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.
