3 College Junior

Campus Resources: American River College has a beautiful library, several floors high with tons of books, computers, quiet seating areas for studying, and enclosed group study rooms. It also has a book store where you can purchase all your textbooks as well as food, clothing, backpacks, school supplies, test sheets, and other merchandise. Unfortunately there are still many portable classrooms that are in bad condition, but they will be removed and replaced with permanent classrooms soon.

College Junior

Career Services: I have never visited the career center at my school, I am starting my second semester in college and have not required their services yet.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: I have only used the library and except for always being very full, when I have been able to use the services it was a positive experience. Just not large enough to accommodate all of the students on campus.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: I have never had any issues with the computers at school..except not enough for the amount of students needing them.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: there are many helpful resources. there is tutoring and class assistance depending on the class. the library and other study areas make things very easy. also the student resource center provides all kinds of assistance that will help you succeed

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: my major is physiology. i am required to take science classes which fill up too quikly. this makes me unable to take the important classes i need so i have to take other classes that are not as helpful.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: as long as the student is involved and asks for assistance he or she will be successful. the problem is getting into classes they are usually full very quick.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: There are many computers for students and the library always has space.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Campus buildings are not labeled great for finding you class. To much violence, don't feel safe at night. Professors are good and after the first two weeks of semester class sizes are not to big.

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: the academics flexibility is ok we need to put in the hard work and as for help and academic is flexible

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The teachers at this school are all involved and very informative. I learned a lot in all my classes and was always satisfied with my teachers teaching styles.

5 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: This school offers a lot of aid to students and other opportunities. The only problem is I don't qualify for any of it.

5 College Sophomore

Online Courses: Online class are usually more difficult than regular classes because you have to plan your time for effectively in order to succeed. The work load is about the same as a regular class.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: I think that the campus is nice, I think it's unique in a way because it's part of a community college district made up of three schools. So it is easy to enroll in different classes on different campuses.

2 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I chose this grade only because I feel like the school doesn't provide enough classes for students, not only that the way they assign enrolling dates seems to be unfair, because I am a transfer student they push my enrollment date toward the end because I won't be getting an AA at that school, it's a little upsetting because my friend just lies on their application and say they are going to graduate there to get a sooner enrollment date even though they have no intention of doing so. Since I choose to be honest I get pushed toward the end and most of my classes get filled up and I'm stuck prolonging my school years. Seems as if their system is not efficient.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: For part of my major I wanted to study child development. There is a child development center on our campus where our lab was held. It is great experience.

5 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The financial aid I've received at this school has helped me excel here.

College Senior

Career Services: I began attending school here with a vision for what I wanted to do with my future. The Career Services at ARC was extremely helpful in guiding me towards choosing the right major for my future endeavors.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The computer network at American River College is excellent. The wireless networks are strong, the printing department staff are very helpful in accommodating your needs, and the computer labs are modern and user-friendly. I have never had a problem with computer network accessibility at American River College.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Too much paperwork and runaround but I'm sure it's the same with any other school.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: So far my experience has not been too terrible. I just do not enjoy the constant struggle to get into classes I need in order to progress towards my program. It's bound to happen with overcrowding but it doesn't make it any less stressful being put on a waiting list with no guarantee of making it into the class.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: All the campus resources are adequate. Im still learning my way around campus still. The only problem is the library gets crowded really fast.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I don't really have a specific major yet I'm still deciding. I was going to do psychology but it is a lot of work. I'm really interested in it though. I just dont want to be in college forever.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I actually like the professors they really interact with each student. There is vigorous work which really challenges you. Although the class registration is pretty difficult because everything is online. I tried to get into my classes this semester for spring 2013 eservices was down for a while. Which made me mad since my date was already a late one but oh well. Classes get full really fast community colleges are impacted now.

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: i was excited to join a program where the other students were just like me. its a program for adults who work and have been out of school for awhile.
