    I loved it. I got help from my counselor every semester making sure I was taking the right classes and on track. I was a competing athlete and my counselor made sure that I was taking enough units to stay eligible, but not too much to where I was overwhelmed. When I first started at ARC, I slacked off and dropped a lot of my classes and even failed one. I owe it to my counselor that I got back on track and worked my butt off to still receive my AA in two years (:

    When I first began College, I must say that I was what one would call, well, embarrassed. With a 4.0 G.P.A senior year of high school, I was sure that I would go straight to a University. Due to personal catastrophies going on in my life, visiting campus' was the last thing on my mind. So, with a fear tears which eventually turned into heartless shrugs, I finally exepted the fact that I was going to have to go to a Community College, American River College known the less. I must say now, with a year later, my Generel Ed halfway complete, and some cash still in my pocket, this was the best decisipn that I was thrust into. There are so many reasons why I enjoy being at this College, and I can honsetly say that I couldn't see myself growing more as a person anywhere else. First of all, I love the people. There aren't cliques or popularity contest here. You have people of all types of races, ages, and cultures. It's like one of those cartoons from the 90s with squggly art. No one here is the same!

    I am enjoying being here, not because its a smaller campus with more people I've grown up with, but because I've got a 3.0 GPA the entire first year and it wasn't even that hard to accomplish. Going to this college is a cheaper alternative to complete your general ed and if you go to your classes and stay focused and motivated you can transfer and get your Bachelors degree in less time.
