Great professors, a lot of learning resources and services, staff always happy to help. Easily accessible library, tutoring, financial aid, counseling. Feel very safe here. A lot of construction going on as the college is expanding and more and more students are attending.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think it's a good start before transferring to a university, but the environment could be a little more professional outside the classroom. I think people should come to this college to learn, because some just like to show off and drop their classes more often than needed. Professors are very good, but I think students need to act maturely outside the classroom.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Honestly my favorite place to be even when I’m not attending classes. I find myself often spending time studying of just chatting it up with random friendly folks on campus. As someone with severe social anxiety I have found that interacting with my peers and just going about my day is very easy. I kid you not I have had panic attacks and people have stopped to check on me and some people have even told me I was going to be alright. Where else are you going to find this type of positivity?!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I transferred to this school from San Diego Mesa College. The campus is relatively clean but the on campus food is gross and over priced. Professor John Kloss is one of of my favorite teachers on campus. He is so funny and kind. He cares that his student do well in his class and offer extra credit opportunists and will stay after class to help you. The LRC offers tutoring and usually you are seen quickly but sometimes the tutors cancel and you have to wait a long time again to be seen by someone else.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

American River College is an in between for those who cannot decide on what they want to major in or those trying to start over their education. It offers a social life for those young and old with art walks and football games. Though it is hard to make or get a counseling appointment and you don't always get the reminders you need for homework or important payments, academic standing, etc. American River College is truly the do it yourself college because no one is going to do it for you. The teachers offer either amazing course material and are very involved or they are leaning against a white board confused as to what they are teaching. Overall, this community college is a lot better than others and I have been lucky to have a great support team with a self starter ability.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

ARC is about an hour away from where I live but I make the commute to this school because they offer a paramedics program that I am determined to get into. The staff is friendly and so encouraging, but they will also tell you if you need to work harder or if you are on the right track. I wish that people were more social but everyone has something going on and time managing can be difficult. I do recommend this college because the staff cares and will help you if you are determined!

I think American River College is great a place to start. It provides us with many opportunities and teaches us the things that are needed to transfer and obtain a degree. The teachers are also great. They always help out whenever we need it whether it be during class or outside of class.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe that American River College is a great community college because it uses diversity as its strength. I am part of the Equity Programs and Pathways Community and it is an excellent learning environment that enriches and encourages students from underrepresented backgrounds. There are a whole lot of resources that are being provided by the campus to accommodate the needs of undocumented, LGBTQ+, immigrant, English-learning, disabled and emotionally troubled students. The professors in this college promote empathy and critical thinking, pushes us to use Humanities and History as a guide to how we should act as individuals living in the present. This school definitely is a great place to find support and a place to find people that you can relate with, whether they are your own peers, professors or counselors. There are infinite opportunities for the students that want to pursue a full education and successfully find a career or transfer into a four-year university.
