American River College Reviews
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!
American River College is a great place to go if you are looking to save money and transfer to a better school. I have had classes with all kinds of different people from refugees, to adults, or people just looking to better themselves with education. This has opened my eyes to the different reasons people go to community college, and reduces the stigma that people who go here are not smart. I have learned that that could not be further from the truth. I have found challenging classes and helpful professors that will help me during my time here.
At first, I wasn't so keen on attending a local community college, but once I started really paying attention to the professors I chose, my experience became fantastic. Do your research, and this school is worth it!
