3 College Sophomore

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.

Career Services: Honestly, i am not sure but i am sure it is great.

Academic Experience: The program for my degree really helps gives me an idea of what i will be doing in my career. The amount of work it takes to get their i would say is pretty far. It is the typical amount of general education classes any student goes through. Some classes are harder than others but when looking at the overall goal it is all worth it.

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!

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Its an overall good school, very green for its location. staff and people are friendly.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I love Golden West College. If I did not get accepted into another great school, Cal State Long Beach, I would probably stay at GWC and attempt a second associates degree. The overall atmosphere of Golden West's campus in so peaceful. The professors I have had have been pretty great with exception to a select few. There is such a huge diversity in cultures at the school and it is so great to meet other students from different walks of life. Classes are fairly priced, parking is incredibly cheap, and the possibilities at this school are endless. The first day of school my freshman year was so nerve wracking. I was 45 minutes early to school because I had not checked out the campus prior and had no idea where my first class was. I remember walking around for a half hour and within that half hour I had asked several people for directions but I has so nervous that I could not comprehend anything these helpful people were saying. I eventually found my class 5 minutes before my class started and soon realized that my class of freshmen all had similar experiences so not only was I able to laugh about it but I made friends within minutes of being in my first class. I recommend printing out a campus map (or 4) and keep one inside your binder or in your pocket for easy access because it may be a small school but everyone gets lost.

2 College Junior

Overall Experience: Golden West College is not my first pick. The only reason I go to this school is because I only have a 10 minute commute and I work in the center right next to it. I have had horrible experiences with the faculty, especially the counselors. They act like they hate their job and like you are the LAST person they would like to be dealing with at the moment. They all have little patience and were rude when I asked questions. They discouraged me and said, word for word " You are not smart enough and not rich enough" to go to my dream school. I was given zero alternatives and zero hope. I've gone in multiple times with questions, looking for guidance and help and have almost always rush me out with no answers. Professors are a hit and miss. I have had some that were legitimately crazy and horrible at their job. There were only two professors from GWC that I had that actually inspired me and cared about me and my fellow classmates. The library is small. Personally it's not my cup of tea to study in. It is too bright and there is a giant wooden staircase that creaks really loud at the slightest amount of pressure. There also aren't any couches in the actual library.
