American river college has provided a great place for me to continue my education. The campus is large and offers a wide array of class options (although with all this gov BS classes are filling quickly and being cut)(p.s. THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES!) I am just finishing my first year at ARC and have soaked up so much knowledge i dont know where to put it all. haha just kidding. all my teachers have been backed by atleast 30 years of teaching in the fields they are in, and all were very helpfull and easy to work with. ARC overall just provides the right atmosphere for me to properly further my education, and achieve my goals. Oh and it does help that it's loaded with pretty girls!
