What is your overall opinion of this school?

Golden West College is located in Huntington Beach city which is a nice city, and It takes 5 to 8 minutes to drive from school to Huntington Beach. The campus has large parking lots; I have never spent more than 5 minutes to find the parking spot. Moreover, the campus book store is conveniently located at the center of the school.

A very safe college, where the professors actually care about getting to know you and making sure you have the tools you need to pass. They make sure you’re doing alright, as well as ensure that they are always there for you should you need anything.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think it is a good school, if you want to complete your general education and get a degree here. Then your at the right place. It is a community college anyways, so it's good for what it is. Staff is nice, students are pretty good, not too exciting. All the resources are there in your reach, and it is a trustworthy school. Best part is that the counselors are actually helpful. Food is ok, and the social life needs to be improved. It's the type of college you go for school, or sports. Not for like parties, or like being really social. The school is open campus, so it can be a little scary, but there is security. Either way not bad of a school. Not the best either.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I was surprised and pleased by how much the professors really want the students to learn. In my opinion, I got a better education at GWC (for practically free!) than many students get in their first two years at a four year University that costs a fortune.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the campus. It is big enough to where you don't feel like you're walking on top of other people, but small enough that all the classes are relatively in the same area. I really like how there are all sorts of places to sit down and/or study. They recently finished building a brand new student services center which looks very amazing and modern and they are working on construction for some other buildings. Most teachers here are very personable and accessible both in and out of the classroom. It is a great school to get any student ready for transfer!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Golden West College is a great college to start off your education. I've met amazing friends here, and the professors are fantastic as well. We don't have a great science department but ratemyprofessor.com always helps when finding the best professors in each department.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall I feel golden west is a great school for those who didn't do great in high school but want to try and still get an education. The school has four great specialty departments: Police, Nursing, Floral, and Beauty. If a student is taking on a course load for one of these fields they should excel. However on the other side of the spectrum the GED classes are anything but up to par, none of the math teachers I have had so far seem to be able to teach. The english and history department seem to be decent, and science is like playing Russian roulette with the teachers some are good others are just there. The extra curricular classes are much like the science department some are good and others suck. Another trade school is auto shop on campus and I highly discourage anybody to take this class until the teachers are replaced with people who actually know something about cars. Campus life overall is good, most students are friendly and its relatively easy to make new friends especially in the student center. The on campus food is also amazing, they have anything you could want and it all excels in taste even if a little messy. Living on or near campus could pose a problem for some students because there is no school run housing. All nearby housing is apartment complexes that would have to leased. Overall Golden West Community College is an okay school that really just needs to replace certain teachers to become a great school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I honestly love this school there are so many people from different backgrounds and so many people you can relate to as a person. It's easy and making friends isn't really that hard. There are many new buildings and there a coffee cart that sales very good cofffee.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The faculty, especially their counselors, are extremely beneficial to visit. They are incredibly helpful in providing you with a sense of direction. The Student Success Center is also an extremely beneficial tool - and the free tutoring for students by students is extremely helpful considering how expensive the surrounding living area is. I love the campus and all that they have to offer. Just wish they had a prominent classical strings section in the music department.
