In high school, chemistry was my least liked subject and I struggled with it. Since coming to ARC, I’ve discovered that chemistry is really interesting and now my favorite subject. I never thought before that I would pursue a career involving chemistry, let alone be a Beacon Tutor for it. Julia Chao, Studying Pharmaceutical Chemistry

In large universities it is often difficult to forge a relationship with professors. But at Folsom Lake College, I loved connecting with my passionate professors who were not only exceptional at making the classes fascinating, but structured the classwork in a relevant and useful way for future professionals. Joe Krezanoski, Director of Design, Opportunity Solutions International When the economy crashed, I moved to Elk Grove, sleeping on a couch with three bags of clothes and a fan. This was my motivation to go back to school. When I started at CRC I had to learn every subject from the bottom up because I was out of school for quite some time. The tools and study habits I learned at CRC made my transition to Sacramento State easier, allowing me to grow and further my studies. Michael McPherson, Applying to a Masters of Sociology Degree
