In my opinion, American River collage is an outstanding community college in many different aspects. As a foreigner student in American River College I have to admit that I have always felt welcomed and encouraged by the professors, staff and even students. over the past years, I have witnessed the growth of American River college in every aspect. There are new Buildings built and improvements made every year in order to provide a better and comforter atmosphere for the new and continuing students. It's an outstanding feeling to be noticed, counted and wanted in a large community like American River College. It's tough to be negative when you're encompassed in positivism. I'm delighted and honored to be a member of American River College family. Go Beavers!

I liked how simple it was to enroll in the College. Many colleges try and make you overcome many obastacles however, this college it was as simple as 1,2,3! There isn't much I would really like to change about this college. It's systems are efficient and effective, and I see no reason to try and change something that is already working.
I am currently a student at American River College. I appreciate all that this school has offered to me, mainly the fine arts department. Some things I would like to see to improve our educational system would be some teacher reform - I have witnessed many teachers only there for a paycheck and that doesn’t benefit any students. There are many teachers that have been let go but are eager to teach and learn with the students, that’s who we need more of on campus. Student surveys about the teachers could improve this. Also we need reform as to how we are taught. The art department has opened my eyes to how school should be - about really learning and expanding your mind rather than the mindless memorization and regurgitation of facts for tests and grades. I want to come out of higher education WITH a higher education rather than a glorified piece of paper and student loan debt.
