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!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a great school with great professors, friendly staff and good prices. The campus is clean and accessible with plenty of parking, bathrooms and class offerings. The library is amazing because it has comfortable chairs, computers and several floors for quiet study. The Learning Resource Center also is quiet with many computers and printers to help with getting work done. The food in the cafeteria is not bad either. The class sizes aren't too big and I'm not sure about on-campus housing.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love American River College. I've had many ups and downs at this school yet I wouldn't be the independent, strong, and creative woman that I am today without this school. The community aspect is my favorite, I have always been surrounded by the best students, professors, and coaches! I believe in this school and its ability to grow, develop, and prepare students for the next chapter in their life. No matter what path people are on this school assists and supports everyone each step of the way. I couldn't be more grateful to have enrolled and participated in such a wonderful program, I am proud to be a beaver from ARC!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think it is a very good school. I always see security roaming around so I feel safe. The teachers are great. I like the fact that there is a smaller campus close to my home too s I don't have to commute as far. Everyone is very respectful and all staff are so nice.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

American River College is a community campus so we don't have on-campus housing or any Greek life, but the limitations end there. We have over 50 clubs where you can meet the most passionate people, our classroom size is on average 30 students so you can always talk to the professors, and there are so many programs, like the honors program, where you can grow close to a group of people. ARC has a diverse population and even though a lot of these students have kids, or have to work two jobs to pay their rent, they still join clubs, programs, and events. Our community college has a straightforward path to transfer to universities, and so most students all have a plan that they went over extensively with their counselors. Even though it's smaller than most universities, ARC has devoted areas of different subjects. There is a culinary arts program that has a cafe where students prepare all the food, there is a STEM center where every week students get emails from the coordinator presenting them with different opportunities on and off campus. What I love most about my college is that you can always find an area that you will be interested in and where you can find other people that are so passionate about their topics that they will instill their passion in you. Plus, there are so many other fascinating areas that you want to explore, all the while saving thousands of dollars by not paying university tuition and having a clear path for transfer.
