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.

It's a surprisingly fantastic school. Teachers are all experienced and generally effective educators. There are significant free tools to help you learn and study, including tech help and a free, easily accessible tutoring center. Some of the students are highly motivated, some aren't. The ones who aren't motivated will drop. I've been quite impressed with the whole experience.
Professors at Cuyamaca care and want to see their students move forward and towards their degree and career. The College holds events that can help students. There are amazing clubs that deserve more recognition!
