They have wonderful resources, the online database for research has answers for almost every question out there. There are lots of computers in the library, computer labs and Learning resource Center. They have a great tutoring staff and have very helpful programs to help students in all the classes they are in.

I got a job on campus, it was really easy and a lot of fun to do though it was only temporary. However, it gave me a pretty god taste on what the working world is like.

The campus is great with a good staff though there are some professors that are a bit hard. It's an older campus that is going under renovations and the new cafeteria is a great spot to hang out, get great food and good coffee.

The classes available are pretty generic. I feel like the classes fill up too quickly so it can take much longer to get through a major than you initially planned. I was a theatre major and the professors are fantastic there.

Sometimes it feels like the professors don't care much about the classes here because they teach at other schools.I think the curriculum is pretty standard and I feel like the professors are knowledgeable about what they are teaching. The class registration process is not the most user friendly.

There are a lot of great people going to school here, but there are a lot of students that put up religious posters and anti-abortion signs in the quad and can be very rude to everyone walking by.

Mostly, my school consists of working-class students with full-time/part-time jobs or families. They have many different roles in addition to being a student.

ARC is a wonderful Community College and I'm proud to be a student.

I love the dance class that i am in. It is kind of a break from all the studying and i can have fun.

Everything from athletics to aesthetics is amazing on campus. We recieve everything that we need and more. Personally the student center is my favorite.
Recent Alumnus 2013-02-12T03:43:52Z
I love the atmosphere on my campus. All of the teachers are very welcoming when meeting new student. Also every month we have a club opening in the quad where all of the student are able to sign up and learn about all the new clubs. Personally I was on the Womens Soccer team and we had a lot of school spirit. We always represented our school with pride and class.

We have a large computer lab in our library, which has printing as well as copying machines. We have ARC Guest Wifi all over our school. When using the computer you have your own personal work space which comes along with fast internet speed.

I took a math class once online. I really enjoyed the user friendly mymath lab and taking the tests online. It was less pressure to do so and I found myself very pleased with the way the professor handled answering back to our emails and what not.

American River provides all these services with just a few setbacks.

There is an abundance of computers at ARC.
There is the library with roughly houses 200 computers, and also the student center which houses more computers as well. Most students are reluctant to use the computers, as they are seemingly open for use more than half the time of their availability.

I had the "minus" simply because there is some racism around. Of course you'd want a good diversity on campus, but this also comes at a price. While waiting in line at the Financial Aide office, I overheard two guys imitating Asian accents which was disturbing. Though running into a racist person is rare.
The difference is huge when comparing a high school class to a college class. Some of your college classmates are old enough to be your parents, but they'll laugh at the same things you do which makes it all for the better. The different age groups help open your eyes about the world; everyone goes to college.

The computer network is really hard to connect to.
College Sophomore 2013-02-10T22:30:27Z
My experience has been wonderful overall so far. Professors are always there to help if the help is needed, especially with their office hours. The worst experience would be actually getting IN to classes. The school is very impacted. It's very disappointing sometimes because many of the students aren't actually committed to the class and take spots.
College Sophomore 2013-02-10T22:13:33Z
Being a Computer Science major is confusing at first. ARC requires an unnecessary pre-requisite "FAKE" code class that is required before you can take an actual, transferable course. This wasted an entire semester for me. Also, my experience with this class and the teacher was horrible. Since the classes are so impacted, I was forced to take a teacher with a very bad reputation.
This semester, I have a wonderful teacher for a C++ based class. Experience with him so far is great.
College Sophomore 2013-02-04T18:48:57Z
If there is any service in this area I have never received it or even herd of it. Usually the teachers do a good job of letting students know about services the school offers.
College Sophomore 2013-02-04T18:46:17Z
The online classes are pretty much the exact same information you get in a face to face class. The workload is the same (maybe a little more because you have to teach your self, but no more than the amount of time you would spend in a face to face class room. Registration is EXACTLY the same. Professor/student relationship is the same other than the fact that you are communicating via e-mail. Depending on the class there may be no peer-to-peer interaction but there are conversation boards available if the teacher decides to use one.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
Financial aid takes for ever. The office has only 2 windows and always has a long line waiting. It wouldn't be such a problem if you only had to go once, but once you submit a document, they find a different document you need to submit and have to wait in line again, or they don't give you the right information in the first place. It is pretty frustrating. It wastes hours of your time each semester.

I just started American River College 2 weeks ago, so it is too soon for me to judge.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
