I would think that since it is a community college it's best known for its fair prices for people wanting to further their education or career. I drive further to get to it than some of the other schools near me because the classes don't fill up too quick. and a lot of things can be done online. Some other community colleges in the area don't have as smooth of an online experience and the classes are always full. ARC has flexibility of classes, prices and online layout.

My school is best known for a large variety in ethnic and very foreign cultures! It's incredibly enlightening to work together with people of all different backgrounds, and to be exposed to ideas that have never crossed the path of my thought process before. American River College, (being a junior college) is a path wise to take. Transfering with a sprawl of fantastic studies before entering the "big leagues" puts most graduates at a large advantage!
