4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: American River College has one of the best theater programs in the area. The teacher put their entire hearts into what they do.

3 College Freshman

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

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.

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.
