Cuesta College Reviews
Overall, I think Cuesta College is the best community college in California. What I disliked was the science faculty, counseling staff, and the people working in admissions. Most, but not all, of the science faculty make their courses unnecessarily difficult and give students busy work. However, they are more lenient and more caring than science faculty at a four-year university. Moving on, the counseling staff is incompetent as they have no pre-professional (like pre-medical or pre-dental) knowledge. Oh, and I believe that the Cuesta Cashier is racist. On that note, Cuesta lacks a diverse population and can be sometimes overtly racist. But, what I liked outweighs what I disliked. What I liked the most were the social science courses and the social science faculty. The courses were really easy yet informative, and the faculty are beyond friendly. I would definitely recommend this college if you are a social sciences major. Another plus is that Cuesta has a small student population.
I have enjoyed my experience at Cuesta College. The administrative staff have been extremely helpful every time I have needed assistance from admissions to transferring. The financial aide department is consistent and easily accessible. All of Cuesta's classes are in the middle of the campus with parking all around. There has never been a challenge to park and get to class. The teaching staff has been excellent as well. They are there not only to teach you but to also help you succeed. Struggling in Math? Not a problem, the math lab is open four days a week with excellent tutors. This has been a wonderful college experience so far.
Best nursing school in the nation! Excellent instructors, supportive community, and top notch education.
