    I have been attending GWC for the past two years and a half and absolutely love this campus! My favorite part is the location of the campus which is about 4 miles away from the beach, can you say breezy?! I really enjoy the study spots the campus offers because it has many opened areas all over the campus making it easy to study with nature! :)

    Golden West has really passionate professors. The school is smaller than than the normal community so you get more one on one with your professors. This is a great school especially if you're thinking of transferring to a university.

    A good sized school offering a variety of courses with teachers that genuinely care about their students success in class as well as life. An AMAZING EOP/EFYS/CARE program with the most compassionate counselors who will do everything in their power to help students in need. Five out of five stars for a community college in Southern California that offers a smooth transition into a university or career.

    Golden West College, commonly known by many peers in the Orange County hub as G Dub can best be described as a college not too far out of reach out of the ideal community college. Though underrated compared to the nearby OCC, proclaimed to be the greatest community college in all of Southern California, Golden West is an easy to navigate school, with fantastic staff and plenty of opportunities to fulfill whatever requirements are necessary for most majors. Whether is is your goal to get an AA or transfer, Golden West offers many services to help you along the pathway to further education, up to and including academic counseling, a career and transfer center, tutoring, financial aid, library fully stocked with computers, and a passionate team of instructors.

    This community college feels as if I am home. Instructors and faculty may seem distant at first but if you actually hold a human conversation, they are interesting people to talk to and receive insight from.

    Golden West, so far, has been a great school. There are a lot of programs that can cover most, if not all, enrollment, book, and material fees. Involvement in the clubs and programs help to provide an excellent support system for their students.
