American River College is a diverse place of higher learning and networking. Faculty strive for you to succeed in spite of budget cuts to education that our state is currently facing.

NaKisha from Antelope, CA
American River College is very diverse and the students are very accepting of other cultures. At ARC, the teachers seem to really be interested in you as an individual student and they try very hard to meet all accommodations as per distinguished. The atmosphere at American River is one of positive reinforcements, and acceptance is a great motivational tool.
