2 College Junior

Overall Experience: American River College is very lackluster for me. I was hoping for a fun atmosphere where people were all pursuing their dreams. Instead, it's just thousands of people bustling around from class to class and not really creating the environment I hoped for from college. Their online services are mediocre and go offline frequently. It is not even possible to look at available classes unless you are already enrolled. All in all, the school will work fine for transferring, just don't come here looking for a typical "college experience".

Overall Experience: Technology equipped campus with many resources available to all students to enable all to become successful with earning the degree or certificate attempted.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Decent campus and decent professors. Advisors are not much help you are better off doing your schedule yourself and doing your research of what you need.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far I find the staff very friendly and alert to the needs of the students.

Academic Experience: I have sometimes struggled at American River College, simply because my opinions seem to differ greatly from some of my professors.

Campus Resources: It has been very easy for me to stick to my degree program here at American River College. I have mainly used the IGETC and Transferable worksheets they have available in the Counseling Center rather then counseling appointments. However I do recommend counseling appointments if you need them. Just expect to wait a few hours for your appointment if you are a walk in. Also, the Transfer Center is wonderful. The people who work there are very positive.

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition is very well priced to the quality of education I have obtained. This is for the theater apartment alone.

Career Services: I am transfering, and so far my units have transfered seamlessly. I also appreciate some of my theater professors who have really encouraged me to pursue what I want to do. I have mainly done the transfer work on my own by using the IGETC worksheet and student handbook.

Academic Flexibility: There's a TON of classes to choose from, so there is always a way to work them around your schedule.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: There's always something going on that makes you chuckle, in the same way you chuckle about a crazy uncle. Endearing and goofy.

5 College Senior

Career Services: The school really tries to work with you in order to ensure you are able to transfer to a university.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: The workload is about average for what you would expect from college courses, there's nothing over the top.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: I have not had a bad professor yet. Most teach at the local university, so you know you're getting your money's worth. All of the professors are kind, willing to help, and passionate about what they teach.

Campus Resources: The library is high tech, has a large computer lab, and an extremely friendly staff. There is always some sort of campus activity happening, be it a club meet, a plant sale, or some sort of festival. There is also a brand new student center that is beautiful. The school is always improving the buildings so that they can be more high-tech.

3 College Junior

Career Services: Since this school doesn't have the major that I am interested in I will have to transfer to another school and get help from there with finding a job. As far as the availability to take prerequisites and general ed classes, I think this school will be very helpful when it comes to transferring.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: The school doesn't have specifically my major, but I can take the prerequisites for the program that I plan on applying to. My major is Sonography or Ultrasound Tech, but because there is no such a major, I had to chose Nursing.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: Class registration process is easy, the problems occur when a student has a late enrollment date and doesn't have any choice on what classes to take because most of them are already closed.

Campus Resources: The library is very organized and helpful at any time when needed. I enjoy spending my time studying outside on the patio whenever I have time to go there during the day.
