Golden West College Top Questions

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?


I wish I had known how to take great notes. Instead of jotting down quick notes the teacher throws at you, I wish i'd learn how to neatly organize notes to study for test or final.


Before going to Golden West College, I wish I had been more knowledgeable about financial aid options. My first semester, I paid full price for tuition and books. Later on as I talked to my counselor, professors, and classmates, I learned that California residents are eligible for free tuition and that there are several ways to purchase new and used books at discounted prices.
