I think that Golden West overall as a college is wonderful. The campus is beautiful and the student body seems to be quite pleasant. The campus is easy to get around and the staff have been very helpful. If I did not know about Golden West and was not attending, I would hope that someone would recommend this college to me. I am grateful to be a student here at Golden West!
