Although the outside of the building may give off an ominous feel, the school is a wonderful place to be. With two buildings, an extensive library, an art gallery, and a gym there is a home for every type of person. Being a community college the classes are fairly small and the teachers are available at all hours via their email. Any time you need help there are tons of sources that can be used. The school is located in Downtown Littleton meaning there is a plethora of shops and activities to explore within walking distance, as well as a light rail station that can take you straight to the heart of Denver. ACC offers a long list of certificates and associate degrees and will soon be offering bachelor degrees too! The only negative thing I have to say about the school is their counselors. Every time I have used the counselor system I have received wrong information or they just don’t know the answer. It’s much better to talk to you teachers or research the answer to your questions on your own
There are a lot of clubs and activities to get involved with which is the best thing about the college. Our tutoring opportunities while vast have very limited hours. The worst thing about the college is the advising office, they don't know how the degree check works. Another massive downfall is the breaking of laws on campus such as Title IX.
The school has great academics, and is good for students who want to knock out core credits for very reasonable tuition. The math support center is extremely helpful, especially for calculus students that need supplemental help outside their classroom.
ACC did a great job of providing what I needed for the last two years, however, if you are looking for a university vibe from a school, it may not be your best choice. If you are looking to take a couple of classes or quickly finish an affordable associate's, it has some wonderful options!

When I was your age, I thought college was only about getting a degree to make more money. It is so much more. It is a new phase, moving you forward in life. College is about growth, both intellectual, and personal. It?s about stepping out of your comfort zone, experiencing new challenges, and realizing your strengths. College is the time in your life where you have the opportunity to find out about yourself, and what you are made of. This is your chance to experience new venues, and become a well-rounded individual.
I know it?s clich?, but I?m going to say it anyway, ?You are young, and have your whole life ahead of you?. Use this time to experience, and learn all you can while you don?t have all of the grown up responsibilities. If you don?t, you may wish that you had. The worst thing you can do is live life with regrets. Stay focused. The party life may be enticing, and hanging out with friends is a good outlet, but keep it to a minimum, and make good choices. Be true to yourself, and always keep the promises you make to yourself.
Arapahoe is a diverse school that provides education in a variety of areas. They have a large art and design center, as well as an accredited nursing program. Their tag line is Do More. It is the desire of Arapahoe Community College to provide an opportunity for students to go beyond their current status, and to discover, and realize their full potential.
The worst thiing about ACC is its location. It is located in a very urban and busy area.
The person that should attend this school, is someone like me. A mature person that has a vested interest in their future. A person that wants the better quality of life that can be offered from and education. The person that has the ability to do the very best at anything they undertake.
A great transition to college straight from high school.
I dont think there is any "type" of person that should not attend this school. As with any long term investment, college should be taken seriously. After all you are paying for the benefit of your future. That being said I suppose the "type" of person that should not attend this school is someone who can not at this time commit to their future.
The best thing about my school is that it is close to my home so I can spend time with my family. I also like that I can take night classes,which gives me an opportunity to have a full-time job.
When bragging about my school to friends I center on changes I helped put in place. Arapahoe Community College was not following the law by counting American Sign Language credits for electives on all general studies degrees. For 12 years ACC was breaking a law, I took ASL 121, found out about this through a classmate, and we started collecting signatures, ended up writing a legal appeal and it passed!
The most popular club is probably outdoors club, they take lots of trips at a cheap cost to the student. Activities while just hanging out between classes or during a lunch hour is probably the pool table or shooting hoops in the gym.
Before I came to this school, I wish I had known that if I were to leave and then come back, the scholarships I had been offered one year wouldnt be there the next year.
Overall I love the school. The staff is friendly, the students are friendly, and the professors are knowledgeable and care about you. The classes are small so it makes it easy to get that one-on-one time I personally need with teachers.
Past the general classes such as math, English, and psychology I would say the most commonly taken elective is either interpersonal communications or Japanese (although many students end up dropping or withdrawing from Japanese classes).
Great! There are tons of options for all fields, and most classes are offered year 'round.
The effort that faculty puts into student success
A typical weekend for most of the students here is working at their second job, fitting in a tiny bit of a social life, and studying. Those involved in clubs are also usually constantly planning club events, trying to figure out time management, and social media networking for their club.
The program I am in is a little frustraiting because of the overall attitude of holding a job.
