It is okay. I was in a class last semester where the campus network had no reach. But Wi Fi is available at the cafeteria and places close to that place.

The resources are great at ARC. For the struggling students there are science resource centers, tutoring services and Beacon services, everything free of charge and available to any student that seeks help.
We have a new cafeteria with subway, starbucks and so forth. The library is not really well equipped, the do not have the books that are often required for classes and they close at 10:00pm. I wish they had a 24hrs library.

Students at ARC are from lower middle class, to high middle class. Many students are full time students, that are pursuing future studies in engineering, medical school, and psychology. There a lot of good science students that are dedicated, and many students are there only for financial aid. The latter category are found usually in the lower math and english classes.

I am a computer engineering major at American River College. My experiences with my professors have been great. My schedule is always packed with math, physics, computer science, and general education courses with a heavy workload. The facilities are not to be the best, as can be expected from a community college, but it does provide a place to learn and gain knowledge. I know I am able to get any internship or job that I am interested in with the help of the awesome career center.

I enjoy my experience at ARC, which is why I continue going their. Most professors are great, with a real passion for teaching and helping others. The workload is manageable and they have free tutoring all over campus with long hours. The only thing that could use some updating is the registration process. Appointments are definitely the way to go, but even those are hard to schedule at times.

I',m an art major. I am learning to become a master glass blower. I am earning my general ed and some units for my degree here at ARC. I LOVE being an art student here. I get asked lots of questions about the projects I carry around (there are lockers to use if you want one) and the classes are always filled with a variety of people and age groups. The faculty is all wonderful, with a serious passion for the arts.
College Sophomore 2013-07-30T21:14:45Z
I enjoy the format of the online courses. Very easy for me to follow. I enjoy the availability of going to class when I want, but also having a deadline of assignments to keep me motivated. The registration process is easy. We meet up one time at one the first day of class, and any questions are answered in person about registering. After that, email is that way of communication. As long as you have a teacher who checks email often, communication is usually better than the traditional classroom experience in my opinion.

Able to work with teachers if you disagree abut a grade or believe the teacher may have missed something.

There are many resources available at this school that can assist in academic success.
College Senior 2013-07-29T20:07:36Z
my school is quite organized with some mishaps but the staff is very helpful and works well to make you happy.
College Senior 2013-07-26T00:02:10Z
Honestly it really does depend on the person. If you are great at working on your own and self- driven, like myself, then it's the perfect class. I personally can do great both online and in class. It depends on the teacher to be involved as well. Some teachers are great at replying to questions quickly, and some are slower or non-responsive, which would be bad if it's an online course. I would recommend checking about the teacher who will be doing the online course first before taking the class.The features are pretty unique to a certain degree, i guess. The workload depends on the teacher as well, but i've always found homework and tests easier because it's not in the quiet of the class, which never really does the job for me. The registration is very simple and easy, though some teachers require you put your image and introduce yourself, which is simple but takes a little more time. Student teacher/peer to peer interaction is different too, you don't see the people, but you communicate through critique of works. I've had good experience overall in online courses.

I normally would only need a computer if i was in a waitlist in a class and got in and needed a computer for that certain computer required class. Other times i bring computers to waste away long hours between classes. The wireless connection is a simple login and you're in. There is a special computer lab for anyone doing homework. Art students have first priority for some computers with special programs, which i thought was brilliant. If you're in the library or computer lab, printing is with money, but if you're in the special art class with computers and printers and promise to print art things only, it's free.
College Senior 2013-07-25T23:52:07Z
I think it's actually been pretty good. I am actually a full time student, so i don't work for work to get in my way, but i do have work at home to take care of. And because i take so many classes, i need hours of classes to be different to fit, and i usually make it work.
College Senior 2013-07-25T23:49:21Z
I would say the art program. The fact that people are more likely to get hired when finished a certificate or degree in the art field in ARC rather than an institute or university says a lot. As a matter of fact, people are actually coming from institutes/universities to ARC to get their degree in art new media.
College Senior 2013-07-25T23:46:42Z
I am not that much of a campus activity person, but i have gone to the library, which is pretty good. I found the athletic and PE grounds to be enjoyable. From what i can see, the campus is clean and easy to enjoy, especially as they start making it better and better with the construction that's going on.
College Junior 2013-07-16T03:04:24Z
I found many of the entry level classes felt more like remedial classes. I went into honors classes for the challenge.
College Junior 2013-07-16T03:00:18Z
There are many different clubs that promote a variety of issues. They range from LGTB to gerontology and engineering. The diversity within the clubs in great. There are also usually many people hanging out in various places willing to interact.
College Junior 2013-07-16T02:57:49Z
Some times there are availability issues as well as a rotating class schedule that sometimes blocks advancement. Overall however, the classes for GE are available.
College Junior 2013-07-16T02:54:09Z
The teachers in both the child care area and the in class teachers are wonderful. Knowledgeable, caring, and invested, the staff excel at what they do. The amount of information given about the profession in addition to necessary curriculum, is astounding. From scholarship information to best ways to utilize electives in a depressed market, these people REALLY care about the students doing well.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
The financial aid process is confusing and unclear. They don't have a lot of help either so I was unable to complete financial aid and recieve any money.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
I would say is good but is not the best one
College Junior 2013-07-02T19:31:56Z
I honestly don't get as much out of an online course as I do from a face to face lecture class. I do, however, find it easier to fit into schedules and basically write my own. The workload is piled on pretty high, as my only experience with an online course is my current 6 week Marketing class. 16 weeks crammed into 6 and online will definitely cram a workload. The registration process is more involved than a face to face class with an orientation and quizzes to go along with it. Professor/Student relationships are really less than average comparatively. Peer-Peer interactions are less than average, although we are required to post discussions and reply to other student's posts. It's a great way to take a class with a busy schedule but I will only be doing this again if I absolutely have to.
College Junior 2013-07-02T19:24:49Z
My school has an extremely diverse campus. From ages 17 to 60, ARC offers great courses that are appropriate for any age. Professors and staff create an above average environment for all ages in the classes to interact and learn. The school actively encourages political, religious, and extracurricular involvement through promoting, petitioning, and vending in the quad areas and on the bulletin boards around campus. The topics and areas involved are anywhere from Gay Marriage, religious clubs and resources, music interests, exercise opportunities, and national/international pride resources.
College Junior 2013-07-02T19:17:48Z
At American River College, the professors are extremely exceptional at including students in the learning process and creating engaging classroom settings. Each professor that I've had has been very knowledgeable and helpful toward my and other student's needs and inquiries. The registration process is a little less than ideal but I've managed to obtain all of the classes I have wanted or needed, so I cant complain. ARC has great study programs that I have yet to have taken advantage of, but will soon be doing. Some of which are WAC (Writing Across Curriculum) and RAD (Reading Across Disciplines).

I'm a new business major student, and I couldn't love it more. I was nervous that I'd be in courses with the typical "Business" professionals and I'd be out of my league. The truth is, there are students of all ages and walks of life in this field. It's a diverse and interesting field to be in, and I feel blessed to be able to take my dreams higher with it. The workload is heavy but definitely doable, and even better, I smile while doing the work and participating in lectures because I love it!
Sorry, there are no reviews.
