I would say that the career prospects are great because most to the students here live in real times and have done extensive work already on the job market here in Sacramento, CA. Therefore, the value of a degree from this school is very high in that most students transfer immediately after graduating over to a 4 year college. I feel the quality of the Alumni is wonderful, with all of the memorabilia you're able to purchase to represent the school as your out and about during your everyday life. as well as the synergy of the students. I work for Sacramento State University and they do a great job recruiting at the school to get students interested in attending a 4 year college upon graduating from a junior college. The career center and the rest of the services is awesome!
Review American River College
The faculty and teachers are so helpful and care about the education and personal goal of the students attending. There are so many programs and services that helps student what they need like TRIOs where unrepresented groups of students are welcome and are provided with financial, academic success and support, and tutoring. The school is pretty much diverse with different students with many different backgrounds and culture.
American River College is affordable, and has a great college atmosphere. I highly recommend high school students to enroll at ARC to save money and to explore possible majors. I really enjoyed my experience at ARC and will always remember the opportunities this college provided for me. Thank you American River for the unique and wonderful experience you provide for your students!
