Arapahoe Community College Reviews
ACC is a standout amongst all community colleges for its impressive size, affordable tuition, and highly experienced faculty, some of whom teach classes at major universities like CSU and UCCS, meaning that you obtain a five-star education at a fraction of the cost. ACC is highly progressive on racial and gender issues, striving to make students of all backgrounds feel welcomed. Oftentimes, though, their emphasis on this becomes an agenda, not positive values, sometimes putting students from minorities on the spot or disrupting classes and events to bring up politics and issues that most of the students don't want to talk about, and most assuredly not pay for. All in all, though, ACC is a fantastic school with some fantastic professors, and is well worth the low low tuition!
I have enjoyed being at Arapahoe Community College for the most part but in these times it is hard not to be in class and getting instruction. For some of my classes, I am having to teach myself the course material and my teachers don't appear to know what they are doing. On the other hand, some of my other teachers have been very kind and are excellent teachers who allow us to succeed! The student life is a little hard to come by this year but what I have seen of it has been fun and the people are friendly! Overall I have had a great experience at ACC!
I think it really just depends on what teachers you end up with. My first semester was fall of 2019 and I had a great experience with my teachers, take Daniel Gore for history! He is awesome! However, my second semester was a bust, I still took one of Gore's history classes which was the highlight but my other teacher for literature was not the best. That plus the impact the virus made this year made it impossible to learn as much as I feel like I should, it seemed like a waste of money taking literature at Arapahoe.
