To Golden West College its McFadden. I don't like Edinger because it gets hairy around Beach Blvd in Huntington Beach. McFadden and Beach is also a bit dicy but less traveled.
Make sure you sign up for a locker so you can take a shower in their facilities. This is great. Ride to campus, take a shower, get your own locker and change clothes. Got to Student cafeteria and get a continental breakfast...all before your first class.
I knew the swimming pool maintenance man and he used to let me swim early in the morning before the team started their workouts. Olympic size pool. If you have a good bike, you need to park it in the pool's engine room where nobody can get to it. You still have to lock it up.
On Edinger and Golden West Street, on the south/west corner, there's a good deli shop called De Simone. The bake their own Italian bread and roast their own turkey. They even have Cuban sandwiches. This is not a chain type place like Quiznos and Subway. No frills, just good food. Ask the locals.
