and jobs available. There are quality professors and staff who have integrity and put their all in what they do. Normandale has a big campus, at first it was difficult finding my way around but you quickly become used to the campus layout. There are also many spots and places were students can relax and do their work outside the library and student center. In my experience, one of the cons for me is the social life, the average age of students as of 2020 was 27 years old so it can be hard to make friends sometimes but I guess thats what clubs and associations are for. Overall I had a great experience at Normandale Community College!
I love everything about Normandale! The professors here are incredible. They truly care about each student and challenge them to grow. The small class sizes allow interaction and questions. Also, Normandale has countless clubs and organizations to get involved in. Whether it's math club, anime club, hacky-sack club, or student senate, Normandale truly has something for everyone. This is a school where you can make lifelong friendships.
Normandale is a quite good community college. Facilities aren't huge, but are of good quality, good programs for helping students (peer tutoring, writing center). Also many many good study spaces on campus along with themed study spaces such as for math, chemistry, and biology with faculty there to help. Course registration is not complicated and you can get into your classes. All of my professors have been competent and there to help, both in class and especially in office hours. Directly connected to Metro Transit with a buses coming very often and can easily bring you around Bloomington, Minneapolis. Several very large parking lots and ramp. Japanese garden is a nice place to calm down. Free sports and fitness facilities along with lockers for students. Overall a good experience.
