I like that Cuyamaca has a more laid-back style of academics. The campus is nice and the area surrounding it is full of different stores and food stops. They teach you what you need to know and let you make your own academic choices, within reason of course. I would say that they could improve on their counseling department, because they are always busy and students have to wait for an open time to discuss school, but other than that I am very happy with Cuyamaca so far.

I like Cuyamaca college! There is a very down to earth vibe here. They partner with their sister school Grossmont college to provide a wide array of classes and majors. The grounds are beautiful! I do wish they had more online classes or even fast track courses, but over all, it's a great deal and I'm happy.
I am currently going to Cuyamaca for Computer Engineering major. Cuyamaca's campus is small; yet it is very diverse. We have different clubs, great professors, and very friendly tutors. It is a great learning environment, where staff members and students work together to make the most out of the educational goal.
