Golden West College is a very nice community college. There are good transfer opportunities and the theater department is above par compared to its peers. The atmosphere at Golden West is friendly and supportive.
Ron from Huntington Beach, CA
I like Golden West, i've been attending since 2005 and have had the best experiences with my teachers and student body alike. I've found the teachers are very helpful. The campus is small and intimate so you don't get overwhelmed with students everywhere all the time.
