Most Helpful Review for American River College

I am a freshman attending American River College and I have learned a lot academically. The professors I had last semester were very knowledgeable about their subject they were teaching, but they also expect a lot out of their students. I had about five to six hours of homework a week and three to seven hours of studying each week. The professors are enjoyable and try to stay on their good side.

    American River College is a super laid-back community college, in my opinion, with the exception of having student responsibilities. The professors really are the best and want their students to succeed. There's something for everyone here.

    The teachers are a hit and miss, but that's to be expected with community college. I've had some of the best teachers, and some of the worst. However, it's incredibly cheap, and the overall education is adequate.
