What Makes CRC Special?

Cosumnes River College in Sacramento, CA has a reputation for really connecting with its students. If you think big colleges are distant and impersonal, you just haven't discovered CRC. Hear students, staff, faculty and administrators explain just what makes this two-year community college a one-of-a-kind place to get an education. The video was shot by two students in the CRC Radio, TV and Film Production Department using HD cameras and a jib boom. RTVF Professor Gary Martin produced this video that features a rendition of the college's spirit song, "Fight on Cosumnes."

CRC Academics

General Education
The college is committed to the principle of providing a broad general education that includes: Natural Sciences, Social and Behavioral Sciences, Humanities and the Arts, Language, and Critical Thinking. The college continues to offer other courses that enhance life-long learning and prepare students for the needs and demands of everyday life. All of these skills help create a balanced life in a democratic society that is diverse in its social, cultural, and educational backgrounds.
