The classes are great and the priority registration I have is just awesome, for it let me register for classes way before everyone else. I had all my classes enrolled before registration opened for other people.

Working full time and being an above average student can be hard. I found that online courses alleviated stress related to commuting, parking fees and missing work.

So far I have taken two online courses and I liked them. It is different from a traditional classroom experience in the sense that you don't have a professor reminding you when assignments are due; you have to be responsible and remind yourself. Due to this, it can be hard to forget. You also lose that face-to-face interaction with the professor. It is also harder to reach the professor if have any questions. The positive side of online classes is that it is more flexible and easier to work around your schedule. You decide when you want to do an assignment as long as it is done by the due date. I personally like being able to decide when I want to get an assignment done because I might be busier on other days and not be able to do it.

I attended another college for one semester and I got lucky that all classes I took there were transferable to American River College. Due to that, I wasn't far behind. Since I am majoring in Nursing, my classes are challenging, but they work with my schedule. I like taking my General Science courses in the mornings, that way I have the rest of the day to study and do homework. American River is very flexible in working with your schedule if you have work or other priorities because they offer so many classes.

I'm a Nursing major and because of this, it is expected that my classes be challenging. I have taken Chemistry already and received a A- in that class. It was very challenging, but I learned a lot. Currently, I am taking Bacteriology and the professor is amazing. I also currently have an A in that class. Since Nursing is such a popular major, you really have to work hard if you want to succeed. Don't except the classes to be easy because they won't be. They are designed to challenge you.

The student center is great. I would go there alot, because the library was always packed. I would also see the tutors there, they were friendly, but they would just give you the answer, instead of explaining why the answer is what it is. The library is nice, but its hard to find a place to sit, or find an available computer. The library always feesl really crowded.

I like the diversity at my college campus. There is people of all different races, and its interesting to get to know them and see their view of things. ARC always has good academic programs, although i have not been apart of them, I always see flyers everywhere about them. As for campus life, i would like ARC much better if it were a bit cleaner. It always smells kind of funky and the trash cans are also filled to the top. But other than that ARC is a good campus.

All the computers work very well, and always have high speed and reliability. Printing on campus is also very convenient and inexpensive. Anytime i bring my laptop on campus i have never had any trouble getting wireless access. Overall the computer network at ARC works very well.

I am always quick to receive my BOG assistance but ARC's financial aid office has been slow to review my applications thus far.

Haven't really used many of them but from what I can see they are about par.

Was not impressed....Teacher never responded to my emails.

Very religious :( I believe school politics should leave religious views out of decisions as much as possible.

Many resources for help. Library is brand new as well as student resource center. EServices helps you sign up for classes; that's a new building too. Their are many tutoring spots to go to as well that have long hours of availability if you are stuck with homework you cant figure out and the professors office hours dont match with your schedule..

I think the education I received is well worth the money I paid. I think the unit fees are high, but I recieved the Bog Fee Waiver, so this didnt affect me so much.

I've had an absolutely wonderful experience with great teachers, excellent education, great friends, and a full sense of preparedness when going on to my next step in life.

They mostly just link back to the counselors, but it is a very helpful service that aims to get you on track and to your goal as fast as possible.
Recent Alumnus 2013-05-11T05:18:47Z
There's great access to counselors and class materials. They have a shuttle for the parking lot, elevators, a huge parking structure and a great study lab.

Doesn't always work, is slightly slow at school and nonexistent on my phone.

Has a great library with various books in every subject, many of which will come in handy for the research papers throughout the semester. They also have a plethora of computers and study spaces for people to work in, as a well as circulation desk with most of the textbooks for copying/daily loan.

I find the enrollment process to be rather slow and a bit of a hassle. There are classes I need right now that are open but there is an enrolement appointment date and I can not pick any classes until that date has passed. The classes that I need may be unavailable by the time I can actually pick they. This is very frustrating.
College Senior 2013-05-07T22:07:21Z
I enjoy all of the classes unique to my major. I am a criminal justice major. They don't really feel like work to me, and are the most enjoyable classes. I wish I could take more classes like that rather than general education or core classes.

Everyone is involved in their own troubles. Most of the students have other things going on like children, work, or just every day life. So when they are at the college they are focused on the matter at hand, their education. They are still polite and kind, but there isn't really time for socialization.
College Senior 2013-05-02T18:24:11Z
They give the information i need for the working world its plain and simple. You either get or you don't. the classes are small so they are able to help everyone.

I'm a Design Technology major with a concentration of Architecture and most of my classes are what i expected they would be. They don't have crazy elective or to many prerequisites to go through and the professors apply not only theory but practical experience in the classes.
College Senior 2013-05-02T18:13:55Z
They are good people that chose to return to or continue there education.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
