Arapahoe Community College is an amazing school for people who are focused on getting into the work force. If you go into this expecting to learn a bunch of theoretical information that may not be applicable to your job you will be let down. The teachers and staff are very hands on and are usually very available if you need to get in contact with them. The teachers in the computer networking department are all very experienced and highly certified in their field. I have learned so much more than I was expecting to when I started my degree here. I highly recommend this school to anyone who is looking to join the workforce with pertinent knowledge, and do it quickly!

I loved my time at ACC! Most of the teachers I had were professional, highly trained, and cared about their students. It was both very affordable and had a great location that was very easy to reach by bus, train, or car. The food in the cafeteria area was good, if not a little overpriced. The student store and bookstores were very nice as well. There were also quite a few on-campus events almost every week, though I never attended any of them as I was too busy. I would absolutely recommend this college to anyone looking to start (or restart) their education path.
Making the decision to attend Arapahoe Community College has been one of the best life decisions I've ever made for myself. I started as a Journalism and Contemporary Media major and have been published in the school newspaper five separate occasions, I've been published in the school art and literary magazine once, and have also been the co-chief editor of the same literary magazine. Ive been showcased in multiple art exhibitions put on by the school and have just changed my major to the Commercial Photography program that ACC has just opened up.

Over all, the instructors are highly knowledgeable in their respective fields and hold the stident's quality of education in their top three priorities.

The school, itself, is extremely clean and easy to navigate.

I'd rate Arapahoe Community College a 9/10 and would attend again after graduation.
