“The information technology program at Anoka Tech is very fast-paced, but the classes are achievable and the instructors are willing to help all students have the best experience possible. I take the knowledge and skills that I learned from instructor Lisa Hubbard with me everywhere I go. She provided me the tools I needed to make myself the best person I can be in a technical world.”
