5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: At Golden West they offer an American Sign Language Interpreter certificate which is a two year program. They also offer internship on campus! Some of the professor s are deaf which is cool! My tutor is deaf and it pushes me to use my knowledge in ASL to communicate with her! The classes are very

difficult because you are learning a whole new language, alot of vocabulary is given each chapter. Alot of time needs to be spent practicing or you will not become a great Interpreter, which means not alot of work after graduation! The only thing is that I wish they would offer more ASL classes in the summer! Currently they only offer one ASL class. I was told it's because lack of funding!! Which makes things more difficult for you if you have to retake a class, summer becomes dead time for people who chose this field!! ASL needs to be recognized because there is a rapid growing need for ASL Interpreters!!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I went to OCC for a year taking GE classes until I figured out what I wanted to major in. I transferred to Golden West college because they offered the classes I needed to become an American Sign Language Interpreter. Im finishing up my first semester there and I loved it! All my professors have been really helpful and use good teaching techniques. The campus is smaller than OCC which I like better because it makes it easier to get to classes on time and the atmosphere is not so intimidating for newbies. This school offers so many free resources to help you pass your classes at the Learning Resource Center! There is no reason why someone should fail!! I use the free tutoring for two of my classes and both classes I'm holding an A!!

Academic Experience: This school is known for their Psychology program, so a lot if the staff have degrees in Psych. It feels good to know that someone went through the same things as current students are going through. If a student has a problem, chances are they can go talk to someone and get help to work it out.

Online Courses: I have taken a few online classes. The online courses are pretty simple and all run on the same basic system. Some of the courses are harder than others. Overall they are a good way to get the easy courses out of the way but i would not recommend taking a harder class online.

5 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: As a business major, I was required to take accounting, public speaking, economics, and statistics courses. I found the the curriculum to be challenging, but more importantly, I was immediately able to apply the skills I learned into my day-to-day duties at my current position. With this new earned knowledge, I receive a promotion and raises while in school.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: As a full time 8 to 5 professional, I thought that I may run into issues finding the classes I needed. However, this was never the case. With a solid counselor and a convenient combination of evening and online courses, I was able to obtain my AA in only two and a half years. I would highly recommend Golden West College over any of the for-profit online schools we are bombarded through advertising with on a daily basis. Save your money and go the traditional route, you will not regret it!
