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!
My overall opinion of Arapahoe Community College is that the staff and teachers are there to help you graduate in the quickest and easiest way possible. As a new student at Arapahoe, I am already noticing with the few staff members that I have met, that they are there as a huge support and are willing to participate as much in helping you along your way as you need. The school itself is very open, including the separate art building a block away from the main campus. The library has anything and everything that you may ever need, including a 3-D Printer, and they even have the option for the public to come on in and use their resources. Arapahoe Community College is a great school, and I am proud to be a student here.
This is an amazing school, with wonderful falcultiy. Teacher keep regulare office hours, and will even make appointments out side those times as well. I feel completely safe on campus because there is a mini police station in the school. Plust the students there are helpful and wonderful.
Overall, ACC is a great school! very cheap and have amazing professors doing their job the correct way! Class sizes and students are great! ACC always finds way to make their students feel involved and comfortable! I love it here!
It is a great school to be able to truly focus on academics. It is not a party/college life school it is more about doing well and getting through the courses and get your degree. I am a returning student and I don't feel like I am an outsider being an older student. The students here are very nice and welcoming and well as the instructors.
ACC has great professors, academic resources, and a variety of classes and transfer programs. They offer free math and writing support, eight free therapy sessions per semester, and a fitness center. It's also located in the heart of downtown Littleton making it accessible by public transit. Unfortunately, faculty that isn't directly related to educating the students tend to be disengaged and discourteous. The parking lots are usually full if you don't have morning classes. ACC is one of the most affordable community colleges in Colorado and again, has decent academics.
I love it at Arapahoe Community College. The staff is amazing and very supportive, my peers are generally really easy to get along with. It's very helpful to have daycare on site along with access to the gym and library during most days/hours of the week. It's a great school.
It is a great school to obtain a education from. I feel like the professors definitely prepare you to transfer to a 4-year university. The academic level is challenging which is great. Tons of resources available to ensure success among the students.
Arapahoe Community College is a great school for adult learners or for students who might not know what they want to study. Community college is not only cheaper than a traditional four year university, but also small class sizes and extremely available teachers makes the transition from high school to college much easier. With a wide variety of classes to take and clubs to join, anyone can make what they want out of college. The only down side is that ACC is very much a commuter school. Most student go to class then leave. That being said, classes will give students different perspectives from adult learners and students returning to school.
Arapahoe Community College, while being only a community college, can offer some surprisingly challenging classes, but more importantly, some extremely fun and educational ones. All of my science, Social Studies, and History teachers have been knowledgeable of their subject, and eager to help students who needed it. The campus is very nice, with more than enough places to sit and do homework, or even to just wait for your next class. Additionally, ACC has a large library, complete with a quiet area, computers that are free to use, and even rentable study rooms (also a law library, if you’re looking into studying law). For students who struggle with English or math, there are departments to help walk them through their homework, or new concepts they learned, if they need it. The faculty are helpful and friendly, and the entire community is pleasant to the point where I found myself staying in contact with many classmates and coordinating schedules with them for upcoming semesters. The only thing I’ve disliked about the school is the somewhat lack of professionalism or competence of a handful of professors, however, this is not a reflection of the teachers at ACC as a whole. I strongly suggest looking into your professor before signing up for a class, but other than a select few, most professors are very helpful and enjoyable to take classes with. Overall, I would strongly recommend this college to anyone seeking their Associates degree, or who plans on transferring to a four-year university.
The classes at ACC are very small, which is nice for individual attention. The teachers are fairly accessible, though I've never had an issue finding a different teacher in the same department for help. Since it's a community college, there is a fairly large variety of ages around campus and in classes, which adds to the diversity.
Arapahoe Community College is a phenomenal way to start to college and a great way to earn some college credits, especially while in high school. My teachers are very invested in their content and care about their students' well-being and success. Through the Health Sciences Program, I have been able to start my six-week internship at a Dry Creek Dental; it has helped me in my journey to find the right career path.
I think that Arapahoe Community College is an excellent place for students who either don't know what they want to major in in college or students who simply want to save money while getting a good education. I have found that the faculty at ACC is wonderful and professors are always accessible. Because it is a community college, I think there are some preconceived notions that if you go there, you must not be smart enough to go anywhere else. This is not true as I have met plenty of brilliant students at this school and if you look in the right places, you can have very intellectual discussions. A couple drawbacks to this school include the fact that there is almost no sense of community as it is a commuter school. Making friends has to be a very active pursuit and it can be difficult when so many students have outside commitments. I would also like to see more activities being offered by the school as it truly is an excellent school.
Arapahoe Community College is a well rounded and safe campus. I have really enjoyed my academic experience here and was surprised by the many opportunities offered to students. At first I was afraid to go to a community college as you here good and bad things about the experience. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find and eager teaching staff and challenging academic rigor that have made this decision well worth it.
I love Arapahoe Community College. I just went there for my first 2 years and I am transferring to Metro University in Denver in the fall. It is a 2 year school for students getting their associates degrees or transferring to a 4-year university. It is a very affordable school, for students looking to save money their first two years or not getting that much debt their first two years it is a great option for anyone. I love the classroom size, just like High School it is only 20-30 students, which means the classroom setting is better than a larger 100 plus students such as a 4-year university. The professors there do really care about their student's success since it is a much smaller school they can focus easily on each student in the class. They have amazing scholarship resources and they very supportive. I am autistic and even though colleges don't have a ton of accommodations, I was still able to take tests in the testing center, have extra time on tests which helped me in learning. Then when I talked to the service center about transferring over to my 4 year university in the fall, they were unbelievably helpful and supportive throughout my entire transfer process that I couldn't be more grateful for their help. I wouldn't do a single thing over, I made the best decision I could have ever made by doing Arapahoe Community College first for my first 2 years
Over all, I definitely recommend Arapahoe Community College. I love this school so much and the teachers here are amazing and passionate about their subjects. It has always been my dream to go to college and because ACc is so affordable I am able to Move Mountains!!!
Arapahoe Community College is a great first college campus. The campus goal is to give students a push in the right direction to achieve an associate's degree and transfer to a four-year institution. Students like me live off campus and can choose to take classes in Castle Rock, Parker, Littleton, or online for a wonderfully flexible schedule. As I was homeschooled through high school, I declined to participate in extracurricular campus activities in favor of retaining my previous groups. However, the academics offered at the campus are extremely diverse, covering as many topics as you could think of. The campus advisors are available every step of the way to offer insight and answer any questions you may have. The only problem with ACC in my personal opinion is that they do not treat evolution as the unproven theory that it is or offer any creationist perspectives. Aside from that, I highly recommend Arapahoe Community College to anyone who is unsure where to start their educational journey.
I have attended this college off and on part time for the past 5 years and each year seems to get better!
I'd say it's an excellent stepping stone into a proper 4-year college for those looking for a bachelor's degree. The teachers have always been approachable and the students are quite helpful. The layout is easy to understand and I feel like I can get between my classes easily enough.
It is said that first impressions guide the observer’s following thoughts for many future circumstances. Although we strive to understand others based on the time spent perceiving their actions, the validity of the first impression is an undeniable fact. It can leave a favorable image in one’s mind or that of adverse connotations. I have been a student at Arapahoe Community College for only a short time. However, in the hours spent on its campus, a community of driven educators and students has left me feeling incredibly glad for the decision made to attend. Having at this moment completed one semester as a full-time student, I would have changed nothing if given the chance. Beyond its in-depth classes, student life organizations provide activities to encourage undergraduates to connect and become involved in society. From passing out food on special occasions to assisting in voter registration, I am amazed at the opportunities thoughtfully provided for the students. It is unfortunate that it is not a four-year institution; because if it was, I would without hesitation remain there until I earn my Bachelor's degree.
I think that overall it is a really good school. I have a lot of friends that go to ACC and they also really enjoy going there. I also like how ACC participates in a concurrent enrollment program which allows high schoolers to take college level courses with permission from the school they attend. I would like to see more variety of courses offered at its Parker Campus. I also think that it should provide challenges to students that really look for one.
