The Diversity Makes It Interesting – The student body is very diverse, which is what makes the college interesting. However, activities usually just include studying. There are many races: Indian, Filipino, Hmong, Jewish, Caucasian, Jamaican, Mexican, African-American, etc. There are just as many religions. And we all seem to get along better for our differences and offer different view-points in and out of class. However, most of the students seem to be unemployed and those who are employed often miss classes. The ones who miss classes are least accepted in the class.

Never Had a Problem! I've never seen the network go down, and the page always loads as soon as I click it. Anytime I don't know how to get to a specific school page, I can ask someone and they're always willing to help. The printing process is fast. It's very easy to click, print, and go.

Need More Classes – The up-side is that professors make time for the students and know their stuff, but the down-side is that getting into a class you need is difficult with such a large student body and only a few of the same classes. When you have prerequisites to take and lower division courses you need fulfilled before transferring, not being able to complete those courses within a reasonable time can be frustrating. This is especially true if you are in a hurry.

The School Does Good – The most difficult thing to deal with is the parking. It's horrible and hard to find a parking spot. Most of the classes I take are online and it's very convenient for me not to deal with the parking lots.

Class Registration – The school is a great learning environment but the one hassle is getting into the classes you want and need due to registration dates. Some students get registration dates that are before regular registration dates.

ARC Preschool – I am taking ECE320. In this class I work 1/2 the day at the college day care center. The center follows the philosophy of Reggio Emelia that children spend more time engaged in learning, when they are able to choose topics that interest them. I agree, I am much more interested in the classes I choose for my self in college then I ever was in K-12 when I learned just whatever the teacher had lined up for us to learn that day.

Academic Experience – I have been attending American River College for three semesters now and have had a great experience with most of my professors. They have provided a great curriculum and really tried to accept all students into their class room. The work load was very manageable, of course you have to put all of time time and studying, but it is all doable. There is a lot of help offered to students at this College, tutors, computer labs, and beacons are always there to help. The only complaint I have about the school is the availability of the counselors; counselors are very important in an academic field because they guide and educate students about their career options and opportunities.

I have found that online courses are very well laid out and are a great convenience for the person that needs minimal supervision. I find that I get as much out of the class as I am willing to put in to the class.

American River College offers computers for student use in the Library and several other on campus areas. It is easy to get on a computer, and print whatever you need. The only problem is that the library should be opened earlier during the school semester.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
