Golden West College Reviews
Of the three Coast Community Colleges that I attended, Golden West is the best in the district! The programs seem to be, if not better financed, more aggressively structured, allowing the student to never feel the pains of an outdated class. Additionally, the campus has the best combination of architecture and nature that I've seen in the district. Climbing vines surround the quad and cafeteria, every building is lined with trees, and there's a wonderful (and often empty) garden, with more than one walking path!
I have had a tough path figuring out what I want to be when I grow up. Other schools had left me drifting without direction. At Golden West, the staff is exceptional. If they do not know the answer, they find out and follow up with you! The professors and science courses are easily the best I have experienced for community college level.
From previous experience at my other community college, Goldenwest college has really helped me move forward and try harder to achieve a better GPA. The professors really took into consideration when I was having difficulties in a subject and taught me a lot through out the semesters. The location of the school was also 10 minutes away from my house and compared to other schools, Goldenwest had a different feeling. The environment was really nice and I enjoyed the effort they took to maintain a safe and beautiful.
