“I’ve always loved sketching and architecture and after my husband and I designed and built our home, I knew what I wanted to do. I initially chose Anoka Tech because of the location but after meeting with the Architecture program instructor, I knew this would be a good fit to get my career underway without the huge price tag. It focused on the important aspects of my chosen field and the great staff helped me get there.”
