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.
Review Cuyamaca College
I've enjoyed every semester that I've been here at Cuyamaca College. Not only do they have impressive professors who truely go out of their way to help the students exceed, they also have a large tutoring department which is free. The campus is very beautiful and provides places for study both inside and outside for studying. I keep returning to this school for the extra services like EOPS, the Health and Wellness Center, workshops on a wide variety of subjects. These extra bits and services make each day coming to school more enjoyable.
Cuyamaca college is a beautiful campus filled with teachers who want you to succeed. The majority of students who attend Cuyamaca college are driven and focused on finishing their education. There's a nice amount of parking and the food options they have are delicious. If there was one thing that might improve the campus I can't really name one thing, I'm extremely happy with my experience.
