Student at This School - Grad Year 2013

Overall Rating

Over all the school does a great job for a community college. The staff is always friendly and has representatives to speak to you about any question about your education or classes to you. I came in as a high school student, and they have a whole office devoted to helping me, and other high school students with the non-traditional education route.


Student at This School - Grad Year 2013

Overall Rating

For being a recent high school graduate, Arapahoe Community College has made the transition from high school to college very easy for me. I love the overall atmosphere of the school, but there are a few concerns I have. The library is too small for the number of students that are using it. I think if the library were to be expanded or more study rooms were created in a separate section of the school I would be able to have a quiet environmnet to study and do homework in.
