Parrot Student Voices

There are many paths that our students have taken on their journeys to American River College and to Sacramento, California.
Here, our students tell a story from their past. Their stories may be about happy days, or sad events... but the stories are always told in their own words.

The students' stories have been organized by common themes.
Click on a theme below to see a playlist of student videos and their amazing stories.
