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 am a student in the California Early College Academy (CECA) which is a joint high school and community college program. I have taken courses at ARC for the past year. Some professors are very engaged and make the classes interesting. They provide all the necessary tools to succeed. It is very demanding as a high school student, but I have done well.
Recently, we have noticed some bias by security staff against African American students at our ARC satellite campus in North Natomas. That as been disappointing for many of the CECA students. We hope it is just an aberration and that the positive diverse environment that we have experienced at ARC over the past year will continue.
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.
